German death metal band Orphalis has posted the following message online about going on hiatus:
"There are kinda sad news on the Orphalis camp: We sadly have to tell you that Orphalis needs to take a little break at the moment - the reason is that Kai, our drummer has some personal and familiar problems, so he doesn't have the time for rehearsing/shows/studio and all that stuff.
"That doesn't mean that he will leave the band or breaks up completely, he just needs a break - we will also keep rehearsing with some midi drums to work on our material for the 2nd album which will be released on Amputated Vein Records.
"So we have to cancel all of this year's shows and we have to postpone the studio dates until next year - sorry for everyone who wanted to catch us live this year on the Show with Misery Index in Cologne, the Metal Frenzy Open Air, or on Berlin Deathfest We promise to keep you updated and we'll come back with the most heaviest stuff you can imagine!"

The new self-titled EP from grunge / post-hardcore band Wish is due out October 28th via 6131 Records. The label comments:
"As soon as 6131 Records heard Springfield, Missouri's Wish they immediately knew they wanted the band to join their roster. Fortunately for the label, this impressive new group agreed and planning quickly began for the release of their debut EP. Clocking in at just over 27 minutes, even calling this six-song collection an EP feels a bit unfair, but Wish manage to demonstrate a powerful grasp on songwriting. Their take on grungy post-hardcore sounds remarkably true to the '90s style, yet maintains a vibrant contemporary sensibility."
The "Wish" track listing is as follows:
1. Green World 05:18
2. Fade 03:20
3. Twenty Five 03:46
4. Hamptons 04:35
5. Whisper 03:24
6. Little Speck 06:25
