Candiria album delayed

Candiria continues to operate in a holding pattern following the departure of drummer Kenneth Schalk earlier this year. Guitarist John Lamacchia has issued the following update: "If you are not already aware, Ken Schalk has left the band. It's heart breaking I know, but he needed to explore new things. So Ken, we wish you all the best. The new album, 'Kiss The Lie,' is now on hold because of the lack of a touring band. The label does not believe this record will sell enough copies without a touring band to justify a release. Therefore they are reluctant to release it. We are trying to come up with a marketing plan and a budget that will satisfy both the label and the needs of the record. This is where we are at this point. As soon as we figure this out we will let all of you know. The new record is great and different and new and the artwork is beautiful so I personally can't wait for people to hear it. The line up for the record is as follows... Carley Coma John Lamacchia Michael MacIvor Ken Schalk Eddie Ortiz I am trying my best to keep this thing alive to get this new record out to you all."

One of the best bands ever, I sincerely hope this record is eventually released.

if schalk is no longer a part of this band, I highly doubt anything they release will be worth their time and effort; regardless I'll still listen.

make this happen candiria, make this happen

rick_tocchet 12/8/2006 3:21:27 AM

well LG records could sure use a nice veteran band on the label, so that would be nice. but will never happen. hopefully the new record is better then the last thing they put out.

rickrock 12/8/2006 7:42:27 AM

If Ken Schalk really did play on this album, I'll check it out. Don't really care for Carly's new style of singing, though.

I really hope this record comes out and it works out for them but i think its going to be real hard to find a replacement for Kenneth Schalk. Good luck to them anyways.

machines 12/8/2006 9:16:02 AM

this album better make it out... even with out ken...i know theyll find a good fill in... so as far as this new album goes.. their lables are being douche bags. why not just finish the damn album THEN we can see what happens.

chinkeechicken 12/8/2006 10:38:27 AM

EARTHpart2 12/8/2006 10:40:41 AM

so overrated. no one cares.

yourbrainsout 12/8/2006 10:57:44 AM

i can't imagine going to see this band live without ken behind the kit. i'll buy the record though.

BruceWayne 12/8/2006 11:15:24 AM

If this sounds anything like the last record, then I don't fcking want it.

ikillinmydreams 12/8/2006 1:18:56 PM

used to be my fav band ever. but it's time to hang up the gloves dudes

HallHammer 12/8/2006 1:49:59 PM

This band has millions of Dollars in the bank through no fault of their music

nachtfall 12/8/2006 2:44:10 PM

medical bills and rehabilitation for all those dudes probably still left them in debt...then add lawyer fees and everything else. they have no millions.

nachtfall 12/8/2006 2:46:44 PM

and the record is done, they put some songs up on their myspace page a few months ago, they were nothing like the last album.

CuntSnot 12/8/2006 4:29:47 PM

took the money and ran...

anonymous 12/8/2006 5:54:12 PM

Ken made this band. Give up

Florian 12/9/2006 6:26:16 AM
