Throwdown No Longer Under Contract w/ Trustkill

During a recent interview with MetalSucks, Throwdown guitarist Mark Choiniere has effectively stated that the band has fulfilled their contractual obligations to Trustkill Records. Here's an excerpt from the interview:

"This was your last album for Trustkill, right?

Mark Choiniere: Right.

And I know Dave [Peters] has made some very public anti-record company remarks, do you guys feel like you're done with the industry?

Mark Choiniere: No, I don't think so. I think Dave was merely speaking from personal... it was definitely more him. I mean, the band definitely backs him, but just from personal experiences... not necessarily bashing record companies in general, which I know it sounded like."

Do you feel like you had a negative experience with Trustkill?

Mark Choiniere: I mean, I don't like to talk shit, but... I just think things could have gone better. Just from touring with other bands and hearing how their record label helped them be the band that they are... it's just kinda like, we could only imagine what it would be like to be on a label that really pushes you. That's all I can say, I guess."

Soilwork Cancel Tonight's Show In Dallas, Texas

SOILWORK has been forced to cancel their Dallas appearance this evening at The Door with THROWDOWN, THROUGHT THE EYES OF THE DEAD and WAR OF AGES. The following statement was given on behalf of the band by their tour manager:

“Soilwork regret missing the show but the weather conditions prevented us from making the near 700 mile drive to the show from our previous night's headline show. We were stopped by an ice storm that nearly caused our bus to crash in the middle of the night. The roads could not be travelled. We are currently stranded in western Texas where there was an ice storm last night and everything is covered in ice. It actually started in New Mexico and I am surprised we even got this far. The roads are not drivable. They are all iced over and all cars and trucks are pulled off until they thaw. Being we are still close to 500 miles away and the temperature is not due to rise for hours our driver won't drive. The wind is strong and the bus was literally sliding off the highway with all the ice and we were only driving 15 mph. Last night we almost flipped the bus trying to navigate these roads and the bus actually turned sideways sliding down causing it to almost flip over. Looks like it snows in Texas when the Swedes come over here. Very rare.“
