Coal Chamber Addresses “Break Up Rumors”. 

Coal Chamber who reportedly cancelled a number of concert dates last month due to infighting between guitarist Meegs and vocalist Dez, which culminated in a onstage fight between the two, has issued a statement in an attempt to reassure fans that they are not breaking up. 

Some fans expressed anger at various online message boards over not only the tour cancellation but at the fact that the group has not apologized to fans for leaving them hanging. One fan going by the moniker Drunkfux posted to a message board, “What a class act. Aside from the fact that this is a great display of some of the worst grammatical skills ever witnessed in an "official" press release, you really have to dig how they make absolutely no apology to, nor mention of, their fans (assuming they actually have any) who were put out by this little soap opera.”  Below is the statement issued that Drunkfux was commenting on: 

"Los Angeles, CA - Coal Chamber have been tearing it up across the country on the Jagermeister Music tour for the past 6 weeks, proving to fansthat the intensity of their live show is as intense as the music on their albums. "Get out of my rowboat!" a line from Coal Chamber's upcoming album Dark Days (in stores May 7th), took on new meaning for the members of the band last week in Lubbock, TX. That night in Lubbock, TX on the Jagermeister Music Tour, a couple members of the band Coal Chamber had an on-stage scuffle that lead to the early departure of frontman Dez Fafara from the stage, forcing the remaining members to finish the rest of the set without a lead vocalist. The incident, which was fueled throughout the day due to several confrontations within the band, came to a head mid-way through Coal Chamber's set. "Dez and I are like brothers and sometimes we can get out of control, but in the end our love for the music and the band brings us back together," comments Miguel.

Coal Chamber was forced to cancel the remaining three dates on the Jagermeister tour as well as a few headline dates. "This is just a minor set back for the band." offers lead singer Dez. "We plan to pick things back up on May 7th at the Key Club by playing a show for our fans, then we are off to NY to appear on Carson Daly's show. We fight, we play - that's what we do." The band will continue on despite this incident. Several radio shows are scheduled for the month of May and a headline summer trek is in the planning. Be sure to tune your TV to Carson Daly's Last Call on May 15th to catch the band's first ever television appearance.

Closure For Corey
Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor recently completed recording 16 tracks for his upcoming solo project which he now tentatively plans to call Closure. The band also features Slipknot guitarist Jim Root within its ranks along with members of Taylor's former band Stone Sour and more. Mixing and mastering of the album are expected to take place shortly with a release sometime late this year / early next year being eyed. According to Corey the bands sound is "real melodic, it's more hard rock, but it's still heavy, by all means... It's really heavy. But at the same time it's nowhere near as heavy as Slipknot is. This is more of like Metallica meets Alice In Chains. It's really good stuff and I hope people dig it."
