"This DVD has been 8 years in the making. We didn't want to cheat the fans by putting out a standard live DVD.

This DVD shows everything from life backstage on the bus to some of the first shows in our hometown. We didn't leave anything off that fans have been asking about for all these years. Unlike cookie-cutter concert DVD's this is a documentary you can watch again and again for years to come."
Despite a posting on The Autumn Offering's official website www.theautumnoffering.com yesterday which listed their new vocalist Matt McChesney as having left his other group Hell Within to join the band, it appears that is not the case. In a statement released today, Hell Within had the following to say:
"To set the record straight Matt McChesney is not leaving Hell Within. Matt is helping The Autumn Offering out in a bad situation. He is only recording an album for the The Autumn Offering. They have no singer and they need to get a record done. It was wrong of them to post "formerly of Hell Within"; he is not formerly of Hell Within, Matt is in Hell Within. Hell Within is Matt's main band and The Autumn Offering is a side project. Hell Within will be touring with Matt on an East Coast run that is shaping up for August in support of their new record "Shadows Of Vanity". Hell Within is not looking for another vocalist. Hell Within with Matt as the lead man will see you soon."
