After an extended period of silence and uncertainty, Of Machines have updated fans on the current state of what was supposed to be their final EP. In short, the band's vocalist Dylan Anderson has gone missing, along with the money the band crowdfunded for the effort. Additionally, the group claim to have no access to the PayPal account they used to culminate the donations with, as it is under Anderson's name. You can read a full statement from the group below.
In light of the controversy, Of Machines have posted two demos from the final release on PureVolume, encouraging those who want to add vocals to do so.
With a heavy heart.. it doesn't seem like the chroma season ep is going to happen… After months of trying to contact Dylan he, unfortunately, is MIA. Music has been written, but without a vocalist this ep doesn't seem possible.
Thank you to everyone who believed in us so much enough to give us a second chance to record. We really wish we were able to provide you with more.
As far as refunds please contact Dylan Anderson, we hope he will do the right thing and refund everyone their money they donated. If anyone else in the band had access to any of the pay pal accounts refunds would have already be given. But unfortunately the donation account was under his name.
Thank you everyone for your support. you all are the best people we have ever had to believe in us.
We love you all.
If anyone would like we could release our demos with out vocals and all of you could finish our ep with us.
