ILL NINO has parted ways with Roadrunner Records less than a year after the release of its third album, "One Nation Underground". The band, who recently completed a number of U.S. and European dates with guitarist Diego Verduzco filling in for Jardel Paisante (who is said to be dealing with "personal family problems"), will make an appearance on on FJSradio.com, a free Internet radio station, later in the month. On July 27 starting at 4:20 p.m. U.S. EST time, a couple of the ILL NINO boys are going to be on "The Urban Assault" show. They will be sitting in for the entire five-hour program. Fans are encouraged to call, IM, and e-mail the station with questions for the band. Anyone can listen free. All you have to do is visit www.FJSradio.com and click on the "Tune In Live" link.

"The Urban Assault" show is co-hosted and co-created by Omar (a.k.a. Ohmz), who has been featured on all the ILL NINO records.

I saw this comming years ago. This band had a significant amount of hype and enjoys about the share of fame it deserves, but Road Runner are looking for acts that crest gold sales in fewer than 18 monthes....Thats how the ball bounces at RR.

The split was allegedly spurred by the band being unhappy with the lack of promotion and touring support they received in support of their latest release, "One Nation Underground", among other things.

Roadrunner Records only care about sales...and One Nation Underground only sold about 100,000 compared to Confession selling something near 450,000. They'd be better off with an indie label anyway...like Nonpoint with Bieler Brothers.

No they'll probably get on another major label. And like Post 4 said that there wasn't really much promotion on that release. Roadrunner really screwed over Five Point O, not they were very good, but I think they got stuck with something like $75,000 owed to the record company.

dude, you gotta calm down. ...you saw this coming??? what, are you against the mixture of world music into metal? System of a Down follows a very armenian or indian-type sound. Ill nino have a spanish type flavour. Skindred are reggae, jamaican style metal.
i guess you asking if we "RememberMetal?" is just you saying, "I LOVE THE 80'S!!!! AAARRUUGH!"
