Silent Civilian Comment On Nothingface/Crossbreed

Silent Civilian frontman/guitarist Jonny Santos has issued a statement regarding the Nothingface/Crossbreed situation that took place on the bands tour together, here's what he had to say:
?Regardless of any differences some bands may have with Nothingface, I would like to say this... We have been on this tour since day one, and Nothingface has treated us like family. Being in a band and touring for the better part of the last 8 years, I have learned that there are certain guidelines and rules that apply when you are a support act. Knowing this, any band on a tour like this should follow these guidelines. That?s just how it is. If you don?t play ball, not only is it not cool, but you could find yourself being kicked off of a tour. With that said, we have had the best time on this tour and feel that we have life long friends in the Nothingface family/band/crew. There were difficulties between certain bands on this tour that could not be rectified, and it was very unfortunate. None of us wanted to see that happen. But... from a 3rd party that was a witness to everything that happened, I would like to say that we feel Nothingface are some of the most awesome guys I/we have ever had the pleasure of touring with, and we are sad that the tour is coming to an end. If ever asked to tour with them again, I would not hesitate to accept their offer."

"This tour is a way for us all to give something back to the soldiers who put their lives on the line to protect America's freedom," says DOPE's lead singer Edsel Dope.

MUSHROOMHEAD's first DVD, "Volume 1", is set for release on July 26, which is also the same day that DOPE's new studio album, "American Apathy", hits streets.

MUSHROOMHEAD's DVD features concert and backstage footage that the band has put together over the last few years. The DVD gives fans an intimate look inside the life of the eight masked maniacs of MUSHROOMHEAD on and off stage.

MUSHROOMHEAD is currently working on a new studio album, which is set for an early 2006 release.

The first single from DOPE's "American Apathy", titled "Always", was just #1 most added at rock radio its first week out and is steadily climbing up the charts.
