For Those Who Went to the Terror byte Festival
To those at Terror Byte Festival on Saturday, we sincerely apologize for canceling Ctrl's

performance. It was our sole decision for the first time in the band's history to remove ourselves from the bill. Our stage time was moved from 1030pm to after 1am. Rather than cut other bands' set lengths, in order to make the post 1am slot happen, we believed it was better to have the other bands perform their full sets, as originally intended. As a small consolation to those that hoped to see us, and for those that traveled and paid good money, we are offering free cds to those that contact us directly. Please send us your address, with your choice of cd from our catalog. We will post it to you as soon as possible. Again, please accept our apologies. And thanks for your continued support

Thank you
The CTRL Labs

New CTRL album delayed 6 to 8 weeks
The Delay of the CTRL album "lost in static" due to Brad's "accident" was much longer than anticipated. But rest assured the delay is finally over. The cd is now going to press and should be available in August. Thanks for all your patience and understanding. In other news, CTRL will be performing with LUCID Dementia and Subnatural at Elysium Nightclub on Friday July 17th. CTRL will be opening the night and taking the stage around 10pm

New CTRL album delayed 6 to 8 weeks
---> The new CTRL album has been delayed 6-8 weeks. That includes all promised promotional copies to Dj's/Promoters/magazines. The reason for the delay is quite simple. On March 10th 2009 I(Brad MacAllister) was hit by a truck while riding a bicyle. The accident caused the band to cancel the March 30th show for SXSW in Austin Texas. The accident has been a personal time killer, between doctors and lawyers, and insurance companies I have not been able to put the effort required into releasing a proper CD. The accident also made me realize that I have been going full-steam for too many years now. The time had come for me to give up a little CTRL.
We will still be performing with Funker Vogt on Thursday April 23rd at Elysium in Austin Texas.
