1. if you are a fan of this band- please donít pit us against each other. however you feel about patrick i feel it x a million. that was one of the things that led to us taking time off- we felt as though some of the base and media pit us against each other. were a team. we fight for the user.
2. Iíve had a few people in my timeline bugging out about me not sticking around after shows. last year i got a threat during a post show hang. i donít feel comfortable or safe sticking around areas...
I hoped that there would be more, but nothingís really taking shape so thatís why Iíve been focusing more on this. We looked for a singer for about a year and a half and we tried some people but nothing really clicked. I wouldnít say itís never going to happen, but Iíd say it will just take more time.
Being in this band for the past 12 years has been a true blessing. We've gotten to go places we never knew we would. We've been able to see and experience things we never imagined possible. We've shared the stage with people we admire, people we look up to, and best of all, our friends. And now, like all great things, it has come time for it to end. Thanks for all of your support, and for being part of the adventure.
Killer Mike has revealed that he is currently working with El-P for R.A.P. Music II, the follow up to 2012's excellent R.A.P. Music. He also says he has enlisted beat maker Harry Fraud to help out with production for I Pledge Allegiance To The Grind IV. Mike says both albums should be "finished and ready for 2014."
It's all finally happening!! Two years in the making! My new(ish) band, Super Happy Fun Club is releasing our sophomore record - "All Funned Up"!!! Needless to say I am extremely excited about it - it's the best pop rock record I've been a part of since Throwing the Game. Thematically/lyrically I was able to get out a lot of the emotional hardships I was carrying around from 2012. It was great being able to vent about Joe passing away and how hard my divorce was. I hope people are going to be able to listen to this album as a whole - relate to the conflict, pump their fists to the anthemic choruses...
