GOAT HORN bassist/vocalist Jason Decay has issued the following statement:
"Brandon Wars and Jason Decay will no longer carry on as GOAT HORN. After years of working together the obstacles in our path to our goals has brought everything to a stand still. Instead of working together with the constant frustrations, a descision has been made and Jason Decay and Brandon Wars [guitar] have gone their seperate ways.
"To all the fans and friends that have supported GOAT HORN through out the years; all is not lost. Through the ashes of this conclusion to the GOAT HORN legacy, Decay and Wars' new music ventures will continue in seperate directions. Jason Decay, along with Al Biddle (drums) will continue on down the GOAT HORN path as CAULDRON once a new guitar player is enlisted.
"It was not an easy descision to make. Although everything came to head at the last show. Sort of like breaking up with a really hot chick that's a psycho. Like she's so hot and you love banging her but in the end you hate the person she is or the person you have become.
"Fan support has been a tremendous fuel for the fire that had inspired GOAT HORN to give back ten fold and has never and will never be taken for granted. I personally feel terrible about what has happened and I am very sorry to every loyal individual of our legion. I never wanted to let anyone down and hopefully this never happens again. Everyone's encouragement and understanding is greatly appreciated in this matter."
Canadian metallers GOAT HORN have parted ways with drummer Steelrider.
Commented bassist/vocalist Jason Decay: "Steelrider has left the band due to a leg condition that has been bothering him for a year and a half. We have a session drummer right now, but we are looking for a permanent replacement. We'll probably wait untill we find the new person before we make an official announcement."
GOAT HORN will be entering the studio this spring to record the follow up to their "Threatening Force" EP. The band are currently in talks with a handful of labels about a possible release of their new CD, which is expected this fall.
GOAT HORN's upcoming CD was hand-picked as one of the "50 Most Anticipated Albums" in the February 2006 issue of Decibel magazine. Other bands featured in the issue included IRON MAIDEN, HATEBREED, IN FLAMES, LACUNA COIL, MASTODON, SLAYER and SHADOWS FALL.
Regarding what the fans can expect from the band's upcoming release, Decay said, "Basically what you can expect is something that you can sit up on a pedestal next to 'Master of Puppets'."
