Candiria Part Ways With John LaMacchia

Candiria have parted ways with guitarist John LaMacchia, here's the official word from band bassist Michael MacIvor:

"I just wanted to take this time to make a lil announcement about this upcoming tour that we are about to embark on. Those of you who will be coming out to see us on this next run of dates will be the first people to see the debut of Candiria's two new guitarists. That's right we have two new members of the band. The two new guys are Steve Fakelman and Darren Carter. Some of you will know Darren by the name he uses on our forum, DC11.

"These two guys rip as guitarists, and I have to use this time to both thank them for being great musicians and having the talent to learn our music in record time. These guys have so much heart it's ridiculous and they have the chops to back it up."

"Now, I know that you guys must be thinking "ooohhh drama". But it ain't like that. John has left the band but it really is for everyones best interest. It's hard for me to actually admit that, but I am coming to terms with it and it really is the truth. Eric is gearing up to have a back surgery that is going to put him out of commission for several months. The past few months of touring have been hard on all of us, but Eric is in really bad shape. So for the best interest of his health, it was imperative for him to have this surgery."

"So Candiria could have taken these obstacles and had a " woah is me " attitude. But being the improvisers that we are we did just that. Improvised. We made some phone calls , booked a plane ride and had a few jam sessions. And we are ready to go. I shit you not, I am so confident in hitting the road in the next few days. I can't wait to play with these guys. And what I really can't wait for is the Stillborn fest dates. Because I know that by then we are going to be on fire. Never a dull moment in our world."

Candiria Introduce New Guitarists

Candiria have posted the following message on their official web site:

"Tomorrow we start our next run of dates with Nonpoint and Dry Kill Logic. We are excited to get back on the road and bring it for ya'll once again. This is a short one only lasting about two weeks, but we are planning some killer shows. And we are capping the month off with performances on this year's Stillborn fest.

"Those of you who will be coming out to these shows will be the first people to see the debut of our two new guitarists. Yes, you heard me right. Candiria has two new guitar players and they rip shit up. One of them is permanent and one is a fill-in for Eric while he gears up for another back surgery.

"Our forum members will be happy to hear that one of our new guys is forum member Darren Carter a.k.a DC11. Our other new bro is Steve Fakelman, formerly of the group Trudge. These guys have done a fantastic job getting the material together in next to no time and we are so excited for their debut.

"So these are going to be some dynamite shows to say the least. I hope to see all of you guys out there when we pass through your towns."

Candiria are currently out on tour in support of their latest release, "What Doesn't Kill You", which was released in July on Type A Records.

Candiria Come Back From The Dead

Candiria have returned from a two-year hiatus and things have clearly changed.

July marked the release of What Doesn't Kill You... an opus that destroys any notion folks thought they had about this Brooklyn band, who have taken their style of extreme hardcore to completely unexpected levels.

The change in music reflects the difficulties the band have been through in the past couple of years. Besides feuding with former labels, in September of 2002 Candiria were involved in a van collision with an 18-wheeler while touring, nearly killing the entire band — hence the title of the new album.

Candiria bassist/backup vocalist Michael Macivor spoke with ChartAttack recently about the incident: More...

Diecast Video Shoot And Tour Update

Boston-based quintet Diecast just shot a video for "Medieval" with acclaimed director Dale Resteghini (Fear Factory, Hatebreed). The track comes off of the band's highly anticipated new album, "Tearing Down Your Blue Skies," set for an October 19th release. Jeremy Wooden (bass) checks in with the following band update:

Diecast just had a very busy weekend. First I'd like to thank Mike Hsu and WAAF for the interview on Harder Faster on Thursday night. On Friday, we shot our first video for our single "Medieval." I'd like to thank Scott Lee for being so cooperative and allowing us to use Fat Cat's if we had needed it. At the last minute we were able to end up shooting the video at Fort Revere in Hull, which was amazing. We were expecting a few cameras and a couple of people for the video. What we got were 4 box trucks full of equipment and a 15 person video crew. Dale and his crew were some of the best people we've ever met. We had camera's on mini railroad tracks, lighting, fog machines, guns, hookers and fire-trucks. For a minute I thought I was playing bass for Britney Spears....it was awesome. I'd like to thank all of our friends we haven't seen in a long time for coming out to be in the video. We even had a surprise guest appearance by the almighty hoods in the video.

On Saturday night we played a hometown show at Club Liquid, which is about a mile from my house. The club took great care of us and the show went well minus the fight that happened and some asshole owes me 150.00 for putting their foot through my bass case. We topped it off on Sunday at WAAF sponsored Locobazooka. Unfortunately, for us and Candiria we went on after Damageplan who closed their set with "Walk" by Pantera. That was a tough act to follow but Candiria ripped it up, brought all the kids running back over and the crowd gave us an amazing reaction. Kids were singing our new stuff all the way to the back of the crowd, which was amazing to us. I'd also like to thank our manager Mike Crowley and his buddy Kevin for helping out all weekend. Last but not least we finally got scrims and a banner, which almost made me cry tears of joy. Thanks everyone for a great weekend and we'll see you soon.

Diecast will also embark on a string of headlining west-coast dates in early November. It has been three years since the band hit this area and these shows are not to be missed.

10/15 The Edge - Augusta, ME (Record Release Show)
10/16 Downtime - New York, NY (CMJ Showcase)
10/17 The Bomb Shelter - Manchester, NH
10/31 The Kave - Bucksport, ME (Halloween Party)
11/04 The Whisky - West Hollywood, CA w/ All Shall Perish
11/05 Big Game - Fresno, CA
11/06 Chain Reaction - Anaheim, CA w/ Cattle Decapitation, Black Dahlia Murder

Unearth Update From Trevor

Unearth arrived home from Ozzfest but the band has not stopped working. Unearth are gearing up to practice for their first headline tour.

To say the least, guitarist Ken Susi is very enthusiastic about the tour. "It is invigorating to finally have our first headline tour; we are so excited to play our first full set."

Unearth just came off of the biggest tour, this summer's Ozzfest 2004 - "I must admit that we learned a lot watching the other headline bands this summer, Ozzfest felt like the proving ground for us and I am confident that we are a better band from the Ozzfest experience and are now a more professional career band. Expect to see Unearth at its best we will play our hardest every night."

Vocalist Trevor Phipps is psyched by the lineup and the fact that the band are headlining a club tour, " I am stoked about this tour package, I will get to watch three amazing bands every night; I am also thrilled to play small clubs again - this is where we come from."

Unearth update from Trevor:

Our show at Brew Ha-Ha’s in Winston-Salem, North Carolina has been changed to Ziggy’s. Our tour will now be playing with Shadows Fall, The Haunted, Candiria and All That Remains on that date only. Tickets should be on sale for all the shows on our upcoming US headlining run. Make sure to pick up your tickets before they are gone. Tour starts in two weeks! See you all soon.
