Silent Drive and Equal Vision part ways
Massachusetts rock outfit Silent Drive, featuring members of Bane, has finished writing a new album. The group must first secure a record label to release the effort however, as they have apparently parted ways with Equal Vision Records. Here's the official word from drummer Dave Joyal: "I'd say the new record is just about completed. All we need now is to record it. That would have happened already except we're still waiting on the recording budget. It looks like this next record will NOT be coming out on Equal Vision. I am sad to say that because all of us and EVR go back a long way and we love those dudes. But they just can't offer us what we need right now. It's a 100% mutual split with absolutely no hard feelings whatsoever. That said, we've been talking to a few other well known labels and are currently waiting for things to solidify. That type of shit doesn't happen over night. Our good friend and producer Bill Stevenson is also helping to pitch the record to other labels. We'll get a budget soon enough and be back in the studio as quick as we can."
