Jeffrey Nothing (ex-Mushroomhead) Premieres New Song “Fragile Mind”

Jeffrey Nothing (ex-Mushroomhead) has premiered a new song titled “Fragile Mind.“ You can check that out below. Nothing’s solo project finds him joined by guitarist Thomas Church (ex-Mushroomhead), drummer Noah “Shark” Robertson (ex-Motograter/The Browning), vocalist Ian D, and bassist Kahler Hatrix.

Nothing commented:

“This song wrote itself! Life takes odd twists and turns and sometimes finds dead ends. Creativity is a gift, yours to guide you through peace of mind and life experiences… we choose our paths. We alone should command our directions, our course to happiness and never despair, no matter what anyone else believes or demands… Ever!

‘Fragile Mind‘ is one of many new songs I have had the pleasure of being a part of. Working with people with heart and soul! Yes, soul is incredible, to say the very least. Thomas Church, Noah Robertson, Ian D, Kahler Hatrix and others have brought huge smiles and laughter and other emotions, long dead back to the creative process.

Art isn’t about orders or demands, it is about doing what you love. We have a plethora of music and amazing minds helping to construct a living, breathing “Monster” of a musical journey. Our fans deserve NOTHING but love too.”

Tour Dates:

10/06 Iola, KS – RocktoberFest
10/13 Chanute, KS – RocktoberFest

Ex-Motograter Drummer Issues New Statement On His Departure, Band Fires Back

Noah “Shark” Robertson has issued a longer statement on his departure from Motograter, blasting the band, especially guitarist Matt “Nuke” Nunes, who Robertson says has issues with drugs, violence, etc. You can read his full statement and a new one from Motograter below.

Robertson:

“I’ve had enough. I tried to go about this diplomatically. I did my best to remain silent, out of respect for the band and the fans. But one can only go so long, when people are out there spreading lies and rumors about you. Fans and friends are turning against me. People are emailing me, texting, and calling – harassing me, threatening me, saying horrible things about my character. Continue reading

Noah “Shark” Robertson Exits Motograter

Noah “Shark” Robertson has announced his departure from Motograter. Considering the drummer made it a point to say that he believes “vile, despicable, greedy, disgusting, horrible, evil people get theirs in the end,” it is probably safe to assume that the split was not amicable.

Here’s Robertson’s full statement:

“It breaks my heart to release this statement. It looks like my time in the band Motograter has come to an abrupt and shocking end. I want to thank all my friends, the fans, and my extended music family for the support over the years. Like I always do, I will persevere in a major way. I truly loved the band, have always been a fan, and am proud of everything I was able to accomplish with the group.

For the past 4 years, I dedicated my life to that project. In that time, the majority of the activity you have seen coming from the Motograter camp was largely orchestrated by me. You won’t find many that will dispute that. When I first joined the band, it was in shambles; a hollow shell of it’s former glory. And so I made it my mission to help build the band back into something admirable and respectable.

Something the old fans would approve of and new fans could appreciate. It was a long, hard road to get there… but we made it happen. The only thing I have to say is I truly believe that vile, despicable, greedy, disgusting, horrible, evil people get theirs in the end… the universal law of Karma is inescapable.

I am currently available for tours, recording, and other music collaborations.

Tommy Gibbons Reportedly Exits Flaw Due To Chris Volz’s Alleged Addiction Issues

Tommy Gibbons (ex-Tantric) reportedly left Flaw mid-tour, due to Chris Volz’s addiction issues. This news comes from Motograter’s Noah “Shark” Robertson, who wrote a letter urging Volz to get help.

Robertson said the following:

“I’m traveling home from the recent Motograter tour as I type this message. Ironically enough I was listening to the latest Flaw album and felt compelled to pull over and get this out. I’m almost certain I will receive some sort of backlash from this, but I can’t say that I care. I can no longer stay silent…

My intention here is not to slander anyone or call anyone out. I’m hoping that by saying something it will shine a light on the matter and he will get the help that he needs. And I certainly don’t want to roll Tommy under the bus, but something tells me he will understand. Yesterday I received a random Facebook message from Tommy Gibbons… he proceeds to tell me I was right about Chris and that he has left Flaw, mid-tour, due to Chris Volz‘s problems with addiction.

As many of you may remember Motograter recently toured with Flaw. As a long time fan of the band, it was one of the highlights of my music career. After the tour, Chris and I had an unpleasant public exchange through the media… He was randomly talking shit about Motograter and my record label, Zombie Shark Records. It took me by complete surprise.

Mostly because I have been massively inspired by Chris and his music, for as long as I can remember. I’m speaking out about this because I truly wish him the best and I’m hoping that my words today will somehow bring him one step closer to seeking help and conquering his demons. His beautiful voice and powerful lyrics inspire many other people, just like me, all over the world… and I’d love to see him recover so that he can continue to make music that changes and saves lives. His friends, family, and fans need him well!

This is my letter…

In your own words Mr. Volz,

“I’m trying to save you from a fatal fall
‘Cause I don’t think that you can take it
You gotta stop before you lose it all
And find the strength so you can make it”

Sincerely,
Noah “Shark” Robertson

P.S. This isn’t the first time I have been contacted by ex-members of Flaw. Among others, I was recently contacted by Chris Ballinger, former drummer of Flaw. He had some harsh words but underneath it all, it only eludes to the fact that Chris needs help.”
