Candiria Album Delayed

Candiria continues to operate in a holding pattern following the departure of drummer Kenneth Schalk earlier this year. Guitarist John Lamacchia has issued the following update:

"If you are not already aware, Ken Schalk has left the band. It's heart breaking I know, but he needed to explore new things. So Ken, we wish you all the best.

The new album, 'Kiss The Lie,' is now on hold because of the lack of a touring band. The label does not believe this record will sell enough copies without a touring band to justify a release. Therefore they are reluctant to release it. We are trying to come up with a marketing plan and a budget that will satisfy both the label and the needs of the record.

This is where we are at this point. As soon as we figure this out we will let all of you know. The new record is great and different and new and the artwork is beautiful so I personally can't wait for people to hear it. The line up for the record is as follows...

Carley Coma
John Lamacchia
Michael MacIvor
Ken Schalk
Eddie Ortiz

I am trying my best to keep this thing alive to get this new record out to you all."

Like Closingcross said it, you guys are incredible...I have only 37 of your songs and that's becouse here where I live (Montenegro, you've never heard of it I suppose) there's no CD shop which have your CD... Don't ask where I get these 37....Candiria is the best band in the world!!! The fact that Kenneth left the band, I am very sorry for that...I and few friends of mine know for you in my country which have 800 000 citizens... Just go on guys ...
