When contacted by Pitchfork, Menuck gave the following statement via Silver Mt. Zion's publicist:
"The Drowned in Sound thing is a misquote, I'm in the middle of dealing with it now. It's true, Godspeed hasn't existed for years, we've been on permanent hiatus since 2002. If and when we do call it quits permanently, it won't be because of the Iraq war."
Anyhow, as I said before, A Silver Mt Zion have a new album coming out in March, 13 Blues for Thirteen Moons, and here is a video of 'The Triumph of Our Tired Eyes', from their second album, Born into Trouble as the Sparks Fly Upward.
