The rumors are true. While on tour in Iceland, promoting their groundbreaking self titled album (available in retail stores and online), El Privates plane vanished from the radar and nothing has been found since. The events turned from a search and rescue, to a search and recovery late this morning. When contacted for comment they could not be reached. Hopefully with time El Privates will be mentioned in the same breath as other deceased musicians such as Elvis, Lennon, Ray Charles, and John Cougar. Their latest single, "Morning Mahogany", was set to debut later this month.
