Il chitarrista dei Fates Warning Jim Matheos ha postato sul sito internet della band il seguente comunicato:
Just wanted to wish everyone a happy and prosperous new year. Looks like the plan is for FATES to start writing for the next record in mid to late ’02 with an eye towards an early ’03 release. We will, however, still try to put something out, perhaps a DVD or a CD of covers/unreleased material in ’02 but nothing has been confirmed yet. Meanwhile, Ray Alder continues working on the new ENGINE, Mark Zonder is busy with WARLORD and other projects, and I am working on a side/solo project that I hope to be able to tell you more about soon.
Again, happy new year and thanks for your continued support.”
