Dr. Acula Are 'Here to Stay' After Lineup Shift
In their defense, the current lineup of Dr. Acula say that Pete remains friends with the band, but diplomatically state that Rob and Lou left at the height of pressure from touring and impatience towards their shifty record release date. They also added: "S--- happens deal with it ... They thought the band was going to be done with. They wanted to sell the van and call our tour manager to tell him it's over." After that tour in the fall, the band quickly fell apart and reformed with its new cast of characters, but the updated image of the band's future has yet to be laid out for the whole public.
Regardless of the online bantering, the current Dr. Acula says that, "They moved on. We moved on. We are here to stay." And they plan to release a new record in January, followed bya big tour with ABACABB shortly thereafter.
