To everyone in the United Kingdom and Europe,

I recently posted that we were still coming overseas to do this tour. I guess I jumped the gun. Once Saosin pulled out of the tour a few of the promoters weren't to keen on having to pull the tickets in, refund them all, then issue new ones. That coupled with some of the shows having to change venues and us trying to find a new mode of transportation, the logistics of trying to pull all of this off in 3 weeks is nearly impossible.

It's unfair to the fans to have us show up and play some half assed shows that aren't done properly. We are NOT canceling the tour; we are just pushing it back to December. That way we can build a good package with great bands and have the tour be worth your money.

I know it's hard for everyone out there right now. The economy has everything twisted in knots. It's very hard to be in a band (Unless you're Metallica) and provide for a family at the same time. Believe me, all we want to do is come to your town and rock, and that is what we will do.

So in the mean time, instead of sitting around with our thumbs in our asses we have decided to make a new studio album. It's been over a year and a half since we recorded knives, we already have some killer new songs and feel it's time for a new adventure.

You all are amazing, thanks for the support.
william & Aiden

PS I wrote a special note to the fans in our new live dvd that comes out next week. Hope you all enjoy it!

Wow... well, if they're recording a new studio album, I guess that means no new William Control stuff =/
p.s. I'm being serious by the way.

So I guess that means Aiden won't be on the tour afterall...

I'm excited for a new record this year. One of the things I like about this band is that each consecutive album is different. You never know where they are going to go with the next one.

No but knowing it's out there is enough.

Like Bin Laden, I don't have to listen to him, but I know he's there.
