"I have been struggling with many personal issues the last year but lately, the main one has been alcohol, it's been affecting my body in a very negative way to the point that when I came
home after the Ex Deo tour we just did, I tried to stop drinking for few days and it's been very hard without having any with drawls symptoms, I've also lost a lot of weight as some of you noticed recently and I'm not in good shape."
Max says he has heard the band's new material and thinks it's some of the best music the band has ever done, but:
"It's going to be a very demanding album and my state of mind and body is not ready to confront this big task right now, I need to clean my body and my mind and come back focused to Kataklysm
and I don't know how long this will take..."
Max Duhamel ends his statement by saying that it's time to take responsibility. He will not be attending the Juno Awards ceremony in two weeks for Ex Deo nominations but he will close his contract with the shows in May that are left: Extremefest and Beastival in Germany plus Metalfest in the Czech Republic. Those will be Max' last shows until he is ready again to come back in full form.
Kataklysm's new album 'Waiting for the End to Come' is tentatively scheduled for a late 2013 / early 2014 release. The album will be recorded by guitarist Jean Francois Dagenais and mixed by Zeuss (Suffocation, Hatebreed, Arsis).
