A Skylit Drive have revealed their official statement on the situation, as well as announced an acoustic album, exclusively on AltPress.

ORIGINAL POST: October 22, at 11:37 a.m. EDT 

According to a post from bassist Brian White's personal Instagram account, he along with drummer Cory La Quay have left A Skylit Drive. While an official statement was initially posted on the band's Facebook page, it has since been taken down and replaced with this message:

"Fans & friends, earlier today an announcement was made public without the consent of everyone involved. We promise ALL of your questions and concerns will be answered tomorrow."

Along with commenting on the member change, the band have announced a new acoustic album, "Rise: Ascension", which will be released January 6, 2015 with a new single, pre-orders coming soon! A Skylit Drive also revealed that they will release their next full-length album in the summer of 2015. They went on to say the following about the new releases and included a video as well.

"Before anything else we'd like to apologize for the manner in which yesterday's abrupt & unplanned announcement of Cory and Brian's departure from A Skylit Drive was. We had known for quite some time that both members were becoming increasingly less happy in the band. Both for their own reasons. We knew their time in ASD was coming to an end. Some of the separation was even mutual, but for you, the fans, ASD as a whole should have been able to create an announcement together regarding the separation. You all deserve NO less than that. We don't want our fans, the lifeline of our passion, to be left wondering. Respectfully, below our statement [here] you will find Cory & Brian's.
As for the future of ASD, We will continue on. ASD is about more than one or two people. It's about the music & the fans. Where the music comes from is safely intact. That we can promise you. As for our fans, there are none better, and we know you'll be right there by our sides till the end. Knowing that, we have all we need to carry on.
In the spirit of moving forward and sticking to our word of a big announcement coming, we have a couple of things in store. First things first, we will be releasing a full length acoustic album in January of 2015. For the album we have recreated our most recent record "RISE" in its entirety in FULL acoustic. The album will be called "RISE: ASCENSION". Please check out the announcement video for full details & pre order specials. Second, we have already begun writing for a new record set to release in the Summer of 2015! Lastly, expect to see us back on the road in early 2015. We can't be stopped!
To be honest, we couldn't feel better about where we're at. There is no doubt within us. We are stronger and more determined than ever before. At the end of the day all we have is our music, and all we want to do is share it with the world. We are beyond excited to continue this journey, and we hope you're ready for the ride!"

Tyson Curtis Stevens, the frontman of now-defunct post-hardcore outfit Scary Kids Scaring Kids and consequent outfit Coma Prevail, has been found dead at the age of 29.

Alternative Press originally broke the news, citing anonymous sources who told the outlet Stevens' body had been found by his girlfriend, Sabrina Amber, on Tuesday morning (US time). This has now been confirmed in light of her heartfelt in-memoriam post to Stevens' Facebook wall today (AEST) — the first official verification of the singer's passing following a growing response on social media to AP's original news from fans, friends and peers.

Stevens' new band, Coma Prevail, have also confirmed the news on Facebook, saying simply, "Unfortunately the rumours are true," and indicating further details would follow once the family has had sufficient time to grieve.

There are no details yet as to the circumstances surrounding Stevens' death, other than that he appears to have passed in his sleep. The singer had celebrated his 29th birthday on September 29.

Monster High has made it's Japanese debut with it's anime styled webisodes each one being about 3 minutes long. The first episode called "Scary Monster High" showcases the main ghouls of the school; Frankie Stein, Draculaura, Lagoona Blue, Ghoulia Yelps, and Clawdeen Wolf, except it delivers a truer liking to the monsters they really are from the webisode within.

If your wondering what the characters are saying and what this webisode was all about here's a rundown of it, Draculaura goes to her her friends all excited because she found out there’s a new student at the school, a girl named Frankie. Clawdeen tries to point out the new girl is right behind her, miming her moves for some reason. Draculaura doesn't listen. Clawdeen then asks what Lagoona is doing and she replies she’s moisturizing her skin.

Draculaura tries to hurry them so they could go find Frankie, who’s still behind her, following her around. Then Draculaura turns and finally notices Frankie. The ghouls find out the reason Frankie keeps miming Draculaura is a strand from her stitches is wrapped around Draculaura’s wrist.

Clawdeen is suddenly alerted by Lagoona and Ghoulia that the full moon is out and she runs off. This leads to Draculaura explaining to Frankie that Clawdeen is a werewolf and Sir Hoots-A-Lot tells her Ghoulia (who has fallen on the ground) is a zombie. Draculaura continues that Lagoona (who is now in a bathtub filled with moisturizing cream) is an exchange student.

Frankie says since she’s only 15 days old she doesn't know anything about this kind of things. The crowd is surprised and Draculaura decides they should be friends. Frankie asks what friends are.

Clawdeen returns and the ghouls each make a statement that leads to Draculaura walking up to the window and declaring to the world that they shall be friends. She then catches on fire (because the sun is suddenly out?) and Frankie is no longer attached to her by the strand.

After the actual episode ends Draculaura introduces herself as the daughter of Dracula and tells us she likes pink.

Check it out below.

BATTLECROSS will be heading back out on the road next month for more than two dozen headlining dates through North America. Dubbed the Winter Warriors tour, the trek will kick off on November 26th in Grand Rapids, Michigan and conclude on December 30th in Worcester, Massachusetts. Support will come from Wretched and War Of Ages.

In honor of the US Armed Forces, this Veterans Day BATTLECROSS will make a limited number of tickets available to VET TIX so that local members of the military may attend a show in their city at no cost. The band will also be donating a portion of the funds generated from sales of a limited edition tour shirt to a local veteran's charity, and choose a veteran in each market for a VIP experience. On Veteran's Day (November 11th) fans can nominate a friend or family member who has served our country and share their story and photo, with a member of the military being chosen to win a guitar and more at the end of the tour. On the same day, the band will also bring back merchandise from their first Metal Blade album, Pursuit Of Honor, in their official merch store HERE, with a portion of the proceeds being set aside to benefit the Wounded Warriors Project, a veterans service organization that offers a variety of programs, services and events to wounded veterans of the military following the events of September 11th, 2001.

To learn more about honoring a veteran through the tour or to help underwrite tickets for veterans, click HERE. Members of the military can inquire about free admission to the tour at

Guitarist Hiran Deraniyagala adds: "We won't let a cancelled tour stop BATTLECROSS from performing for our fans and the Winter Warriors Tour with Wretched and War Of Ages is the perfect way to remind our fans that you keep moving forward when challenges come up in life. Who knows perseverance more than those who bravely serve our country and we are honored to dedicate this tour to them. We are a band that stands for ideals such as loyalty, honor, sacrifice and perseverance through our lyrics and how we conduct ourselves, and hope the tour will be a fitting tribute to every service member who attends. We look forward to raging with our fans who serve or have served in the US Armed Forces and thank them again for their service."
