CIRCLE OF DEAD CHILDREN LOSE DRUMMER
[Tuesday, June 20, 2006]
CIRCLE OF DEAD CHILDREN have issued the following
"Mike Bartek [drums] is no longer a part of CODC
and for the indefinite time being we are forced into hiatus. We
apologize to the promoters and bands we have had shows booked with
as well as the fans, as we were about 3/4 of the way through the
next full-length release. There was absolutely no way around this.
"Mikehad a list of 'qualities' that would have had
him tossed from most bands, but friendship was what mostly kept him
with us. This time he crossed way over the line and defecated on
any concepts of friendship and respect possible and stooped lower
than we thought even he would ever go.
So he is gone and an ugly part of the CIRCLE's
past and, for anyone who has followed CODC through
the years, we are once again in the situation of finding a new
member. Joe, Jason and
Drew have decided to continue on and feel that
ultimately, Mike's departure will be a huge blessing in disguise
for CODC. After three drummers, three bass players
and three guitarists, the machine will hopefully continue on.
Plenty of skulls still need crushed.
"We will begin tryouts for a new drummer asap. If interested,
please contact CODC at
email@example.com We are located in the Pittsburgh,
