Latest Stray From The Path News
Below is our complete Stray From The Path 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.
Stray From The Path has penned a new song, "Talking Tragedy," to benefit The Ghost Inside as the members of that band recover from their horrific November 2015 bus accident.
Stray From The Path’s guitar player Tom Williams comments: “We have been touring for the better part of our career. Our first national tour was with The Warriors, Elysia and The Ghost Inside (tour was sick). It was one of The Ghost Inside's first national tours as well, with bands that were big names to us, and we did it together. This was back in 2008, and we've remained best friends ever since. We've toured the world together, we've shared a bus together on Warped Tour, Vigil sang on two of our records, we did a lot.
"When they crashed, we were in Europe and we were about to go on stage. We couldn't care less about playing, because we weren't sure if the people that were very close to us were alive or not. Right before our set, I got a call from Zach's phone and it was Jim. He grabbed a random phone on his way to the ambulance, and told us to spread the word that right now they were alive, but people have been airlifted to the hospital and that’s all he knew.
"By now, everyone knows this story. What makes this story special is the fact that all of these people came together and got their backs. Bands that were friends with TGI, bands that have never met them before and complete strangers who held that band so dear to their hearts were giving their hard earned money to support The Ghost Inside. It’s that sense of community that makes our music scene so special, and I’m glad it lived up to our expectations. More...

Stray From The Path has issued the following announcement about dropping a forthcoming tour with The Acacia Strain and Emmure:
"Sadly, we have announced that Stray has pulled out of the Emmure/Acacia Strain tour. Its been a ridiculous year for us and the hardest we have ever toured, with something like 44 days off since January, and despite our previous ideas that not being on tour was the worst possible scenario for the band, its caught up with us and severely affected our personal lives at home.
"In our heads, we thought not being on tour was wrong, and that for us, not touring was a cause of cancer, not touring should be avoided, not touring would make our dicks fly off. We have never cancelled anything in our career, so hopefully everyone knows how serious a situation had to be in order for us to feel the need to make this decision.
"There are a lot of people behind the scenes that put work into a tour, promoters, agents, bands, managers, friends and most importantly supporters of our band, that we let down in this scenario, but still thought that it would be better for the future of this band, which is extremely important to us, and we hope everyone mentioned above.
"We will be utilizing this time to finish up writing our next album, and we hit the studio this February with Will Putney, and then hitting the road again immediately after.
"Finally, our apologies to Emmure, The Acacia Strain, Fit For A King, and Kublai Khan, and everyone involved. Sylar will be added to the tour, and our boys in FFAK will be taking our spot. See you all again in early 2015."

Tom Williams (guitars) states: “The idea behind Anonymous is doing something selflessly because you think that it will be better for the human race. What we want to accomplish with this record is to raise awareness for things that concern us with our country, share personal issues throughout our lives and bring you a record that is heavy, fresh and powerful. The main musical focus of Anonymous is to capture the universal language, that is, bobbing your head. Everybody can feel it, no matter what style of music, people can feel the flow. We want to harness that feeling and bring it to the masses across the world.” More...

The third annual installment of the AllStars Tour is taking shape for this summer, and Buffalo's Every Time I Die will be this year's headliner (the abnd's final run in support of the "Ex Lives" album).
The tour will also feature Chelsea Grin, Veil of Maya, Terror, Stray From The Path, Capture The Crown, IwrestledABearOnce, For All Those Sleeping, and DayShell. Structures, Volumes, and other bands TBA will also be performing in select markets.
Every Time I Die's Keith Buckley (vocals) states: “We've always put a lot of effort into making this band work and when we perform we do so at the highest level of intensity, so to finally be deemed an 'AllStar' is a dream come true. I plan on relaxing in a hot tub with Wade Boggs or smoking huge cigars with Ronnie Harmon talking about our visits to Hollywood. Those are just some casual things us AllStars do when we're not giving 110%. But that's rare. This tour has a solid line-up and we're excited to be a part of it. See you all this summer.”

Stray From The Path has issued the following statement about having the Reno stop of the All Stars Tour cut short:
"I'm sorry Reno for our set getting cut short. We will not tolerate security guards choking out kids for singing along , and we had to stand up for our fans. We will not tolerate our crew member getting punched in the face by security. We do what we do for the kids, and nothing else. In the end we were thrown out of the venue for 'inciting a riot.'
"Nobody should be treated the way that kid was treated. That's someone's son, brother, or best friend. He was going off for our band and was assaulted.
"Don't stand for this at your shows. This is about you, us and music, not power tripping security guards."

Special guests Backtrack and Northlane will also be coming along for the trek, kicking off September 10th. The following press release was also issued:
"It is no coincidence that listeners of Stray From The Path will often have a difficult time confining them to a specific genre. The have made it a point to remain unpredictable, intricate, and intelligent. Listeners can expect their music to surpass the gratuitous and/or contrived music that is all too common today, and instead perform articulate songs that refuse to compromise their precision, honesty, and genuine desire to impress.
