Our hearts go out to his family, friends and fans.

Lorne was a huge part of the first incarnation of GREAT WHITE! May he rest in peace.”

Added GREAT WHITE guitarist Mark Kendall: “I saw [Lorne‘s] cousin Robert a few months ago and we were in touch. Robert told me Lorne wasn’t too good then.

“I lost Robert‘s number when I changed phones, which bums me out. He used to work for us.

“I loved Lorne and I am truly sad to get this news. I know he has battle demons for along time and I am so sad to hear of his passing.

“RIP, my friend…”

Dreamstate Emergency has released a new LP titled “Oneirophobia.” The album is comprised of nine original tracks for a running total of half an hour. Tracks are now available for streaming at the band’s website here , and the following press release was also issued about the album: “A brutal, shocking, stabbing record with all the ferocity and viciousness that speed and death metal have been aiming to achieve for more than thirty years, ‘Oneirophobia’ is all that is horrifyingly wrong with the world, wrapped up in a set list that will chill bones, grip hearts, and strip the paint off of household appliances at appropriately high volumes. “This being roundly and explicitly understood, ‘Oneirophobia’ is a work of great artistic integrity, vivid color, and genius-level composition.

Hevy Fest have posted the following announcement:

“It is with heavy hearts that we announce the cancellation of this year’s festival.

Despite our best efforts to continue without the camping set-up, the change of venue has been more problematic than anticipated. It is time to draw a line under 2013, and look to the future to make sure next year’s festival is everything Hevy should be.

This has been a turbulent year for us, and we are very sorry to have let our audience down.”

Hevy had moved venues to a one-day festival at Brixton Academy headlined by Killswitch Engage, and it remains to be seen if the bands announced will announce any replacement shows. We’re gutted at this and hope that the Hevy guys return bigger and stronger next year. Boooo! 🙁
