January 24th, 2015.


I just wanted to let everyone know that I will no longer a part of Silent
Horror. I apologize to everyone who supported me in this band. I’m sorry if I
let you down. I tried, if not for your sakes alone, to reconcile a way to remain
in the band, but unfortunately reached an impasse with the other members. I
won’t go into much great detail, but will offer those who have supported me at
least a fraction of the lengthy explanation I owe them. I was asked by Silent
Horror on at least two prior occasions to join their band as their singer. After
getting a promised commitment from them Upon their last request, I joined. We
were originally going to be a project that only released CDs and play very few
shows. It was agreed that we would go into the studio and I would re record
vocals for an album that they wrote with their old singer who quit years prior.
Half of the material of the CD I appear on was material that had already been
released in the form of an ep. The other half, the majority of the album was
material that was never actually released. We would do this album first, and in
th meantime continue to work on new songs for a new album together. Somewhere
along the way, things just shifted on their own into us becoming an actual
functioning band and we all went with it. That means, I went ahead and made us a
facebook page, set us up a store, linked it to a website domain that I purchased
for the band. The whole nine. Not long after the album release we got an offer
to do a tour of Europe this upcoming May. After weeks of consideration the band
agreed to do it. The tour began being booked soon after that. Recently, amidst
discussions around other disagreements the subject of European tour came up. I
was told by the other members of the band that they do not want to do the tour
and they did not to begin with. Since it was already being booked and nothing to
this effect had been brought up sooner we got into an argument. Later I was
contacted by the band and told that this band had never intended to play shows
and This was established in the beginning so that was enough reason to cancel
it. I was told that the only way the band would continue on Was as a band that
plays only a select few shows a year, and releases only music and merchandise
online. My terms were that I would agree to this only if we had the option to
tour Europe at least 6 weeks out of the year. A week went by with no
communication until I was called by the band telling me they had decided to get
a different singer and go on without me. In an effort to be professional I did
not argue but tried to be as civil as possible. The conversation ended with me
thinking that had been achieved. We had agreed that they would take the trip out
to my place to pick up their gear next week and at that point we would start
shutting down all of our networks, (facebook, Instagram, our online music
distribution site, and website) together. There were certain things in light of
being essentially ejected from the band that I felt I was owed. Nothing crazy or
outlandish. Just plain and simple ethics. In conversation these things were even
agreed upon as basic and doable. I woke up this morning to find out that I have
been deleted off of the facebook page I created and made the other members
admins of. I have been locked out of our digital album sale site with no way of
knowing what sales are coming in. I was locked out of PayPal so I couldn’t get
the 33% of the owed money leftover after taking my startup costs back earlier
last week. ive been locked out of our Instagram, Twitter, the store I created
has been deleted. Everything gone. I emailed the band asking what was going on
and later this evening I got a phone call from the band telling me it’s their
band, those are their things, and I have no claim to any of it. All of the
things we agreed to do collectively in an effort I thought to move on amicably
was revealed to be a total farce. All last week I had access like they did to
all of the above mentioned accounts I did not tell them I would work with them
professionally as possible for the fans sakes on this matter, turn around and
sneak into all of those accounts and do what was done to me while I was asleep
in bed last night. Basically I’ve been told that if I want to do anything about
it I’m free to consult a lawyer. I’m speechless guys. Many of you know me very
well. A lot of you reading this might not like me, but one thing you cannot say
about me is I am not professional. I Show everyone that shows me Respect and
dignity the same in return. I learned a lesson today about how hurtful and
dishonest people who claim to be your friends can be. I have given 17 years of
my life to this thing. This thing we call Horrorpunk I call my life. I feel
completely used and discarded. I came in, worked my ass off, did everything I
could to help this band succeed by giving it my contacts, my networks, my love
and my endorsement. Now that these are all in place there seems to be no more
need for me in Silent Horror. I Really do apologize for having to go so far as
to do this and make this post. It goes against everything I stand for. I’m the
type of person to just face adversity, accept problems and focus on my own work
and moving forward. Though I am still of that mindset I feel completely and
utterly betrayed. This isn’t a way for me to put people on sides. It’s just the
honest and simple truth and unfortunately it’s dirty. I have never once in my
life posted anything negative about anything, much less anyone ever on facebook.
Ever. I challenge anyone to prove me wrong. The fact that I am now is something
I want to serve as a testament to not only how much I love this genre, but also
each and every one of you who support me as an artist. I promise you guys, I
will move on and be bringing you new music soon. just please be aware of the
many dishonesties  you may support in your life. Thank you.


As we make our return home from our farewell tour we want to take the opportunity to thank everyone who was key and instrumental in it’s success.  Thanks to Tom at Weird World Booking, Dan at the Pantheon Agency, Chris Schaeffer, Stefan Loerchner, Marko Stockheim, Barb Dunkelmann,  JV Bastard, Andrew Stripes Winter, Jeff Frumess at Video Business Media, Stephen Nacy, Nomads of Prague, Willy B’s Tees, Ghouls Night Out Fest, Lufthansa Airlines for having awesome in flight programming, all of the clubs, promoters, and venues that accommodated us, our friends, families for their patience and support, and most of all the fans for making it a memorable event for all of us here in Blitzkid from day one to this our final moment.  It’s with a heavy emotion that we say goodnight, but with a light heart in which we deliver it unto you. These have been some of the best days of our lives that we close a chapter on and have nothing but positive feelings for even having been given them to begin with.  All we ask is that you will remember us, pass us on, and continue to validate our years by playing us loud over whatever mood you may find yourself in each day.  We’ve been Blitzkid,  and now you are though you always have been whether you knew it to be so or not.   Thank you, good night, and LONG LIVE THE HORROR!
