Death Campaign fire lead vocalist
July 26, 2003
This we recently received in the Hxc news room, below posted in its entirety:
An official statement from The Death Campaign,
Now, there have been a lot of rumors and accusations floating around
pertaining to what is presently happening with The Death Campaign. Yes it is true that Chad Wiggins is no longer with us. After months of prayer and
debate we have decided to ask him to step down from his position as lead
vocalist. This is the hardest thing we've had to do as a band thus far and
we want to make perfectly clear the fact that we did not do this out of any
malice and hope to see Chad prosper in everything he does. Our love for Chad will never die. Our former bass player Casey Wisenbaker will be stepping up as front man and we will be rerecording the vocals and making some changes to the album in the next few months. We will also be looking for someone to take over on bass. We are very excited to see what the future holds and we welcome you to join us in our next season. We greatly appreciate any and all concerns and we thank you for your thoughts and prayers.

Underoath loses vocalist
July 26, 2003
"Hello everyone. I know the rumors have been flying and the drama has been thickening so I think it's time to straighten everything out. I first would like to apologize for the last minute cancellation of our Warped Tour dates as well as the From Autumn to Ashes show in Birmingham, AL. We had some band situations that needed direct attention and resulted in us having to go home. As far as the rumors of us breaking up go, they are not true. However Dallas, our singer, will be leaving the band due to personal issues. That's really all that I am at liberty to say. We have heard everything from he got his girlfriend pregnant, to people punching other people in the band and those are all entirely not true. We all love one another and have went our seperate ways with the intention of remaining friends. If anyone has any questions or would like to dispell any rumors, feel free to email: firstname.lastname@example.org. We don't have a replacement as of now and future tour and recording postponements will be updated as they get worked out. Thank all of you for the support and prayers and look forward to seeing you on the road as soon as possible."
-Tim and Underoath
