Below is our complete Endwell news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
During the Summer of 2010 as Endwell was recording "Punishment," the band decided to revisit the songs that began this new chapter of its career. One of only two songs songs from the "Revenge Is A Healthy Motive" EP that had not been re-recorded was "Sympathy For All Sufferers," the closing track of the release.
After deciding it would be best to leave the re-recorded version of "Sympathy For All Sufferers" off of "Punishment," the song was set aside. Now two years later, core Endwell members Sean Murphy and Danny Pupplo have mastered the track themselves in between writing and demoing of new material. Check out the song below, and look out for new Endwell music coming soon. More...
American metalcore act Endwell has posted the following statement online, announcing the cancellation of its summer touring plans;
"We’d like to apologize to everyone who was planning on seeing us this summer w/ This is Hell and Decoder but unfortunately we are unable to do these next few weeks worth of dates. This was definitely not an easy decision to make but financially and personally there are some things that just have to be taken care of before we can get out and hit the road for months/years on end again. It bums us out tremendously as we were really excited to get out there in support of our new record "PUNISHMENT."
"We have never pulled out of a tour like this and we promise to make it up to you guys. We’re currently putting together a Co-Headliner right now w/ some cool bands so we can get out there and do a proper FULL U.S. Release tour. Please go support TIH and Decoder this summer as the tours will still be a blast.
"Thanks to everyone who has picked up the new album and has been patiently waiting for us to get to your town. We couldnt do it without you! In the meantime pick up "PUNISHMENT" and look on the brightside, now you have time to learn all the words to scream back at us next time you see us play!"

New York metal band Endwell has issued the following update:
"First off we want EVERYONE who made our European Tour a success! It was a blast we can barely describe how much fun we had with the bands and people we met. So from the bottom of our hearts, thank you SHAI HULUD (Fox, Covey, Mike, Steve, Tim) & TO KILL (Jai, Josh, Camilla, Fausto, Ugo & Tadzio) also The Man BARON BODNAR, Nanouk @ Avocado Booking, everyone at Imperial and of course our driver ODI and tour manager ONDRA!"
"Moving on were extremely excited to announce that we've just begun writing for our new full-length. This will be our 3rd album and 2nd with Mediaskare/Century Media. Were beyond stoked to say the least. I'm not going to start talking about how the album is going to sound because quite frankly were not even sure yet. What I will say is that it's going to be the BEST ENDWELL material to date and it's going to surprise a lot of people. The underground is pretty stagnant right now with every band falling into a niche or sub-genre grouped together with other bands, Therefore, it's our goal to step out of that. We don't want to be pigeonholed. It seems lately that people aren't willing to take many chances and musical creativity has fallen victim to that, so we want to bring something new to the table."

Emmure has addressed Endwell's removal from the "Mosh Lives Tour," which Emmure is headlining. Here's the update from Emmure:
"Let me first start by saying we as a band have been friends with these guys for a while so this is in no way partial to one side or another. Some of you may have noticed that Endwell has been removed from The Mosh Lives Tour. I'd just like to clear up a few things and set the record straight.
"This is a respctable tour with respectable bands and band members. This is our tour and us as Emmure must make sure that this tour is not hindered by immaturity since we are responoble for 6 bands 36 people and all their actions.
"Endwell has been surrounded and plauged with bad decision making since day one. As youll recall they were kicked off a bayside tour as well for lack of any morality, respect, or loyalty to the people that were helping them and were supposed to be friends with.
"They are quick to talk shit but what they won't tell you is that when they first got signed to victory they were pumped they loved it they wouldn't even help us out and get on a show when we needed it because they said they weren't a local band anymore and they couldnt just do that. Victory put them in a Hollywood recording studio for over a month which excessivly exceeded their budget and time. They were provided with one of the top directors for their music video and put in every major music magazine... You would think they would be thankful.
"After their record bombed to put it gently they started getting pissy and blaming everyone underneath the sun except for themselves which seems to be the trend of that band. And all but 2 members quit.
"Before this tour started we started hearing how they were talking shit about us and our record which we confronted them about and they confessed and with a good heart and them being our supposed friends we let it slide and kept them on he tour. The very first day they show up they have a shirt they are selling that is blatantly a slap in the face to victory records and us.
"I don't know if they are just fucking dumb or naive but how the fuck do you show up to a victory records band headlining tour with that type of shot and think its funny? And expect for it to be ok and get away with it?
"Despite what they say they dug their own grave and did this to themselves noone is the bad guy in this except them despite their best efforts to tarnish the face of victory records their true colors really shine through on this one and its just a new low in a bands carreer that doesnt need to get any lower
"Don't shit where you sleep or your gonna wake up in shit."
Endwell then fired back: More...
Endwell has been kicked off of The Mosh Lives Tour that Emmure is headlining. Here's and update from the band:
"First off, we want to apologize to everyone who was planning on coming out and seeing us on the MOSH LIVES tour but unfortunately as of yesterday (Tuesday May 27th) we have been kicked off of the tour because of a T-Shirt....yep that's right. Apparently some people can't take a joke. We were stoked for this tour and looking forward to seeing a lot of old friends and playing some fun shows. Without getting into all the details well leave it at this; some of our good friends receive an email from a certain Tyrant telling them that if we weren't removed from the tour immediately that they would have hell to pay and the outcome was us being asked to leave the tour. We basically drove 30 hours straight to meet up with the tour in Texas and now 2 days later were driving 20 hours back home, it was a good waste of a few hundred dollars in gas.
"Needless to say we're beyond bummed....either way you guys should still go out and support the Mosh Lives tour. There are some great bands and its a great show everynight. We want to thank Recon, After The Burial, Ligeia, Emmure and On Broken Wings for being cool dudes and hopefully we'll get back out there with a few of you again at some point.
"All in all this is just another bump in the road and were not gonna let it slow us down. Our new EP (Revenge Is A Healthy Motive) came out today on Itunes and through our online store, were heading up to Canada in 2 weeks with our pals in MEANS and OCEANS and then right after that we head out on a FULL US tour with Stray From The Path and The Ghost Inside starting in Cali in July. Can't hold us down.....if any hardcore bands are reading this and wanna go on tour hit us up!!! We're gonna be doin our full length at the end of the summer and we're not looking to be home..EVER!"
You can see the shirt design (which appears to be taking a jab at Victory Records, who recenlty dropped the band) in question that got the band kicked off the tour on their Blogspot page.
Victory owner Tony Brummel previously commented on the band's release:
"There is no drama here. Bands and labels go in opposite directions all of the time. Endwell and I are totally cool and they knew about this last week. They are young guys and understandably a bit shocked still and emotional. They know that I will help them in any way that I can in the future. Who knows, we might even end up working together again."
Mediaskare is proud to announce the addition of Queens, NY's ENDWELL to its ever-growing roster of genre pushing bands. The first release from the band through Mediaskare will be a 5 song EP titled 'Revenge Is A Healthy Motive', which will be available exclusively via iTunes and specialty shops on May 27th and at the band's live shows beginning May 25th. The tracks "Mike Tyson" and "Sympathy For All Sufferers" from the EP can be listened to on the band's MySpace page.
The band had the following to say about signing with Mediaskare:
"WE COULDN'T BE HAPPIER WITH THE CHOICE WE'VE MADE! We originally met Baron in LA when we were recording our last album and have kept in touch with him since...we got an all around great feeling for the label while we were on tour with our boys in As Blood Runs Black and there is no one we would rather be family with!"

Yesterday, some people out there noticed that Endwell, Damnation A.D., and All Out War were no longer listed on Victory Records' website as active bands, but rather Victory "alumni." Today, Endwell issued a statement expressing surprise at this development, stating that they found out about it via the Internet.
Rather than deal in speculation, Lambgoat contacted Victory owner Tony Brummel this morning for comment. Brummel had the following to say:
"There is no drama here. Bands and labels go in opposite directions all of the time.
Endwell and I are totally cool and they knew about this last week. They are young guys and understandably a bit shocked still and emotional. They know that I will help them in any way that I can in the future. Who knows, we might even end up working together again.
Damnation has simply not been an active band. I have known these guys forever and we all knew it was a risk to release an 'old-school' band. The album is brilliant but unfortunately there is not the right amount of respect (sales wise) for many of the 'older' bands. This goes for Damnation, AF, Sick of It All etc.
There is nothing to read into this. I am really tired of people reading into things when there is nothing to read into. A band being released is not necessarily a negative thing. We did not sell a great number of albums for either band. It gives them a chance to explore other opportunities."
Queens, New York-based hardcore act ENDWELL has posted a new demo track, entitled "Revenge is a Healthy Motive", on its MySpace page. The song is the projected title cut of the band's forthcoming album, due later in the year via Victory Records. According to the group, "there is a whole lot more influence on this record from the bands weve toured with, the people who have turned their backs on us… the people who have stood by us through thick and thin and never gave up on us. We're writing this record for ourselves and for people who want something a little different. The past few years have undoubtedly put a damper on the music industry and musical integrity to say the least... This is our chance to take it back."
Other songtitles set to appear on "Revenge is a Healthy Motive" include "Sympathy for all Sufferers", "The Gospel of Giving Up", "Shin Splints" and "Everything is Subject to Change".
ENDWELL's full-length debut, "Homeland Insecurity", came out in 2006 on Victory Records.
A new band called Southside Panic has formed, comprised of former members of Endwell, Hulk Blood, Burning Cell and 4 in the Chamber. You can check out two of the band's demos here.
