Arms Of The Sun Comments On Split With Bassist Rex Brown

Bassist Rex Brown (Down) recently announced his departure from the new project Arms of the Sun. Vocalist Lance Harvill has now issued the following statement about Rex's departure:

"We have had a situation where we could never see eye to eye concerning the business and creative sides of the band. I love Rex as a friend but if I say it's red he sees it as blue. It doesn't make either of us right or wrong but the songs were written long before Rex ever joined this band, so not getting to make executive decisions over certain creative aspects of the band created a problem for me.

"It's understandable, you have the rockstar in the band who has earned his stripes and carries the attitude to go with it, and you have me as the maniacal writer, who can pretty much go with the flow about many things, but when it comes to the art and how it is made and sold I feel I should have somewhat of a say. We get along great as friends, but like I said before, we share two separate visions for where a band should go. Much love to him, his beautiful family, and his music endeavors."

Lance -Stay true to who you are always...even in music!! You know where you came from and how it took you to get here...I'm glad you are staying in control of your own destiny. Examples of yourself make younger generations stronger in the world of music and life. This ex FC'er is proud of you. ;-)

Lance,
I liked Rex's bass playing in your band and you are right. It showed a different side of him. But I have fallowed your music and you are the one who came up with the melodies and songs. I knew you had it when I seen you at first in Cactus Jaw. Always stay on your course. Do what you do best and people will buy into it.
You are one of my favorite artists because you have good catchy songs. Good luck to Rex also in Down.

Rock On!
