Soulidium frontman Michael McKnight checked in with fans on Saturday (August 18) with the following bulletin on their Myspace:
To all of our friends and family:
For several days not much has been heard from us. this is the first time we have had a chance to get in front of a computer. On the 14th of August, the home in which several members, along with our equipment trailer and 2 verhicles were consumed by a massive fire for which the cause is not yet known. While we all made it out alive, we are in the middle of struggling to gain back what we had. Our management is working hard to piece back our equipment, but everything we owned was destroyed in the fire. Luckily, AJ, Eric and Jake were spared as they moved out a week before the blaze, but most of their equipment was lost in the trailer. However, the balance of us in the band are in the process of rebuilding.
Soulidium WILL rebuild and we would like to thank those of you who have expressed your best wishes and concern and also to the hard work of the Springfield Fire Department who did their very best… We might not be able to get online as much as we would like but very shorlty, all should return to normal. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers but be assured,… WE WILL REBUILD AND WE WILL RETURN TO ROCK YOU ALL SOON… ALL SHOW DATES UP ARE STILL VALID. WE WILL BE THERE!!!… HORNS WAY UP!!!
