Below is our complete Disma news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Drummer Shawn Eldridge from Disma just issued the following announcement about deciding to quit the band:
"Unbeknownst to me, I've apparently 'quit the band, because I'm sick,' and certain members have been actively seeking a replacement.
"As some are aware (though most are not), I've been experiencing and seeking treatment for nerve damage that has resulted from past cancer treatments. This, as could be imagined, has moments that affect not only daily life, but my ability to play drums as well.
"Despite these setbacks, I've managed to continue recording and performing with Disma, as well as the other groups I'm involved in.
"That being said, various drummers have been asked to join (without having ever been discussed with me), under the implied notion that I've quit the band, which is in fact not true. Well, it can now be said truthfully that I've quit the band.
"Now with all niceties aside - a firm 'Go Fuck Yourself' to those who lack the patience and understanding I needed during these times, and a sincere thank you to those who have continuously shown their support and true friendship." More...

The initial lineup is as follows:
the Mob (England)

The list of bands above is only an initial lineup. One hundred-plus more bands will be announced in the future.
After Demonical announced it will not be playing Rites of Darkness, Disma, Evoken, and Funebrarum have all checked with the following joint statement about canceling their appearances at the festival:
"We have all decided to cancel our appearances at 'The Rites of Darkness Festival' in San Antonio, Texas on December 10-11th due to the fact that the promoter has still not followed through with his promises and obligations to us (tickets, transportation, hotels etc). We apologize to our fans who have already purchased tickets but the situation is beyond our control. We have reached the end of our patience with Daniel Serna and foresee only more problems. Again we are sorry to have to make this decision but this treatment and unprofessional behavior is unacceptable!!"
Evoken also added:
"Apologies for those looking forward to seeing Evoken as well as our brothers Disma and Funebrarum. We promise to make it up to those who paid their hard earned money to see us. This wasn't a decision taken light.
"We're not here to slam anyone, but being one of the first bands announced for the festival, it should not take up until one week before a performance to receive any information. We will not re-consider, we will not compromise."
