CANDIRIA: In Writing Mode

Brooklyn-based CANDIRIA have posted the following message on their official web site:

"Plans for fall touring are being worked out. In the meantime, now that the set is getting tighter with the latest lineup, it is time we started doing some writing.

"Remember: CANDIRIA has never put itself in any musical position as for what to expect out of itself for a forthcoming album.

"The main thing we're excited about is that two new guitarists will absolutely bring a new perspective on our vision as a writing entity. This could prove to be an incredible experience for all of us; another stage in the growth of CANDIRIA.

"We're aiming for next year as a release. With the exception of the three-year span with 'What Doesn't Kill You…' [2004], we've always been an album-every-two-years type of band so it only makes sense that 2006 would offer a new CANDIRIA album."

Back in April, CANDIRIA won a $29 million verdict for injuries they suffered when a truck hit their tour van.

CANDIRIA were hurt as they traveled to a gig in Cleveland on Sept. 9, 2002, when a tractor trailer owned by Paige Transportation Inc. hit them near Buffalo.

The crash sent their van rolling over five to seven times, and all the members received injuries. The band still performs, but two injured members left.

The aftermath of the crash is documented on the cover of the band's latest album, "What Doesn't Kill You…", with photos of the band's demolished van.

"What Doesn't Kill You..." was released in July 2004 through Type A Records.
