"On August 7th we'll be play a show in Brandon, MB with Illusive Mind Gypsy Crew as well as Wake from Calgary! So if you're in the area come out and support. There may be another band on the bill but so far we've had little luck finding one to play.

"It's been awhile since we've updated everyone out there but we are still alive and kicking. We will hopefully be playing some shows this summer. We've just recently added a Vocalist that goes by the name of Trauma and a Guitarist that goes by the name of Bontey. The songs are getting a lot tighter and dynamic so look out for some demoed songs in the near future, both new and updated.
"Recording....well, we are getting ready for our full length album and in doing so we are going to be recording/demoing some of the new songs as well as the an updated version of an older song. Once done we'll make sure we put them up on our MySpace.
"Finally to end things, we've moved to October's Mist Records, which is the parent label to Beneath the Fog. It's on the major side of labels. We look forward to the new change, the growth and opportunity that has been presented to us."

"Dear Frost Legion, I'm taking this time to address you all on my departure from Hoarfrost. I began playing in Hoarfrost in 2008, part of the original line up. I now feel it's time to move on and focus on doing something else. Many of you know that I have another band, Kuldakaust which I will be moving my focus to after I'm finished playing with Hoarfrost.
"I will be playing the Of Human Bondage/Woods of Ypres show on June 19th and the second School's all out show on June 26th which will be my last show. I'd like to thank Kyle, Ryan, Scott, and Craig for the times we've shared on the stage as a band and off as friends.
"I'd also like to thank the fans for supporting Hoarfrost and hope that you continue to support the band after I'm gone, which I'm sure you all will do. Hopefully down the road you'll see a Hoarfrost/Kuldakaust show. To my band mates, friends, and fans thank you for all the great times."
