Miami, Florida's biggest metalcore act Poison the Well have announced via myspace that they, as a band, have decided to go on an indefinite hiatus.
The band commented by saying: "So, after twelve years of being a band, countless tours around the world and records being released, we have made the decision to take some time to explore other interests in our lives. We’ve all reached a point where we feel like we need to take a step back from the band and pursue other things. [Poison the Well] has been an all encompassing, full time thing for such a long period that this isn’t an easy thing to do. We want to thank everyone who has supported us in anyway, whether it be buying a record or a shirt, to the occasional robbery from time to time. Once again, thanks for everything and we couldn’t have done any of this without you."
A Day To Remember has premiered the video for the band's new single “Have Faith In Me” on MTV2. The video clip can be viewed below. Directed by Mark Staubach, “Have Faith In Me” is the third video from A Day To Remember’s latest album, "Homesick," which debuted at #21 on the Top 200 Billboard Charts.
All Shall Perish’s new guitarist Francesco Artusato has completed work on his new, all instrumental solo endeavor entitled "Chaos and The Primordial." Artusato has launched a new MySpace page to promote this solo release, which features several samples from the new album.
Artusato checks in with the following comments: "I just got back from my first tour with All Shall Perish playing four great shows as direct support for the legendary Danzig. It was such an amazing and mind blowing experience! We will be back on the road starting this weekend for the Summer Slaughter North American tour and will then head out to Europe after that. It’s going to be great.
"This is also an exciting moment for me because my first solo record Chaos and the Primordial is finally finished. It’s 10 tracks of all instrumental music that explore the rock/metal language in singular ways. I’m very proud of the final product. It sounds the way I envisioned it thanks to Ben Cohen, who mixed and mastered it at Sky Blue Studios. It took a lot of patience and attention due to the crazy amount of recorded guitar tracks (doubles, harmonies and different layers and textures). Some of the songs have more 25 guitar tracks each! This disc is the result of the experiences, studies, thoughts and musical moments that shaped my sound and vision throughout these years.
"The first sample is taken from the1st track titled ‘Chaos and the Primordial.’ Overall, it’s a very technical and intense song that has a progressive vibe with some very open and lyrical parts mixed with very powerful moments of intensity and complexity. More...

Vocalist Kasper Thomsen also commented on the album:
"This is by far the most experimental, the most challenging, and the most interesting album we have come up with since the beginning of the band. My personal take on this endeavor is quite simple actually: This album will be on the hot list when it comes out!
"Every member of the band has had the freedom to take things to the limits, above and beyond, and believe me, boundaries are transparent this time around, we’re going totally apeshit, and you’re definitely in for some big surprises with some cool guest performances by our friends in DUNÉ on the song 'Big Truth' among other exciting things."

This is where we could spew a bunch of crazy numbers at you...you know the 2.3 million tickets sold, 300 million miles traveled, 3,000 pounds of bacon consumed 'shtick,' but you don't care about that stuff and frankly neither do we. What we DO care about is letting you know the immense gratitude we feel for all of your love and support over these past two and half years.

Australia's Be'lakor has issued the following comments about canceling several of their upcoming European shows:
"As many people have noticed over the past few days, we have unfortunately been dropped from the 'Assault of the Carnivores Tour 2010' in Baroeg, Holland - due to the apparent difficulties of organizing shows around August. This has been especially bad news for Be'lakor, as the Baroeg show was part of a series of up to 10 shows that were being organized through an agent of a prominent American death metal band for the remainder of our European tour.
"We are now faced with the extremely disappointing situation of having had nearly all of our tour pulled from beneath us (with the exception of Summer Breeze). None of this has been within our control and, given how close we are to August, has left us with the very difficult task of trying to find replacement shows.
"As we are sure that any fellow travellers will appreciate, the costs of travelling from Australia to Europe - especially for a small band like ours - are considerable. For this reason, it is essential to us that we make the most of this opportunity and play as many shows as possible. Needless to say, we are very unhappy with how things have worked out. More...
