Singer ERIK ROGERS Apologizes For Offending STEREOMUD Fans And Former Members

Vocalist Erik Rogers has released the following statement regarding his decision to abandon plans to utilize the STEREOMUD moniker for his new project with guitarist Billy Grey (ex-FOZZY, SICK SPEED) and drummer Rodney Beaubouef (ex-STUCK MOJO):

"A lot has come up over the last few weeks, and as a result of it we will be moving forward as DANGEROUS NEW MACHINE.

"The idea of coming back out as STEREOMUD was never meant to offend the STEREOMUD fans or the former members, but it has, and for that I'm sorry!! Now it's all about NEW MUSIC.

"Thank you, to ALL of you who have supported me over the years, and THANK YOU for your continued support.

"This is our journey, and we are honored to have you along for the ride...

"I wish everyone I've ever had the pleasure of playing with all the luck in the world on their new ventures and who knows?! Maybe we will all hit the same stage again some day."

DANGEROUS NEW MACHINE, whose lineup is completed by bassist Jake Kitchens, has posted a brand new track entitled "Burn" on the band's MySpace page.
