In the midst of the controversy surrounding Tau Cross (and former Amebix) frontman Rob Miller and his support of noted Holocaust denier Gerard Menuhin, Miller has said that he will continue the band on his own. He says he is "releasing" Michel Langevin (also of Voivod) from Tau Cross, and that Langevin "should not be associated with this band in any manner in future." He also says "Andy Lefton is released with immediate effect" and that "the remaining members will probably leave of their own accord and are encouraged to do so should they feel pressured,but there is a welcome place her for anyone brave enough to stay."

This follows the band being dropped by Relapse Records after it came to light that Miller thanked Menuhin and called him an inspiration for the album in the album's liner notes. The label said they were not familiar with Menuhin's work prior to announcing the album, and Miller's four bandmates released their own statement saying none of them were familiar with Menuhin, and that they “are adamantly against anything relating to this kind of ugliness.” “We’ve been vigilant in our attempts to get answers as to why this has happened and, frankly, how it could possibly happen considering our background and beliefs,” they added.
