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."
