SEVENDUST Song Linked To Case Of Missing Little Girl CAYLEE ANTHONY

Florida TV station WFTV-Channel 9 reported yesterday that SEVENDUST's song "The Past" was played repeatedly by Casey Anthony — who has been charged with first-degree murder in the disappearance of her daughter, Caylee — while she was out on bond. The SEVENDUST track carries this lyric: "Beneath the water that's falling from my eyes, Lays a soul I've left behind." The song was also apparently a topic of discussion on "Nancy Grace", a nightly current affairs show on CNN's Headline News hosted by Nancy Ann Grace, an American legal commentator, television host, and former prosecutor.

SEVENDUST has issued the following statement regarding the matter:

"After hearing the news that our song 'The Past' was a topic of discussion on the Nancy Grace show yesterday, we would like to elaborate. The song was written as a song of hope. A song with positive message. To look back on your life and reflect and to feel good about getting through the rough times that everyone goes through, the roller coaster of life, so to speak.

"We regret that we've been linked to the horrible subject involving the disappearance of little Caylee Anthony. Most of us have children and have been saddened by the story from the beginning.

"We pray for the safe return of this beautiful young child and wish her family strength."
