Project Rogue-Titans“—the ambitious project that sought to pair members of System Of A Down, Lamb Of God, Napalm Death, Static-X and many more (see below) on a collaborative album—fell substantially short on its first crowdfunding run.

This time they are running a campaign for the album through Pledgemusic and have raised 13% of an unspecified goal thus far.

Capture The Crown have officially commented on the departure of guitarist Jye Menzies, guitarist/bassist Kris Sheehan and drummer Tyler March from their lineup. Read below for their replacements and the bands reasoning behind the shuffle:

“Hi guys!

Word is starting to get around that there have been changes made to Capture the Crown‘s lineup. This is true, but what is also true is that we are looking forward and moving ahead full force onto the next, bigger & better chapter of Capture The Crown.

Kris Sheehan, Jye Menzies & Tyler March are no longer a part of CTC and we wish them all the best in their future endeavours.

This band started touring in late 2012. Since the beginning not a single member has made a single cent. From day one, the band has been in copious amounts of debt. Factors contributing to the debt: the big one is relocating from Australia to the United States. Moving a touring band across the world is a very serious undertaking and a lot of money is used in the process, think of it as a start up investment.

Along with relocating, unfortunate luck with reoccurring vehicle issues on top of numerous other factors have not put us into a great place financially. With that said, not being paid or seeing any financial gains for almost 3 years is extremely rough! I would like to think that this is a HUGE contributor to the departure of these members.

Having said all of that, we are currently on the ‘Not Your American Idols Tour‘. There are some new faces and personalities in the family and in all honesty it has never been better. For now we’d like to officially welcome Maurice Morfaw on bass, Ryan Seretti on drums and Kyle Devaney on guitar. For second guitar, we currently have a close friend filling those shoes and we will be announcing them shortly.

Capture the Crown have started writing new material, we have some big announcements and a whole lot on the horizon. Capture the Crown are here to stay, it’s time to finally kick some ass!

Struc/tures will be going on an indefinite hiatus and have one last farewell tour planned. The bands ex-frontman Nick Xourafas will also be back with the outfit for that run. Joining them on that will be Obey The Brave, Exalt and Villains. The group said of the trek and their decision to step down:

“We are saddened to announce that Structures will be going on an indefinite hiatus come 2015. This is not an easy decision considering how much we have put into this band since it’s inception in 2009, however we all feel that a healthy break is necessary for each of us for various personal reasons. We are all on good terms and have made this decision collectively.

We want to thank all of our fans, new and old, for supporting the music we have made throughout the last few years. You are what allowed us to live out our dreams and for that we are forever grateful. To all of the bands we have toured with and the friendships that have been formed along the way, thank you for the unforgettable times on the road and the great shows that we’ve shared. Thank you to Sumerian Records for giving us a platform to release our music. Thanks to Outerloop Management, Good Fight, Pantheon, Avocado and The Agency Group for all your help through the years.

This tour will be a farewell tour of sorts, however, we are not fully closing the idea of picking things back up if and when the time is right. Who knows what tomorrow brings.

We’re also excited to have Nick joining us on these dates. It only makes sense that we finish off how we started. We will be playing songs from our entire catalogue.

Looking forward to playing some fun shows around home with Obey The Brave, our hometown friends in Exalt and Villains. See you at the dates below and thanks for your support, we love you all.”
