"Special thanks to the fans that attended OwenFest in Germany and Elements of Rock in Switzerland. We had a great time and appreciate your enthusiastic support.
"The live DVD [which was supposed to be filmed at the Owen show] has been postponed to a later date. We are now working on a South American tour for November of 2006. In the meantime we will be writing new songs and planning our next album.
"Thank you for your patience these past few months as we finally get back to monthly news updates, vocal tips and tour dates. Please check back each month for new information."
