Nodes Of Ranvier has set the record straight regarding their line-up changes, issuing the following statement:
"As you have probably noticed, we have had some lineup changes over the past year and a half. Ryan Knutson stepped down from his drumming position last summer to spend more time with his wife and his new contracting business. Ryan is currently writing songs on his own so you may hear from him again sometime in the future. Nick Murphy also decided to call it quits for reasons beyond our comprehension and we believe it was best for all parties for this change to take place. We wish both Nick and Ryan the best and hope that they are happy in the endeavors they are now a part of.

We are confident that you will enjoy the direction that Josh's percussive style has brought to the band without loosing the sound this band has become akin to.
Our vocal change brought in Omaha, NE native Kyle Benecke. You may have met Kyle when he filled in with Saved by Grace or his long term vocal showcase with System Failure. Kyle has brought a vocal range that this band has never seen in a frontman and that was what solidified our decision to go with him. Kyle holds a level of forceful screams meshed with discernable annunciation that makes the importance of what he has written on this album stand out."

I arrived at the show late by about an hour or so, missing some of the opening acts on both stages. As with last years show I was given the run around regarding my photo-pass which should have been waiting for me at the front gate. Though this year it didn’t take an hour to figure out I was on this list, which was miss placed at the will call window and I only back tracked once. More...
