SOILENT GREEN To Release New Album In Early 2005

SOILENT GREEN have issued the following update:

"First off, we would like to thank everyone that came out on Friday, June 18th for the benefit show in support of the late Scott Williams. Former SOILENT GREEN bassist Scott Williams (a.k.a. James Scott Williams) was killed Monday, April 26, 2004, in an apparent murder-suicide. We would rather not get into the details and send our condolences out to his family and friends. Scott Williams played with SOILENT GREEN for over 10 years and will be missed by many people. He was an excellent and loved individual as well as an incredible musician. May his words and music live on through SOILENT GREEN, his family and his friends.

"The benefit show was a huge success and raised $2900 to help his family pay for funeral costs. These costs are very high and this only covers a quarter of them so if you would like to send any donations feel free to assist.

"Any donations to the family of Scott Williams will be accepted and appreciated for funeral costs. You can send well-concealed cash or a money order made payable to Kim Webb (Scott's sister) to:

SG Scott Williams Fund
P.O. Box 5991
Metairie, LA 70009-5991
USA

"We know the big question is, 'When are we putting out a new record?' All material is in solid and we are sorting out studio time and getting all the artwork into place. All information will be posted on www.soilentgreen.net when we have everything for you. It will see an early 2005 release date through Relapse Records. Album title, song listing and artwork will be released by the end of the year."
