Acariya Parts with Bassist Nick Vuona

ACARIYA has parted ways with founding member/bassist Nick Vuona this past week. The separation, though somewhat unexpected, comes with no hard feelings. With regards to Nicks departure the band has released the following statement:

"It is a sad day in the ACARIYA camp as we part ways with our bass player of four years, Nick Vuona. A founding member, Nick has been our brother through this adventure and we are more than sad to see him go. We wish him well and will never forget all the memories and stages we have shared.

"As always, ACARIYA marches on and we are now on the hunt for a new bass player. Please send us a message if you are interested. Serious inquiries only. Must have own equipment, transportation, and a level of commitment that matches our own. We have an album out on Hold True Records that we need to support and a new record to finish. Be ready to hit the ground running."

Hold True Recordings Sends Update On Food Drive

Hold True Recordings has sent in the following post-drive update about the recent food drive they were involved with:

"Hold True Recordings (Bolton, MA) and 91.5fm WUML (Lowell, MA) held a very successful 'on-air' food drive featuring live performances by Beautiful Gorgeous, Dour Cursiva and Acariya. The event brought in a healthy amount of non-perishable caned food and toiletries for the Operation: Military Kids Emergency Food Program, which is housed at the Quinsigamond Village Community Center, in Worcester Ma. Dave Johnson, the director of the QVCC has informed HTR that the food program has taken some major hits over the past few months. Local stores and grocery chains have been opting to sell their dented and dinged caned food to Ocean State Job Lot rather than donate it as they had in the past. This of course means trouble for the families of deployed veterans, whose household income is disrupted from long deployments and re-deployments overseas, who now must depend on the programs 'on demand' food rations. With the projected price of food to increase beyond the rate of inflation from 2008-2010 HTR and WUML's efforts could not be more desperately needed."
