Seems like the bad news just keeps on coming.

JP, lead guitarist for the band, almost completely severed the fingers on his left hand while working on a home improvement project a few weeks ago. (Yes, that is the hand he uses to "work the strings".) Although he escaped with all of his digits intact after major surgery (except a small piece of one), he has, as of yet, been unable to play.

As you might well guess, this makes the expected album release date officially "sometime later this year... we hope", as JP put it.
