"I never want to put anybody in a bad spot. I'm so grateful for the people that I work with and for the fans that come to my shows and I want to be at my best for all of them.
"That means I'm going to have to wait until I'm feeling really good, not just good enough like I have been. Good enough isn't working for us all." Read morehere.

The tune surfaced last month ahead of the March 10 release of the band's seventh record, which was written, recorded and produced by frontman Gavin Rossdale.
"I wanted to write a record about what it's like coming out of a cannon before you take off through these watershed times," Rossdale tells Billboard. "I think it really is important to have the element of hope and repair and sunshine because it's such a divided world now. It's so divided and crazy and unstable and vulnerable.
"It's fallen at my feet as a lyricist to consider the position that we're in -- and unfortunately chaos makes for really fertile ground to write from." Watch the videohere.
The group, which also includes Alex Landenburg (Rhapsody and Annihilator) and Peter Iwers (In Flames and Stoney Mountain), plan to hit the studio this spring to record the effort which will be released under their just inked deal with Spinefarm Records.
Frontman Jake E. had this to say "The excitement I feel about Cyhra is over the top. I have to pinch myself every day to make sure it's not just another dream. I am so proud of the music we have created and I can't wait to show it to the world!" Read morehere.
Quinn Allman, our producer Dan Whittaker, and I were in the studio shuffling through Quinn's hard drive full of song ideas. We came across this song that had these really eerie guitar bends that rung in the back of your skull (Quinn has the sickest bends).
When Dan and I expressed our immediate interest in the song, Quinn sent me a list of lyrics he had quickly written down as throwaways. We started joking about the very emo quality of the lyrics and started making up our own to the melody that he had in mind.
When writing lyrics for Charlatan, I write songs for me, not about me. I enjoy working out ideas in the written word that can help me later in life by being freely interpreted. Ironically, I have no qualm writing about me for other people's music because it can't be tied directly to me. Read moreright here!
