Latest Scarlet News
Below is our complete Scarlet 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.
After 4 years since their debut on Ferret Music, Richmond's Scarlet has officially called it quits. This decision was primarily based on the recent departure of second singer, Brandon Roundtree.
"We feel it would be unfair to fans, and to ourselves, to try and continue with yet another singer."
Andreas, Bryan, and Randy would like to thank all of their Fans, Ferret Records, and former members, Jon Spencer, Dan Tulloh and Chris Hagen, for some of the best times in their lives to this point. Despite the break up, Andreas and Randy, who co-wrote and produced all Scarlet records, are exercising their desire to create non-metal music. They have currently formed a new band entitled Coworker, and have been in the studio recording new material. You can check out Coworker on their MySpace page.
Scarlet leave us with a limited edition MCD 'Something To Lust About', and 2 full length albums, 'Cult Classic' and the foreboding 'This Was Always Meant To Fall Apart'.
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."
The full lineup for the 8th Annual New England Metal and Hardcore Festival, which is sponsored this year by ESP Guitars and Krank Amps, has been confirmed.

The band members of Scarlet were in an auto accident recently. Below is a brief account of their accident - since writing this they hopped a greyhound for a few hundred miles, bought a new van, drove it back to get their gear and caught back up with their tour and will continue on missing no further dates.
"Hello everyone: Yesterday, being Wednesday January 25, 2006, we were involved in a terrible van wreck. We were driving as normal as can be when all of a sudden, the rear left wheel of our van decided to take a vacation. Our van drifted violently from side to side, it scraped the middle guardrail and then shot all the way to the outside edge of the southbound highway, and then finally made a huge horseshoe movement all the way from there, to the inside edge of the northbound highway. Our vacated tire followed us in flames. We did not flip the van because our trailer was kind enough to snap off and take all the flipping duties upon itself.
As we exited the van, we walked 30 feet to where our trailer rested. There, our eyes were greeted by a fine definition of irony. Amongst the two wrecked machines, and the little brush fires our flaming wheel started, a few copies of our new record littered the grass. "This was always meant to fall apart" was everywhere, and we all could not help but laugh.
As all the events began to calm down, we ultimately were able to receive a ride to our destination that night and went on with the show. Our thanks go entirely to the great bunch of guys that is the Esoteric and their incredible tour manager Mean Dean. We owe them big time. We also wanted to whole heartedly thank the fine people of Kansas City, MO that came out to show, kindly gave us donations, and overall gave us a few hours to forget what had just happened to us.
Right now we are stranded in Lawrence, MO awaiting our new transportation. We hope to continue the tour, hopefully by the Reno date. We apologize for the shows we will miss, but assure you all that they will still be, without a doubt, amazing shows. We are working diligently to return. We are all still alive."
Ferret Music will be sending several of their acts out on the road together as part of the "Under The Gun" 2006 tour. The trek will feature Madball, Zao, Remembering Never, Scarlet and The Banner across the entire U.S. from March 14th through April 16th. With the exception of the two shows below, dates have yet to be confirmed. Stay tuned.
4/4 Anaheim, CA @ House Of Blues
4/5 Tempe, AZ @ Clubhouse

Scarlet will make their first live appearance in over a year on November 5th. The show will take place at the Nanci Raygun in Richmond, VA with Cassius and This TIme It's War. Meanwhile, the group's new Ferret Music release will hit stores on 1/24/2005.
Goodfellow Records has announced the signing of Virginia metalcore quintet SPITFIRE to a new two album deal. The band, who recorded a CDEP for Goodfellow in 2001, is currently working on a new upcoming full-length album. It will be their first new release in four years.
“We couldn’t be happier to have Spitfire as an addition to our lovely family of bands,” says Goodfellow label owner Chris Logan. “2006 couldn’t come soon enough, so the world can hear the new chapter in this bands career.”
The band is spending the month of September recording at Red Planet studios in Virginia with producer Andreas Magnusson (Black Dahlia Murder, Scarlet). The album, tentatively entitled Self-Help, will be released in early 2006.
The band recently reformed, adding guitarist Scottie Henry from the metal outfit Norma Jean and Dan Tulloh from the shock rocking Scarlet. Musically, SPITFIRE plays a hybrid of metal and hardcore that is comparable to bands such as Every Time I Die, The Melvins, and even Deadguy as well as the speedy punk rock of Hot Snakes. You can check out some of their past material on MySpace.
