WINDS OF PLAGUE und Drummer Jeff Tenny gehen getrennte Wege. Zum Split nimmt Sänger Johnny Stellung:
"WINDS OF PLAGUE as individuals have been hit very hard recently by a very selfish act committed by our longtime drummer. We are disgusted and very disappointed in his actions. However, we as a band are not going to let this slow us down. A few drummers from the tour have stepped up and are helping us finish the remainder of the 'Thrash and Burn' run. We are currently on the search for a new drummer."
