PLACE OF SKULLS May Not Be Dead After All

March 10, 2005

PLACE OF SKULLS guitarist Victor Griffin (ex-PENTAGRAM) has posted the following message on the group's official forum:

"So there's some understandable confusion about what's goin' on. Did you disband or not?

"Well, it's definitely an awkward situation. As I tried to explain in my last journal posting, after everything was said and done and certain issues were addressed, it seemed to breathe new life into PLACE OF SKULLS. Unfortunately after plans were already made around the initial decision to break up. Such as Dennis moving back to Oklahoma…which at the time was just this side of impossible to reverse. So that's all a done deal.

"In light of the newfound energy and the considerable number of people that came from all over in respect to our last show, let me reiterate how awkward this is.

"So in the best interest of our immediate musical futures, PLACE OF SKULLS will remain alive but in no certain terms. That basically means that we've talked extensively and agree. But now there are factors involved that weren't there before. Such as Dennis' location and a few other minor issues.

"First concern is finding a new record label for support and getting all the new material recorded. These things I'm concentrating on daily and don't doubt will happen. Patience and persistence is key right now.

"But I want to express our appreciation again to the people who came to the 'final show.' I hope there are no negative feelings concerning this. Just know that your tremendous support on that night and the encouraging emails and messages we've gotten before and since were a major part of the decision to continue. We hope you understand. Of course, it'll probably be a while before we’re completely functional again.

"I don't have a clue why it had to happen this way other than it being part of a bigger plan. Take it how you wish but I believe things happen for a reason. I guess there are potential lessons in just about everything."
