Severed have issued the following update regarding the stepping down of their vocalist on their Myspace page:

"So here's the deal. We start by asking everyone to congratulate Anthony, who in the last year has become a full fledged adult. He has his business in order, having started his career and is happy about it-and very well should be - he deserves it. For this I am proud of my brother. I remember going to him in high school outside of math class with Justin and asking him "Yo dude, wanna be in our band?", pretty much cuz he was the one of the only other kids who was into metal...who knew? Since then we've hit up other states, played with a load of national acts, and put out a bitchin cd($10 - buy it fuckers!). But that's just the beginning; a way toooo long beginning, but hey, we're learning the hard way. With that said, we are ready to take over the world, and being on the same page of the "World Domination" book is vital. Our comrade Anthony isn't going to be able to partake in said activity, for his priorities take him down the
proverbial "other path" and we obviously would not dare ask him to reconsider otherwise. So Severed will have to continue this adventure without him."

"It sucks to be writing this, but we are now in the market for a singer. The guitarist situation is resolved, but we won't give away the details just yet. So, requirements are the same as with the guitar player search, except this is gonna be a bit tougher to achieve. As a vocalist you must also front the entire band and win over crowds both on and off stage. Most people see more of the singer during a show and you will have to make it memorable for the people watching...as well as for us. Hey, we want to have fun too. I can honestly say that as a frontman , its going to be a way tough try to replace Anthony; so to all those will give it a go, be ready to OVER fill some shoes."

"Now that I've taken up so much time, we are hoping to see many candidates hitting us up ASAP, and to the person who will end up with the job, don't take so long to hit us up!. Show Anthony some love, for he did a great job, and we can't thank him enough for how much he's helped this get to where it is. Thanks."

"-Jorge, Drums, SEVERED"

"Six years is a very long time. I've seen Severed start out as a band with a bunch of High School kids coming together to play Slayer, Fear Factory, and Soulfly covers in Jorge's living room, and turn into one of the biggest known NY heavy metal bands in recent history. This music game has many ups and downs and unfortunately I've always shared my passion for music with a passion for teaching. I'm deep into my teaching career at this point and have a great position in an awesome school that I simply cannot pull away from to tour for months on end. I've decided to keep my day job and accept the fact that my boys are ready to disappear and get signed like so many of the locals have been lately. There are many changes going on with Severed but be sure that I'll always be around and there to support my best friends do something that we all love to do. I will definitely be there helping Severed select the next front man. I'll be the cocky jerk and say that he has huge shoes to fill. I thank everyone throughout the years that I've had the honor to meet and hang out with through my affiliation with Severed. This is just a beginning for Jorge and Justin. Those dudes are awesome musicians and will be putting out the sickest metal album to come out since Reign in Blood. Just wait and see. (And you definitely know I'm doing a ton of guest vocals on that cd when it comes out!) I want everyone who supports Severed to continue showing that love and enjoy the music that we all have worked so hard to create for you – the fans."

"Thank you to the fans that I've had the honor to hear singing my lyrics back at me!
Thank you Jorge and Justin - my niggaz for life!"
