Long story behind why not:

Naturally, since we're a 4-piece, we're not pulling off anything like CSIT without an additional guitarist. Josh, the guitarist of Draekon, was supposed to join us for the last two songs of the night (CSIT and Heaven and Hell) - but there were seriously just no fucking outlets on the other side of the stage where he needed to put his amp and pedalboard. We tried to rectify things but there was just no time (show had been running behind), so sadly we had to ditch it. I probably could have set up my harmonizer to make most of the parts work, but I would have had to totally improvise Dave's solo, and in general it just wouldn't have been right to me. It's a shame, I was really looking forward to doing it.

That's really awesome that LePond joined you guys on stage! Will definitely buy the album once I get a little more money :(
