The Crimson Armada have dropped off The Chariot, Vanna, Former Thieves and Listener‘s ongoing tour as a result of a family emergency. The band offered the following on the matter:

“We regret to inform everyone that due to a family emergency within a member of the TCA family. We will no longer be apart of the Vanna/The Chariot tour.

P.O.D. Post New Studio Footage

P.O.D. have posted some studio footage of their bassist Traa Daniels tracking a new song reportedly titled “On Fire” below. The group are currently in the studio recording their new album with producer Howard Benson (3 Doors Down, My Chemical Romance). A release through Razor & Tie early next year is expected.

The Banner will enter Stained Glass Studios in January to record their new EP “Born To Ruin: The Way Is Shut“. Producer Jeremy Comitas will oversee the sessions with a U.S. release planned through Melotov Recs and a UK/European release planned through Thirty Days Of Night Records. The outing is expected to be the first entry in a series of new EP’s from the band.

On top of that, the band will soon begin re-pressing their older efforts on vinyl with 2005’s “Each Breath Haunted” set to receive the treatment first. It will surface in the coming months as a picture disc with new artwork and bonus tracks via Melotov.

The Dillinger Escape Plan frontman has been fielding questions through his official website, Gregpuciato.com. A recent answer in the link above has shed some light on the lyrical inspiration behind the bands track “Sunshine The Werewolf“, which as Puciato confirms, is about bugchasing.

An excerpt from his post can be found below:

“…When the song was written, the lyrics were originally actually inspired by an article that Brian Montuori, the artist responsible for the “Miss Machine” artwork, had sent me. It was a perverse and disgusting article about a strange and extreme subculture of people who would deliberately “give” and “receive” HIV in order to romantically share an eventually fatal disease(queen sized coffin built for two).

The lyrics were fiction, and written from the perspective of the “giver”, who then turned out to have tricked the smitten “receiver” into thinking their love was forever before instead moving on to someone else(there’ll be another just like you…you’re not the only one, etc), sadistically leaving the receiver feeling tricked and scorned…the receiver eventually repeating the cycle as a giver.

HIV vampires basically. A metaphor for people passing abuse forward in relationships…”

Bugchasing on theprp, yet another milestone hit!
