Eric Victorino, lead singer, leaves Strata for other artistic endeavors. Read more in his own words:

following a very long period of careful consideration it is with a heavy heart but a newfound lightness in my soul, i’ve come to the conclusion that it’s time for me to leave strata and move on with other artistic endeavors.

as part of the band i got the opportunity to travel to multiple countries, play shows all over the place, meet great people and get to know the streets of so many cities from coast to coast… i am so grateful for everyone’s support and love and am indebted to you all for so much i could never repay, my only hope is that we’ll all look fondly back and smile. i am thankful to everyone who came to shows throughout the years, everyone who supported the band emotionally, personally and professionally. thank you for all of the magical moments and memories i will forever cherish.

i will continue to love and support my friends hrag, adrian and ryan in whatever it is they choose to do next, be it as a group or as individuals, musically or otherwise – we each look to the future with optimism and are in the highest of spirits.

i have watched friends of mine leave their respective bands and have seen these things take such ugly turns with rumors and rampant speculation, i’ve seen people stir up drama in what really should be looked at as a positive thing… so, i’m asking nicely of everyone involved, from fans and friends to business and family please let this be a time of growth and evolution, a celebration of the past eight years and anticipation of what’s to come.

thank you for listening.

Bassist Leaves Senses Fail

Comments Off on Bassist Leaves Senses Fail

Mike Glita, bassist for Senses Fail, has left the band. Here is the message update from the band:

Dear Loyal Fans,

We regret to inform you today that our bassist, Mike Glita, has decided to part ways with the band. There are no hard feelings involved with his decision; Mike simply wants to move on and pursue personal ventures and feats he has put on hold for the last 5 years. We all had a good talk about it and wish him nothing but the best.

Something Mike would like to say to the fans: “Thanks to everyone who supported the band and me through ‘thick and thin’ over the past 5 ? years. You’ll be missed greatly.”

As for the four of us (Buddy, Dan, Garrett, Heath), we will continue Senses Fail and see you all next year on tour. We began the writing process last week for our follow up to Still Searching and will keep everyone up to date with videos, photos and blogs!

Again, apologies go out to the loyal fans for the bad news, but we hope you support his decision as much as we do.

-Buddy, Dan, Garrett & Heath.

Last night Anthony & Anthony (A squared) rocked out to Evans|Blue, Framing Hanley, and No Resolve at The Machine Shop in Flint, MI. The night was opened by a local band, No Resolve, that showed so much maturity and potential for such a young group. The band has recorded a few tracks onto an EP, but Red Pill Music wasn’t able to get a copy of it at the concert, because they sold out last show! So in short, this is what we heard; No Resolve has some much involved in their music ranging from soothing melodies to explosive guitar riffs and vocals. Red Pill Music will update in the future with the progress of No Resolve. Take some Alice In Chains, Incubus, and Evans|Blue, stir it up and you have the sweet sound of No Resolve. Taste that!

Following No Resolve later in the evening was the Tennessee rockers, Framing Hanley. These guys definitely showed that their live show is just as powerful as their debut album “The Moment”.

Evans|Blue started playing around 11 p.m. and rocked a long, solid show. They played a mix of their two albums including all the singles. Also Evans|Blue played their epic movement, Painted. Meticulously pulled off, just amazing. Evans|Blue continued to play and play until nearly 1 a.m. and not a moment too soon! Overall, it was a solid rock show. Rock on! Here are some pictures:
