"He thought about marketing our new album, Everything Now, in ways that we never would have, and while we didn't agree with all of them, we had internally agreed to try some things this time around that we might not have tried in the past," the band said.
"In recent weeks, it has come to light that [the strategist] crossed the line from marketing into outright fiction on more than one occasion, and has even offended some readers, fans and websites," they continued.

The It's Alive: Classic Horror and Sci-fi art from the Kirk Hammett Collection exhibit will open Saturday, Aug. 12 at Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA. The collection includes over 100 pieces.
"For me, the horror genre took me over at a young age," Hammett told Boston Magazine. "I was five years old when I saw my first horror movie, and from the onset it was like discovering an entirely different world out there that I never knew existed."
"It was just something that made me feel incredibly safe, comfortable, inspired," he continued. "Over the course of time, as a child, I got more into reading books on horror, monster magazines, horror comic books--that was during the '60s horror toy craze. I was a sponge and soaked it all up."

During this part of her July 30th show in Dallas, Idina asked a couple of kids to help her sing the Frozen hit -- an invite which seemed to bring every child in the room to the stage -- and was pleasantly surprised when she saw a boy in the crowd.
"Oh, I love when the dudes come up," Idina said with a smile before introducing 11-year-old Luke Chacko. Even more surprising was his response to the singer's question about whether or not he knew the song.
"Do you even know what song this is?" Idina asked. "'Let It Go' obviously' What kind of question is that?" Luke fired back without even missing a beat.
Idina went on to explain that during many of her shows, boys who have come up on stage have told her they were not really fans of the song, and one boy even preferred to sing Justin Timberlake's "Can't Stop the Feeling" from Trolls, which drew laughs from Luke and the audience.
"Heck to the no," Luke said about that notion. 'I'm offended!"
It was at that point Idina let Luke sing some of the song, which immediately caused the room to erupt in applause. "Can you all just shut up for a minute and let him sing it again?" Idina cheerfully scolded the crowd. "Because you're not hearing all of the subtleties because you're screaming -- and that's OK -- but now do it again!"
Luke then belted out the chorus backed by Idina's band and wowed the crowd a second time. "You're very special," Idina told Luke before joking, "well, who wants to go after that?!" Check out the full performancehere.

The internationally renowned DJ sat down to discuss his recent African tour and also dished on how he's yet to find a track that's the right fit for Rihanna, who's been rather blunt about the choices he's presented.
