Ryan O'Connor of Outbreak has posted an update on the band's status which includes some major lineup changes and a departure from Bridge 9 who released 2006's Failure:

The last year has been a really crazy time for me personally and for Outbreak. Anyone who's seen us over the last year has probably noticed we've had member changes and multiple fill ins. We've gone through some rough patches that I feel would be the end of most bands. I'll start by saying that it won't be the end for Outbreak.

Next week we enter The Outpost with Jim Siegel to record our new full length album, which will be self titled. As of now, we do not have confirmation on the label who will be putting it out, but we decided we're recording anyway. No, it won't be out on Bridge 9. We fulfilled our contract with Bridge 9 after our last album, so we've been "shopping" for a couple months now. I think Chris Wrenn (Bridge 9 owner) is a good guy with good intentions and smart business sense, unfortunately I can't say the same for everyone else I've encountered at Bridge 9. I'll leave it at that.
