According to Rick Rozz’s Facebook site, a MASSACRE reunion is currently in the works… "Looking forward to being in the same room, jammin again with Terry Butler", he recently posted. "Rehearsals start in a few weeks my friends, Mike Mazzonetto and I have been jammin a few of the old tracks, and it sounds like MASSACRE has been in the gym working out, hard!!! This will be the heaviest and most brutal this band has ever sounded in its history, hands down. European tour plans in the works for November / December 2011. This will not be MASSACRE, but a tribute out of respect for the name, that has been dragged through the mud over the years." In return Kam Lee posted the following on his Facebook site: "Yep, MASSACRE is re-forming – but I’m not involved. Isn’t it nice when $$$ takes more importance over integrity. Well, at least the fans will get their new MASSACRE album finally. Well, best I wipe my hands clean from the whole MASSACRE shit anyways, time to move on. I’m not sweating it at all. FINALLY I feel I can remove this shadow that’s been lingering over my head for the past 20 years, like a snake shedding it’s skin, I’m going to grow out of this old corpse and move on to bigger and better things. Well – I guess if stuff like MISFITS keeps going without Glen – they decided to finally reform MASSACRE without me… and it’s their juvinile way to try and hurt me. But it’s only going to turn around and bite them in the ass. It just put me into high gear to do my own KAM LEE band now and FUCK anyone who doesn’t like it! I’m actually happy to let this go… FINALLY. I feel I can finally move forwards without it being held over my head. I’m GLAD they are doing it. Let the fans that are only about the ‘name’ follow them and let those remain that stay TRUE the real bands image. EVERYTHING I own MASSACRE is up for SALE! Including the 20 foot back drop of the original logo – make me an offer this is the very LAST time I will be selling anything MASSACRE until the year ends. All my original vinyl, posters, T-shirts are all going! I don’t wish to be associated anymore with a mere – cash in bands reformation – call it pride, integrity, or foolish hubris, but I’m done with it… FINALLY! Honestly EVERYONE… this isn’t as upsetting to me as one would think. Hell man, maybe I’m just numb right now, finding out my grandmother passed away this morning on top of this news, this whole MASSACRE thing is rather a relief – more than a bother. I’m not upset about it at all. I’m glad to be set free from this once and for all and with them moving forwards with it finally cuts the cord."
