OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
LA ROCK BAND MEDICATION PARTS WAYS WITH LABEL AND DISBANDS
Los Angeles, CA (February 19, 2003) -- MEDICATION has officially parted ways with label, LOCOMOTIVE RECORDS.
Along with this label separation, MEDICATION has collectively agreed to dissolve the band. While they believed in this project since its inception, this amicable decision to disband was one that was carefully considered. After four years, the band felt they gave MEDICATION their all and decided it was in their best interest to move on and pursue other projects.
LOGAN MADER (guitar/vocals), continues to produce/engineer other bands and is working on a project with BLUNT (guitar). WHIT CRANE (vocals) is involved in a project in San Francisco that is not yet announced. KYLE SANDERS (bass) and CHRIS HAMILTON (drums) continue to work on their VOD project.
Along with the above, MEDICATION will no longer have an official website or message board. The band's former official website, MedicationMusic.com, is now closed.
MEDICATION extends thanks to all the fans, press and radio that supported their music.
