Soilwork vocalist Speed has posted two messages on the band's official website, the first one being a tour update and the second as an apology to the band's former drummer for forgetting to include him in their new album, "Stabbing the Drama":

Hi there!

Man, we had a great time in San Francisco, Anaheim and Hollywood! Thank you so much for coming out to the shows and giving us such great response!
Unfortuntely as i announced on stage in Anaheim, i got food poisoned in Frisco and had a hard time moving around on stage since i had fever and was puking all day (and while on stage). Now, that?s probably more than you need to know and i?m not gonna excuse myself since i think that me and the band tore it up pretty damn well every night, but thank you for your patience and endless support!
We all went to Rainbow bar and grill last night and all of the boys in the band got pretty wasted except me. I had to take care of my health for just one night.. I had a good time though chatting with Roy Z and drinking Pepsi..
We?re in Phoenix now and it?s so damn hot here as usual... We?re very much looking forward to the show tonight, see you on stage!!!

I would like to take the time and make a statement about our former drummer Richard Evensand (who i still have frequent contact with). For some reason we forgot to put him on the thanxlist of the new album and i really feel bad about it.. I really don?t have an explanation to this more than that we were really late with the thanxlist for the album and it all became very stressed. I just wanna appologize to him and also tell you guys that there?s no hard feelings between the band and him. All i can say is that he?s a very good friend of mine and he definately NOT deserve the bullshit that you guys might have read in magazines and seen on some DVD:s... Richard is now living in Melbourne, Australia and will probably tear it up when you least expect it in another band.. So thank you Ricky and good luck bro!!!
