Vocalist Peter Kowalsky of Florida based act Remembering Never has issued the following announcement about parting ways with the band:
"This is my last transmission as part of this band. I've lost my passion of the fight for humanity and bringing certain injustices at the forefront of communication.
"I'm sure the band will go on and have a successful new record and there is no bad blood. Please support them always. Thanks for the years."

Ft. Lauderdale, Flordia's Remembering Never have announced details regarding their upcoming new album, titled "This Hell Is Home". The album will be the band's first new release in four years and will be issued through Dead Truth Recordings. The band have also announced a select few concert dates to take place in July. Remembering Never have posted a new demo, titled "Time Eraser", via their myspace page.
Concert dates include:
July 10 – Pembroke Pines, FL @ The Talent Farm
July 21 - Augusta, GA @ Sector 7g
July 22 – Virginia Beach, VA @ Skate High (Awesomefest 2010)
July 23 - Allentown, PA @ Crocodile Rock Cafe/Cafe Under
July 24 – Fredericksburg, VA @ The Refuge
July 25 - Columbia, SC @ The Elbow Room
Remembering Never vocalist Pete Kowalsky commented by saying:
"The album will be released through Dead Truth Recordings (unless someone wants to give me a large suitcase full of crisp and clean $100 bills). We are still in the writing process but we have about 4 songs nailed down solid and about 5 more near completion. We wish we could make it a full U.S. tour but unfortunately jobs/school/responsibilities get in the way of a 40 day nonstop metalcore party and we simply cannot commit to an extensive run. We are going out for 5 days and bringing some good friends and solid bands. A very eclectic bunch. On the run is Forty Winters, My Amends with Hivemind and Dirty Habits on select dates. When we have free time from reality we will be fitting jam sessions in across the country.”
Remembering Never frontman Peter Kowalsky (aka Mean Pete) has revelaed to Lambgoat.com that he is once again working on new material with Danny (the two make up the duo who wrote most of the band's latest effort). Here's an excerpt from Pete's update:
"The RN camp as of late is in the beginning stages of blueprinting and kicking around ideas for whatever will be our new record, This Hell Is Home. Lambgoat took time out of their schedule to inquire about the late and not so great happenings.
"RN kind of imploded after our last tour with The Warriors and Full Blown Chaos that started when our long time drummer quit. When Danny left, we had a few fill-ins and just overall morale flew south, more so than ever. Touring 5 years non-stop with the same people will no doubt eventually turn into a very volatile situation, especially when one or more people suffer from depression and/or bi-polar disorders. Being in the band started feeling more like a business than a bunch of friends having fun. For the longest time I didn't even want to think of anything related to RN due to the mental strain it put me through. The stone cold truth of the matter is, because of the band, most of us were no longer friends, and it felt more like a chore than an opportunity to play shows in front of people that cared enough to come to the show and hang and have fun. For me, it's more important to be friends with the people that you put time and effort in with to write jams and tour with. There was a time we were more excited to go to random mall and steal everything in sight than to play the show later that day. Or for me and Aldo's case, we just wanted to go to used record stores and buy/trade as much awesome cheap shit we could. Actually, that part was great."

On Friday, June 2nd, I attended the Devildriver show at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ. Along with Devildriver were Artimus Pyledriver, Remembering Never, Bury Your Dead, and If Hope Dies. I arrived late due to a need to stop and pick up dinner. Once I arrived, I began eating my dinner after checking in with Dez from Devildriver and meeting all their friends outside the Devildriver camper. Dinner was cut short as I had to conduct my interview with Devildriver's drummer, John Boecklin. John and all of Devildriver's friends, along with Dez and all the members of Devildriver were very nice and hospitable to me. I was treated as a friend and felt among friends, although during the interview there were many interruptions.
My interview with Devildriver drummer, John Boecklin was conducted on Devildriver's camper and, as mentioned, was interrupted quite frequently until John finally yelled for the door to be kept shut. After the interview, I walked out to rain and thunder and immediately hoped my dinner had been saved from the rain, which it had been, much to my relief. I thanked a friend of the band for saving my dinner and asked Dez and John if I could finish eating on their camper; they were kind enough to say yes. So, I went and finished eating on their camper. WhenI met my friend in side the venue, I found out that I had missed If Hope Dies and learned that they weren't that great. When I went down to the pit area, I saw Artimus Pyledriver in the middle of their set. More...

Zao have been forced to drop off of the remaining dates of Ferret Music's "Under The Gun Tour" due to an injury sustained by frontman Daniel Weyandt. Co-Headliners Madball and Remembering Never, in addition to support acts The Banner and Scarlet, will continue the tour as scheduled.
Weyandt broke four bones in his left-hand as a result of a "back-stage mishap." The accident resulted in a sizeable cut that apparently exposed one bone for over 12 hours and became ultimately infected. Three different doctors have ordered the singer to return home immediately and visit a specialist. Fortunately, Weyandt is expected to make a full recovery.
Zao guitarist Scott Mellinger issued the following statement:
"We can't apologize more strongly to the other bands and especially our fans who were planning on seeing us on the remaining dates. We want nothing more than for Dan to get better and we fully intend to crush once again with Dan on the Demon Hunter tour this summer."

One Day Savior Recordings will re-release Remembering Never's debut EP, "Suffocates My Words," on February 7th. The re-release will feature a new layout from RN guitarist Norm, a remastering, and an unreleased version of the track "A Clearer Sky."
Remembering Never has just begun work on their next album to be titled "God Save Us" and will be released on Ferret Music in Feb 06. The Ft. Lauderdale based band made up of Mean Pete (vocals), Grease (guitar), Aldo (bass), Norm (guitar) and Danny (drums) are known for their sound incorporating chaotic hardcore, shards of melody and strong political and ethical lyrics. The band has sold over 35,000 copies of their previous album "Women & Children Die First," which they toured non-stop over the last two years to support with such groups as Terror, The Acacia Strain, Throwdown, Most Precious Blood, Eighteen Visions and many more.
The group are locked in the studio with famed producer Zeuss in his Massachusetts based Planet Z studios for the next month. Known for his ability to create some of the loudest and fullest albums including work with Madball, Shadows Fall, Hatebreed and Throwdown, it was actually his work on Blood Has Been Shed's recent album that won over Remembering Never to working with him. The vocalist of Blood Has Been Shed is Howard Jones who also sings in a little band called Killswitch Engage and also manages Remembering Never. When asked about the new album, Mean Pete responded "Well everyone progresses, so there are definitely natural changes in the music over time, but it's Remembering Never. In the lyric department it's the most personal album I've ever written." That means furious things are in store as Remembering Never is at the fore of bringing the message back into hardcore. The album booklet for "Women And Children Die First" ends with the statement from Mean Pete: "Being in a hardcore band, it is my privilege and my responsibility to share ideas."
xBishopx, featuring Remembering Never vocalist Mean Pete and formerly known as xDiary of a Corpsex, have reportedly signed with Ferret Music. No official word on the matter has been released. Regardless, this past weekend the band entered Southern Noise Studio (Kids Like Us, Torche) in Florida to begin recording their debut full-length. Titled "Suicide Party," the effort will hit stores in early-2006.
Remembering Never have recruited producer Zeuss (Shadows Fall, Hatebreed) to helm their upcoming new album "God Save Us", which they expect to have in stores through Ferret in February.
The Black Dahlia Murder, Zao, Bleeding Through, Most Precious Blood, Remembering Never, Drowningman, The AKAs and more are among the new artists set to appear on the upcoming Reignition Records reissue of "Black On Black: A Tribute To Black Flag". A release date has yet to be announced.
