Earth Crisis Comments On Walter Edmund Bond's Arrest On Charges Of Burning Down A Building
Vegan, straight-edge band Earth Crsis wrote the song "To Ashes" about Walter Edmund Bond, who has now been arrested and charged with burning down a sheepskin factory. Guitarist Scott Crouse further has commented on the situation:
"Recently Walter, the man whose actions inspired our song ‘To Ashes,’ has been arrested on alleged arson charges. Our motivation behind writing the song ‘To Ashes’ was to show the passion and frustration of a man who reached his boiling point. The extremes that Walter went to save his brother’s life we find inspiring, mainly because they were acts of property destruction against his adversaries, not acts of violence. We wanted to simply document what many in the straight edge community already deemed as a heroic and selfless action. Regarding Walters current arrest, we don't have much to say since right now they are merely accusations until he is proven guilty.
"We were also beyond disappointed that we didn't get a chance to play last Sunday at The Sound and Fury Festival. It was a weekend of canceled flights, wondering if all the members would even make it out here and three trips to LAX. Hey, at least we can all say we saw a motorcycle in the pit right?
"So far we have about four new songs written and are hoping to start working on vocals this fall. The plan is to have 10 new songs and re-record a few older songs that are live set staples. We are hoping to start recording in January 2011 with an as of yet undetermined producer."
