James Murphy Gives An Update

Guitarist/producer extraordinaire James Murphy (TESTAMENT, DEATH, OBITUARY) has issued the following update:

"Hi everyone. I'm sorry for dropping out. I've been dealing with my grandmother's illness and passing. Several weeks ago she was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor, quite large and inoperable. She has always been a major part of our family life and an 'anchor,' if you will, always there for me with a place to stay and a meal throughout the ups and downs of my career, not to mention her unconditional love.

"Dealing with the emotional side and logistics of always having at least one family member in the hospital with her... And now with the family handling all her final business... It's been overwhelming and ongoing. Her funeral was last week and I have begun to see the light of day again finally.

"Even with these issues I managed to get more recording for the DEATH tribute [album] done. On the day of my grandmother's funeral, after the services, I made the trip to Tampa to record the singer of THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN... And only two days before (one day after she passed) I traveled to Orlando to record the bassist of THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN. It was hard for me to focus but I couldn't lose the opportunity to have these two great musicians on 'Within The Mind'. Their performances for Chuck's [Schuldiner] memory transcend the difficult circumstances I recorded them under.

"I also want to take a moment to express my sadness about the passing of Piggy [of VOIVOD]. I have no words that haven't already been spoken more eloquently than I can manage at this moment. I was given the first two albums as a gift and when number three, 'Killing Technology', came out I was at the store the day it was released. Some months later I stood outside at Janis Landing in St. Petersburg to see the tour and buy the T-shirt. Piggy was, and is, an inspiration."

Dillinger Escape Plan Cancels Gigantour Shows

THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN have been forced to pull out of their remaining Gigantour live dates because of an injury to guitarist Ben Weinman. Weinman severely re-injured his arm Sunday night (having originally injured it several months ago) during the tour's stop in Atlantic City, NJ and was told by a specialist yesterday that he will be unable to perform until further notice.

Weinman commented, "We were enjoying playing every night as part of Gigantour, and to not be able to finish the tour is an enormous disappointment to us."

Gigantour is the traveling hard rock festival founded by MEGADETH frontman Dave Mustaine. Mustaine — who suffered a nearly career-ending arm injury several years ago — said, "We really respect and enjoyed THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN — and will miss them. Meanwhile, I personally hope that Ben has a successful and speedy recovery."

Dillinger Escape Plan Cancel Tour Due To Injuries

THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN have been forced to cancel part of their upcoming tour due to numerous injuries within the band. Guitarist Brian Benoit, who underwent major surgery last December, aggravated his shoulder on their last American tour. The band, with Brian's blessing, recruited ex-FENIX TX guitarist James Love to fill in for all live dates until Benoit was fit enough to return to the fold. However, the night before the band left for Europe, founding member Ben Weinman was involved in an automobile accident that left him in hospital. Undeterred, DILLINGER decided that canceling shows was for other bands and Ben literally went from the hospital to the airport. Unfortunately, during the band's show in Madrid Spain at the Festimad Festival, it became apparent that all was not well with Ben. He blacked out at one point during the set (as a result of injuries sustained in the accident) and the band had to cut their set short as a result. On doctor's orders, Ben has to return home for three weeks of rest (the doctor recommended three months). The band plan to resume their tour at the Fields of Rock festival in Holland on June 18.

Commented Weinman: "DILLINGER are not the kind of band who cancel shows without good reason and unfortunately I have a bad reason — I'm fucked."

Gigantour Running Order, Set Times Revealed

MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine has posted the following message in the "Forums" section of the Gigantour.com web site:

"A few days ago, while considering what to do for the first week or so of shows until THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN joins Gigantour, and what my options were at the time when my fantastic 'co-headliners' DREAM THEATER were going to have to depart, I mentioned that I may move someone to Stage 1 from Stage 2. Well, I am no longer considering that.

"You see, I had contemplated having six acts on each stage, but at that length of time and with that amount of talent, each band would have had their set-time cut down, and I would just be having bands on for the sake of having bands on.

"I am not a 'second-guesser' kind of guy, and I am going to stick with five acts per stage, and keep the set times as long as I can with respect to each band and their accomplishments so far.

"Of course, there is sure to be some instances where one act is bigger than another in a different city as opposed to their position on the bill, but the 'goings on' behind the scenes on a touring festival like this is quite laborious and once things are in a groove, it is much easier AND better for the crew working in the trenches everyday to keep it in the groove. You must know that the bands make it 'rock', but the crews make it "roll."

"So, here are the set times for Stage 1:

MEGADETH - Co-headline (90 mins)
DREAM THEATER - Co-headline (90 mins) confirmed through 6/21-9/3/2005
FEAR FACTORY - Special Guests (45 mins) confirmed 6/21-9/11/2005
THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN - Guests (30 mins) confirmed 8/2-9/11/2005
NEVERMORE - Guests (30 mins) confirmed 6/21-9/11/2005

Stage 2:

LIFE OF AGONY (40 mins) confirmed 6/21-9/11/2005
SYMPHONY X (30 mins) confirmed 6/21-9/11/2005
DRY KILL LOGIC (20 mins) confirmed 6/21-9/11/2005
[last act to be confirmed this week] (20 mins) 6/21-9/11/2005
BOBAFLEX (20 mins) confirmed 6/21-9/11/2005

"Once DREAM THEATER has to leave, I have my short list for the next act to finish out the last week of Gigantour 1 in North America; ANTHRAX, TESTAMENT, and OVERKILL are just to name a few. In fact, I left things with Scott Ian and we both agreed, that it would be a perfect time and position for ANTHRAX, as I am sure it would.

"So, for now, I am pretty much done with all of the selecting talent, excluding the announcement of the "new school who does old school" metal band coming up this week. The holiday took precedence over the tour business and I was unable to wrap this up before the weekend, but it will get finished this week.

"I want to wish a great Memorial Day Weekend to the friends here who celebrate it, and to all of my awesomes guests on the roster for Gigantour 1."

Life of Agony Confirmed For Gigantour

MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine has posted the following message in the "Forums" section of the band's official web site:

"You have spoken, and being a band of the people, by the people, blah, blah, blah. . . it is my privilege to welcome LIFE OF AGONY to Stage 2 of Gigantour.

"Some of you may remember when [MEGADETH] toured with LOA back when Whitfield Crane was subbing for the estranged original singer, but they have reformed, have a new disc coming, and I have a friendship with the boys, and I think will be great to have them around.

"I really like this band and I hope you do too.

"Tomorrow I should be confirming my 'new school band that does old school metal,' and this is prolly going to be the last band on the tour if we don't move a Stage 2 band to Stage 1."

Gigantour is a six-week festival trek co-headlined by MEGADETH and DREAM THEATER. Other main-stage acts include FEAR FACTORY, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN and NEVERMORE. Also scheduled to appear on the second stage are DRY KILL LOGIC, SYMPHONY X and BOBAFLEX.

LIFE OF AGONY will be releasing their new album, "Broken Valley", on June 14 via Epic Records.
