Disciples of Power has checked in with the following year-end recap thanking fans and promoters:
"2013 was a great year at the DOP camp. An amazing comeback show in Edmonton that will resonate in our minds for some time. Thanks to Tyson, Cara and crew at the pawnshop for making it such a success! Also thanks to Nate for including us in the Calgary Metal fest and Slim for recording it all! Also the last minute show at DV8 to raise funds for the food bank wouldn't have been possible with out Rod's help and enthusiasm.
"We'd also like to thank all the bands we have played with in 2013 and promoters who put it all together, but most of all you the fans who have supported our return to the stage! All of you guys who have come out to show your support and love for the music that our brethren Hart Bachmier put so much of himself into have been amazing!!! I'm sure he would be overwhelmed by the response!
"We are all extremely proud to be back out playing this music and you all have made it so worth while and we can't wait to share with you the big things coming up for DOP in 2014!
"Cheers and have a great new year!" More...

"Disciples of Power has officially reformed. Unfortunately, Hart Bachmier will not be joining us. We respect his decision and reasoning and continue on with his blessing. Hart will always be our metal brother and good friend. We wish him the best. In Dust we Trust bassist Andy Smith will also not be joining us, Cheers brother.
"2013 will see the return of Canadian metal legends Disciples of Power. The band split up in 2002 after a 15 year history that had seen the band release 5 full length albums and perform numerous shows form 1988 to 2002. We respect the music, history and what it means to many of our fans. We are dedicated to bringing you the power, energy, dynamics and mind warp that is synonymous with Disciples of Power.
"The new line-up consists of alumni members... Wes Sontag: guitar, and Dean Relf: drums, and new members... Shane Hawco: vocals (who was a part of Section VIII with Wes and Dean and sang numerous shows for DOP back in 1995 - 97 before going on to join Thorazine, Exit Strategy and WAKE) and Ben Harbak: guitar (currently from The Noumenon and formerly of Acantha and Begrime Exemious - he has been a huge DOP fan for may years and the music has helped shape him into the guitarist he is today). We are currently auditioning like minded individuals to fill the bass position.
"We dedicate future shows to our fans, the music, and everyone who believed in this band from day one. We will see you all in 2013! Cheers!"
