Oceano Members Involved In Van Accident
January 19, 2009
Oceano guitarist Andrew Mikhail and bassist Jason Jones were involved in a van accident over the weekend. Both members luckily limped out of the accident with minor injuries, however their van and the trailer that was attached to it had flipped and is need of repair. With no means of transport for the band and their gear, Oceano was forced to cancel their dates with xLiferuinerx and Through the Fire.

The band made a post on their MySpace blog about the situation:

"Today Oceano has suffered a major loss, guitarist Andrew Mikhail and bassist Jason Jones were in a terrible accident this morning while picking up the band's new van and trailer from Belvidere, IL. Nearly 10 minutes of completing sale they were headed back home to pick up the rest of the band, and get back on the "Sinner's Reward" tour in due time. Unexpectedly the van flipped into a ditch on the side of highway. As Andrew was driving along with the empty trailer attached, it was hit with a hard wind thus pushing the trailer out of alignment with the van. While trying to maintain and keep the van steady from merging into other lanes of traffic, the van spun out of control, hit a patch of ice, and flipped out of traffic and into the ground. Considering the urgency of trying to find transportation in due time (with mix-ups with money transfers, etc.) in order to get the van and get back on tour, the van was not "road ready" JUST YET (aka new tires, etc.) which made this week to be one hell of a week for us. Thankfully, they limped out of the accident fine (SORRY LAMBGOATERS) due to people being "good citizens" and helping them out of the van.

We have cancelled our appearances on the "Sinner's Reward" tour with xLiferuinerx and Through the Fire and HOPE to be back on the road in time for the TPTD/Catalepsy tour on 1/28. We'd like to apologize in advance for any inconvenience to anyone who wanted to come out and rock out with us on the SRT. We'll be hitting the same areas on the TPTD tour, so hopefully we'll see you there!

As some of you may know, towing a vehicle (let alone, TWO NEWLY purchased ones) can be pretty damaging to the pocket. Not to mention, to add insult to injury, fines and repairs for the accident to pile on top. We'd like to ask you guys for your help in this time of need, if anyone can paypal ANYTHING to us to help out in the "relief" of this situation, it would be GREATLY appreciated. Donations can be sent via Paypal to xlunarxabyssx@yahoo.com. Please help us in our time of need! Much thanks, much love, much respect, and dont forget to wear your seatbelts
see you guys soon!"

Oceano Part Ways With Guitarist, Will Carry On As Four Piece
January 8, 2009
Chicago deathcore upstarts, Oceano, have parted ways with founding member and guitarist, Jeremy Caroll and plan to continue on with their upcoming tours as a 4-piece act. Vocalist Adam Warren released this statement on the matter:

"Within our past few tours tension had seemingly grew above that of a typical level for a band touring the country cramped in a van. Over the past months certain members of the band we're begining to really 'butt heads' and clash with Jeremy on a personality level, to a point where tour was almost becoming more of a burden to deal with the stress levels and having to diffuse each others frustrations from this. Things apparantly increased to the point of taking such action. Atop that, it was felt that coming from a professional level he did not represent the band well at times when it counted most.

"There has been so much pented up frustration between parties of this band over this situation that at one point, we we're almost on the verge of a few members leaving the band completely if the situation wasn't fixed. Watching the complexity of the situation unfold, we were essentially put in a very shitty situation; Either allow the majority of members leave because of their frustration, and subsequently, there be no more Oceano OR lose ONE member, thus kicking out the one who kept this band alive for so long, yet who was the one most people in the band were dissatisfied with.

"We clearly couldn't have the MAJORITY of this band disappear and essentially the band die with a full-length out in 2 months and 2 tours all set to go, so obviously in the end we made the hard decision of parting ways with Jeremy. Hopefully many of you can see and understand we had a really fucked up situation on our hands either way it was handled.

"We are BEYOND tired of 'lineup changes' and through it all we've fought to make sure this band continues on, and that we will continue to have the opportunity to tour and play our music for all of you, as so did Jeremy, but for what was felt to be the better decision to do so, we had to part ways with the only 'original' member left of this band.

"Rumors, Shit talk from 'friends,' and everything else aside though, we have nothing against him for what has transpired and the choice we did make was not done out of anger or agression towards him, but merely in the best interest of keeping this band and its core lineup in-tact. Hopefully there is at least an understanding in that.

"With that said, for the time being we shall continue on as a 4-peice and we shall not be slowing down Whatsoever. Our only minor misstep is that being our search to purchase a new van and trailer. But that should be figured out shortly and we shall be ready and on the road for our next tour's with Liferuiner and Through the Fire (Jan/Feb) and then our tour with Too Pure To Die and Catalepsy (Jan/feb).

"Thanks for taking and/or wasting your time reading this, and see you on the road soon."

Iniquity-the absence of all moral values/religion.

Hailing from the motherland of death metal, Florida's Catalepsy is a 6-piece hardcore-influenced death metal band for fans of Suicide Silence, Ion Dissonance, and Whitechapel.

Recorded at Erik Rutan's MANA STUDIOS in St. Petersburg, Florida, Catalepsy's crushing debut album "Iniquity" is a devastating mix of fast-paced death metal and pummeling breakdowns laced together with bold, no holds barred lyrics.

In a world full of false hope, lies and disgust, "Iniquity" serves as an eerie reminder that the world is shit.
