Help She Can’t Swim have split up. Here’s their MySpace blog about it: "We are sad to announce that Help She Can’t Swim are no more. Some of you may have noticed we have been inactive for a little while now and we have decided not to continue with the band. There are a lot of things that the four of us need to do personally that being in the band does not allow. We have had an amazing time being in HSCS; we got to release our music, tour, play shows with some great bands and met lots of lovely people. We would like to thank everyone who has shown us support, bought our records, come to the shows, said or written nice things about us or had any positive influence on this band over the years. We couldn’t have done it without you. We will keep the myspace page updated with the new music we are making post-HSCS. Lots of love Team Help x"
Endwell have continued the drama and posted ANOTHER blog about the situation of them getting kicked off The Mosh Lives Tour after their initial statement (www.dieshellsuit.co.uk/news_article.asp?nId=2835) and then Emmure’s retaliation (www.dieshellsuit.co.uk/news_article.asp?nId=2838): "so we tried to keep this as impersonal as possible due to the fact that emmure were at one time good friends of ours. but apparently that is no longer the case. a) when we signed to victory we were actually on tour with emmure, and yes of course we were beyond excited to be signed as any band would be. from day ONE we pushed emmure to the victory staff as much as we could. giving staff members cd’s and shirts and hyping them up....because that’s what friends do. when we were told we were going into the studio in 4 weeks we handed emmure a FULLY booked US tour w/ Farewell To Freeway that our old bass player had booked himself(due to the fact that we had recording obligations) every chance we got we would try to help get their name out there...whether it mean wearing their shirts in promos or talking about them in interviews at one point we were even considered ’brother-bands’ b) in response to emmure’s statements about our Hollywood recording budget.: we didn’t get a say in the matter, the studio time was booked and the director was chosen for us.bottom line. we were immediately disgusted by the budget and the outcome and because of that we made it a point to record our next release on a much smaller budget in fact it was 1/40th of the victory budget! we started recording it with no labels in mind and we had our friends Bryan Goldsman and Aram Abgharian record and mix it for us...we figured we could do things right and be able to help out some up and coming engineer/producers/friends...and we’re very happy with the outcome. Once we recorded it we decided to work with a smaller label that has integrity and passion for music and even a some compassion for human beings as well. c) as for shit talking: i think emmure did enough of that in their statement which began "Let me first start by saying we as a band have been friends with these guys for a while so this is in no way partial to one side or another" and then proceeded to bash us for 5 paragraphs. i think its obvious that someone was influencing their words. we don’t have to sit here and ’tarnish’ anything facts speak for themselves I think its apparent whose true colors are shining through in this situation. theres nothing else to say. this whole situation sucks, when we left the tour it was all hugs and friendly goodbyes the best way to put it is in the words of John Joseph, "musicians are just assholes waiting to happen""

Emmure (Victory Records) have posted a response to Endwell’s statement (www.dieshellsuit.co.uk/news_article.asp?nId=2835) on why they were kicked off The Mosh Lives Tour: "Let me first start by saying we as a band have been friends with these guys for a while so this is in no way partial to one side or another. Some of you may have noticed that Endwell has been removed from The Mosh Lives Tour. I’d just like to clear up a few things and set the record straight. This is a respctable tour with respectable bands and band members. This is our tour and us as Emmure must make sure that this tour is not hindered by immaturity since we are responoble for 6 bands 36 people and all their actions. Endwell has been surrounded and plauged with bad decision making since day one. As youll recall they were kicked off a bayside tour as well for lack of any morality, respect, or loyalty to the people that were helping them and were supposed to be friends with. They are quick to talk shit but what they won’t tell you is that when they first got signed to victory they were pumped they loved it they wouldn’t even help us out and get on a show when we needed it because they said they weren’t a local band anymore and they couldnt just do that. Victory put them in a Hollywood recording studio for over a month which excessivly exceeded their budget and time. They were provided with one of the top directors for their music video and put in every major music magazine... You would think they would be thankful After their record bombed to put it gently they started getting pissy and blaming everyone underneath the sun except for themselves which seems to be the trend of that band. And all but 2 members quit. Before this tour started we started hearing how they were talking shit about us and our record which we confronted them about and they confessed and with a good heart and them being our supposed friends we let it slide and kept them on he tour. The very first day they show up they have a shirt they are selling that is blatantly a slap in the face to victory records and us. I don’t know if they are just fucking dumb or naive but how the fuck do you show up to a victory records band headlining tour with that type of shot and think its funny? And expect for it to be ok and get away with it? Despite what they say they dug their own grave and did this to themselves noone is the bad guy in this except them despite their best efforts to tarnish the face of victory records their rue colors really shine through on this one and its just a new low in a bands carreer that doesnt need to get any lower Don’t shit where you sleep or your gonna wake up in shit"
