FLOTSAM AND JETSAM Singer: 'I Can't Put My Life On Hold Anymore'

April 21, 2005

FLOTSAM AND JETSAM singer Eric A.K. has posted the following message on the group's official message board:

"I still love FLOTSAM with all my being, but I can't put my life on hold anymore. So I will do as much as I can to keep us in your ears, eyes, and minds. FLOTSAM is still not paying ME anything, but as long as whoever is doing band business is making money, I guess I should lay down and take it. 25 years nothing has changed. Paying someone for making phone calls is stupid. Anyway, the band is not broken up. The new album is kick-ass, and you will hear from us soon. Live shows are really tough to pull off, unless they are in Phoenix. But I will try my best. Thanx for being true hardcore fans."

As previously reported, Crash Music, Inc. has set a July 26 release date for the new FLOTSAM AND JETSAM album, entitled "Dreams of Death". The CD was engineered by Tom Giatron and produced by FLOTSAM AND JETSAM and Tom Giatron at Genesis Studios in Phoenix. Travis Smith did the cover art.

FLOTSAM AND JETSAM was formed in Phoenix, Arizona in 1984 by bassist Jason Newsted, who eventually left the band to join METALLICA. The group currently consists of Eric A.K. (vocals),Craig Nielsen (drums),Jason Ward (bass),Mark Simpson (guitar) and Ed Carlson (guitar).
