COAL CHAMBER'S MIGUEL "MEEGS" RASCON: "We Are Like Brothers" - Apr. 29, 2002
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Los Angeles, CA — Coal Chamber have been tearing it up across the country on the Jagermeister Music tour for the past 6 weeks, proving to fans that the intensity of their live show is as intense as the music on their albums. “Get out of my rowboat!” a line from Coal Chamber's upcoming album Dark Days (in stores May 7th), took on new meaning for the members of the band last week in Lubbock, TX.
That night in Lubbock, TX on the Jagermeister Music tour, a couple members of the band Coal Chamber had an on-stage scuffle that lead to the early departure of frontman Dez Fafara from the stage, forcing the remaining members to finish the rest of the set without a lead vocalist. The incident, which was fueled throughout the day due to several confrontations within the band, came to a head mid-way through Coal Chamber's set. “Dez and I are like brothers and sometimes we can get out of control, but in the end our love for the music and the band brings us back together,” comments Miguel.
Coal Chamber was forced to cancel the remaining three dates on the Jagermeister tour as well as a few headline dates. “This is just a minor set back for the band,” offers lead singer Dez. “We plan to pick things back up on May 7th at the Key Club by playing a show for our fans, then we are off to NY to appear on Carson Daly's show. We fight, we play…that's what we do.”
The band will continue on despite this incident. Several radio shows are scheduled for the month of May and a headline summer trek is in the planning. Be sure to tune your TV to Carson Daly's Last Call on May 15th to catch the band's first-ever television appearance.
