New Jersey-based metallers MUTINY WITHIN have parted ways with vocalist Chris Clancy and are currently seeking a replacement. Interested parties can contact the band at mutinyofficial@gmail.com.

Regarding Clancy's departure from MUTINY WITHIN, the remaining members of the group state, "[Chris] worked very hard in this band, but it was just something he could not continue and didn't want to continue. We wish him the best."

In a June 2011 online posting (which has since been removed), Clancy said about his decision to leave MUTINY WITHIN, "I find myself leaving a career that I strived over half of my life to accomplish. I gave up almost everything to live in a basement in another country and make music with my bandmates in search of a record deal. We did the impossible and got signed to Roadrunner Records. It was my childhood dream and I had everything I ever wanted. Or so I thought.

"My love for singing and performing soon started to diminish as time and time again we got screwed over by the industry in some way or another.

"I love being in a band because I love singing and I've just found that everything I'm doing is for the wrong reasons. There's no passion or drive to wake up in the morning and make music with the guys, so I'm not going to do that anymore. Maybe a new venture will come my way and it will restart the fire that I once had.

"We live in an age where labels don't just take money from music sales, but from almost every form of a band's income. This isn't the labels' fault. They front money to let the bands make their music and put it out. They're businesses and want to make a profit. But what happens when a band is given money to record an album, puts it out, and then doesn't sell enough records…? They are evaluated and either dropped or given a second chance with a strict budget… We were dropped. We didn't even hit 10,000 legal album sales in the USA. Yet looking at torrent sites around the Internet, you can easily find 60,000+ illegal downloads. Our music was stolen, the label didn't make enough money, and now there will be no more music.

"Why am I saying this? Because this happens to so many other bands and they stay quiet about it.

"After four years of working almost every day with the band, the reality is I've earned $100 in all that time. I simply cannot afford to continue on. Visa costs, living costs…

"People seem to think I'm rich because I'm a musician, but many of you will know the reality of the industry."

Ever since they left Roadrunner shit has been going downhill. It's a shame, I liked this band.

Old news, but the interview is new.

THe drummer is gone, they got dropped by Roadrunner for canceling all of their 2010 touring plans, the keyboardist quits, then the singer. All that's left is the stings.

They were the biggest rising then falling star of 2010.

Slopoke news is slopoke.

And srsly, don't sign to Roadrunner if you're a new band. It's their own fault.

Yeah, really awful band. The worst I've heard last year. Glad I stopped seeing them getting added to every single tour.

I'll be honest here. I downloaded this album. I listened to it barely once all the way through. I disliked it entirely, and never listened to it again. I wasn't too impressed with the band besides their one single.

Should I be forced to pay 13$+ for that experience? I honestly don't think so.
