News - 4/11/2016
As Provision entered into 2016', the band kicked off the new year
with 2 incredible shows in Houston and Austin, Texas.
Both shows were Electric!! And Provision has been on Fire.
But it seems that circumstances beyond our control,
have put and end to that flame.
Please read on for the latest news with the band.
This was not an easy one for me to compose.
Seabound Show Thanks and Live Video
Provision would like to thank everyone who made it out to see them on
Sunday, February 28th 2016' at Numbers in Houston, Texas as they shared
the stage with Seabound (Germany).
The band was completely On Fire that night, as they kicked off the event
hosted by VJ Rob of The New Beat and Carmina Bell of Underworld.
The band had 2 cameras running that night, and the full show has been
edited and uploaded to Red Square Digital’s You Tube page; which can be
found here: Red Square Digital
Check out the Live footage and please feel free to share it online!!
SXSW Show Thanks and Thoughts
Provision performed in Austin, Texas on March 16th 2016' during the
Interactive Weekend portion of SXSW – South By Southwest. Provision was
honored to have this opportunity to finally perform during one of the biggest
music festivals and conferences in the United States!!
Once again, Provision was On Fire; and performed
an incredible set list for the crowd in attendance.
Breye stated that “The 2 shows we played this year thus far with Seabound
in Houston, and in Austin at SXSW; were 2 of the best shows that the band
has ever performed. And they are perhaps the greatest 2 shows ever
performed by the current lineup!”
Provision sends it’s utmost Gratitude and Thanks to Jessica Love and
Urbane Design, and all of the sponsors involved for hosting such a
Provision would also like to thank Reagan Jones of Iris for coming out to
support the band in person.
Reagan is a great friend and a true supporter of Live Music.
Matt Willis Leaves Provision
It is with great sadness that I have been informed by Breye ‘7x’ Kiser that,
Matt Willis (Synthesizers, Vocals, & Electronic Percussion 2009’ to 2016’) has
decided to leave Provision. Matt's decision to leave Provision came very
suddenly and without any warning.
Matt’s resignation came in person to Breye on Friday, February 26th 2016 at
Red Square Digital, followed by Matt’s final 2 shows with the band which
followed on 2/28/16 in Houston, TX with Seabound; and on 3/16/16 at SXSW in
Regarding Matt's departure, Breye would like me to pass on the
following official statement:
“There wasn't a falling out, or any issues between Matt and I, that brought
about his departure. At least none I've ever been aware of, or that have ever
been made known to me.
Matt stated to me personally, he is "leaving to pursue other goals and
dreams". Whether these have to do with his other bands, which include
Splendor Projekt and Transcendent 7, or his wife and 4 kids; I can’t honestly
say. I did not ask, and these are questions that I cannot answer, and which
only he knows.
Since Matt's departure, the only further news he has shared, is that his
oldest daughter is headed off to college this year; and Matt would like to
spend as much time with her as possible before she leaves.
I thank him for his 7 years of faithful service to the band, and wish him the
best on this next journey that he will travel. His legacy though the Triad Era
of Provision (Paradigm Shift and A New Revolution) with myself and
Jen ‘Skully’ Kiser, will likely be unmatched; by anyone that has held his
position in the band!
Matt is one of the most talented musicians and writers that I know, and I will
always be honored that I got to work with him in Provision.”
Matt wrote a Goodbye Letter to the Provision Fans which can be found here:
Matt’s Goodbye Letter
Carlos Covarrubias Leaves Provision
I am also deeply saddened to bring you all the unfortunate news that
Carlos Covarrubias (Live Bass Guitar, Engineering, Marketing and
Promotions) also decided to leave Provision in March.
His resignation came in an email to Breye on Sunday, March 20th 2016.
And Carlos Officially Resigned in a letter posted to his personal Facebook
page, just one day after Matt publicly posted his departure on his blog.
Regarding the loss of Carlos, Breye stated the following:
“In summary, Carlos's letter simply stated that “His plate is overflowing
and he no longer has time to perform with the band”.
I was not awarded the opportunity to speak to him in person, and
unfortunately this is all the information I was given.
Sadly, it is all I can pass on; to all of you.
I was completely shocked and grief stricken when I read the email.
Carlos has been a Live Member of the band, off and on since 2004’.
He is a great performer, and has always added so much to our live shows;
when he has been on-board.
Carlos helped engineer our 2nd and 3rd albums, and he’s always been a
valuable asset in the marketing and promotion of the band. Carlos will be
missed, and I can only wish him the best with his personal endeavors."
Regarding Provision and the Future of the Band
Matt's resignation in February, and Carlos’s decision to leave immediately
after Matt's Official Departure; moves the band in to very dark times right
Breye has written the following statement, for me to pass on to all of you.
“I cannot begin to express the amount of sadness I feel at this time. I am
completely heartbroken. We had such huge things we were working on,
including our New Single, and we’d been in talks of adding a New Member to
the band, who would fill the void left by Jen; when she retired from
Provision in December of 2012'.
With our New Single having been the combined work of Matt Willis and
myself; the future of this release is now up in the air; with Matt’s very
sudden departure from the band. Chances are, it will not see the light of day.
I felt so energized going into this year, with our first show of 2016 being at
home here in Houston, TX with Seabound from Germany; and then
performing in Austin, TX at SXSW - South by Southwest.
Both shows were near flawless for the band, and I had admonished both
Matt and Carlos with tons of praise for their work.
I seriously could not have been more proud of them both!
We were planning to press another new design of T-Shirts, and we were
planning to press new sticker designs; and buttons for 2016’.
So much positivity was about to happen.
And my world all came crashing down.
And sadly that includes the world of Provision for all of you.
So now I sit here in the studio at Red Square Digital, at a Crossroads.
And I feel so completely defeated.
I feel lost. I no longer have clarity.
Should this be the end, or a new beginning?
Everything we have ever done, has always been for our fans.
For all of you, who have shown us your undying Love and Support
over the years.
To walk away, or to forge ahead? In the Absence of Light.
Whichever I choose, never forget that I Love You All; so very much!!”
Breye ‘7x’ Kiser / Provision
Over the coarse of the last 5 years that I have worked for Provision, I have
never had to update the Official Website here with such sad news, even
though Jen 'Skully' Kiser's retirement; hit me very hard. But all of this was
just too much. I broke down in tears just reading it, over the weekend; when
it was sent to me.
Many of you may have been unaware of what has happened in the band,
as I myself also had no idea. I am not a fan of social media, so you won't find
me on roaming the internet on Myspace, Facebook, Twitter, etc...
What can I say about any of this, except I know Breye is hurting
intensely; and needs all of you more than you know!!
Please keep him in your thoughts, during this dark time he has entered.
I know not, what the future holds for Provision.
I can only hope that this is not the end.
