Cursed frontman Chris Colohan has more or less confirmed the recent rumors of his group's demise. Here's the word:
"Yeah, you heard. Apparently, it gets even worse. That's all I know or even want to know for now. We got robbed at the very end of tour in a totally unreal, extremely sketchy series of events that still makes no sense at all, only leads to paranoia, anger and a total loss of faith. Passports, money, all the costs of the tour. Either way, whoever did it, it was a bullet in the head, the end of the line. A sudden and totally fucked up way for it to end, which I know will be fitting when I look back on it. All we could do was play the show, badly, and go our ways with whatever money we could muster. I hitched a ride back to Prague with Tomas. Since I can't do a fucking thing about it, I'm going to hang out with my girl, and friends, stare at some Czech mountains and try not to think about it. Needless to say, all outstanding plans are off. All this shit aside, thanks to everyone that helped out and travelled from all over for the shows on this tour, all the kids and bands we played and stayed with. Minus a few fucked up shows, it was probably the best tour we ever had. Thanks everyone for your good wishes. I'll elaborate when I'm home next week, for now - yes it's true, and yes it's over."
Canada's CBC Radio 3 has launched the first Full Metal Podcast, hosted by Lisa Christiansen. The podcast features new music from Arapacis, Bison, Cursed, Cryptopsy, Derelict, Divinity, Forty Birds, Gross Misconduct, Penetrator, Protest the Hero, Rammer and Sequoia.
"We play a lot of great music here at Radio 3, and for one radio station we do play an unbelievable number of different genres, from hip hop to folk; electronica to pop and hard rock. But there is one genre that is sadly under-represented - metal.
"But not anymore. Today marks the first Full Metal Podcast for CBC Radio 3. And I couldn't be more um, filled with unholy joy.
"For the past few months a crack team of producers and one eager host, have listened to literally hours of metal tunes from our collection here at New Music Canada. We then sought out the opinions of a few serious metal heads and created this podcast.
"You'll hear music from Protest the Hero, Cursed, Bison, and Cryptopsy. I check in with a touring Cam Pipes of 3 Inches of Blood and ponder the why behind Montreal's metal capital of North America status with legendary drummer Flo Mounier of Cryptopsy.
"It's a cross-country journey through some of the hardest and loudest music being made in Canada today, and it's all in one easy to enjoy package. So kick back and get ready and watch where you bang that head. Neck injuries are not covered by Radio 3."

As previously reported, Cursed frontman Chris Colohan recently formed his own record label called High Anxiety 416.
Cursed frontman Chris Colohan has formed his own record label called High Anxiety 416. Here's the official word from Colohan:
"After wanting to do it for so many years, I'm finally getting around to starting up a small record label to put out mainly (but not exclusively) 7" vinyl, of mainly (but not exclusively) Toronto-area bands and friends' bands. High Anxiety 416 records will be distributed exclusively by No Idea Records worldwide - so any store, distro or individual will be able to get it cheaply and reliably from them. The first 3 EPs in the works are:
Living Darkness (Toronto) - S/T EP
Our Father - (Toronto) - EP
Crux of Aux (members of Cursed) EP
And up ahead (this fall/winter):
Cheap Tragedies - (Clevo Erba-Core) 7"
Lullabye Arkestra - (Toronto, Constellation Records)
Kittens (Winnipeg, 1990's) - Discography
Ruination- final sessions 7" (with extras)
...and some other Cursed-related projects.
Once I can get some records out and everything rolling, I'm hoping to eventually publish several of the books I've been working on for years now: 9 Lives, This Highway Never Fucking Ends, and yes, holy fuck - Other People's Girlfriends.
So that's it. Most of the bands listed above have Myspace pages, check them out - but I don't use it myself. So there won't be a Myspace for High Anxiety 416, but there will be a website up this fall that you can access through the Cursed site."
Cursed vocalist Chris Colohan has written the following statement regarding the band's upcoming new album III, which will be released through Goodfellow Records. An official release date for the album will be confirmed shortly, but here is some information on the album, including song titles and production information:
"Okay. So here's an official statement, as our website has fallen a bit behind. All of III is now recorded, and 80% mixed as of today. It was engineered by our sound bro Donny Cooper (who recorded both the Hell Comes Home and Blackout at Sunrise EPs) and Paul Aucoin at HallaMusic in Toronto, and is being mixed by the great Pete Hudson. The tracks, not necessarily in this order, are:
III: Architects of Troubled Sleep
Antihero Resuscitator (with COLISEUM's Ryan Patterson)
The Hands Will Abide
Dead Air At The Pulpit
Friends In The Music Business
Into The Hive
"...So there, it's real. Thanks to everyone's interest despite the really low profile we've been working in. Honestly, right now, we just want to make songs. The Business makes our heads spin. Thanks so much to Chris Logan (and all Goodfellow crew) for giving a shit and still being a nerd for the music he puts out. Our site should be back up to speed soon, with videos. Donny's been making a video of the III studio sessions, he might cut it together and put it on YouTube so you all can check it out if you want to really smell the fuckin' magic."
Goodfellow hardcore act Cursed has posted a new track from their upcoming EP. The disc is the follow up to their sophomore release, Two. You can check out the first track from Blackout at Sunrise on their MySpace page.
Cursed, who recently finished up work on their upcoming new EP "Blackout At Sunrise" (which will see a release this fall/winter on CD, 7" and picture disc,) are eyeing a tentative March release date through Goodfellow for their new album "III" which they will begin recording in the coming months.
Cursed has finished recording their new EP, "Blackout at Sunrise." Recording took place with Donnie Cooper in Hamilton, Ontario and the effort will be a 7" picture disc and CD single, which will include a "surprise Canadiana cover song." Goodfellow Records will release the EP late this summer.
