    The Matrix's latest statement regarding their work with Avril

    Tuesday, July 10, 2007

    Statement from The Matrix regarding their work with Avril Lavigne

    Seeing old and long finished business between Avril and ourselves
    dredged up as a means to challenge her artistic and writing talents
    in a matter which, at arms-length seems transparent and
    opportunistic at its best characterization, has found us feeling the
    need to make a single closing statement as to the events of long ago
    which are now being given new life and, to our view, improperly used
    and characterized.

    The single core matter between ourselves and Avril where we were not
    happily in-sync, derived from a few comments released in the press
    which snowballed and found themselves creating personal issues in an
    extremely harmonious relationship where theretofore were none. They
    ultimately placed personal matters where it was hard for both sides
    to let business to just be business. An initial comment by Avril,
    which derived from an unhappiness with a part of a business and not
    creative equation, started the years-old chain reaction. We then
    felt the need to defend ourselves and something that was a minor
    matter became fanned into a major one by parties other than
    ourselves and Avril.

    When comments were made some five years ago to Rolling Stone
    magazine, we were viewing to defend The Matrix's songwriting
    credibility and involvement, which had been presented and
    characterized to us as being under attack. People were suggesting a
    sizable variance between what we experienced to have taken place in
    the writing of the works and representing us as unfairly insisting
    on more of a songwriter percentage than we should. We were very much
    hurt to think anyone would accuse us of taking credit for more than
    we were due, much less someone whom we found ourselves so close with
    and supportive of. The whole matter caught us off guard and was
    disappointing. We are personal friends with everyone we have worked
    with -- from Jonathan Davis of KORN to Ricky Martin to Jason Mraz
    and Shakira -- and we've never had any so-called differences with
    any of them as to the fair allocation of song splits. Our music is
    our life and it's all personal. It's where we live. We always put
    our hearts and respect into what we do both in and out of the studio.

    While we stand behind our work and belief that we were both
    supportive and fair in our interactions, it pains us to see that now
    these provoked and youthful words of both sides from interviews of
    over five years ago are being used to kick Avril and validate
    another's case of her not being a writer or talent. Despite
    any varying perspectives on how we wished to allocate our mutual
    writings, we had a fabulous and unique experience with Avril, who
    was then a 16-year-old rapidly growing songwriter with tremendous
    raw talent. The songs were conceived on piano and guitar by four
    people: The Matrix (3) and Avril. And to be clear, Avril was
    instrumental in the songs' creation. We were all very close during
    the making of the record. When it became a huge hit, people who
    were not there at the time of the making of the record decided to
    draw and put forth in the press their own conclusions as to how
    creativity took place. This continues.

    We remain big Avril fans both musically and personally, as well
    as very much recognize and believe in her and her talents. We wish
    her much continued success and know her talent will shine through
    these matters and long beyond.

    Best,

    The Matrix

    Wow. Didnt see THAT coming.
    Kudos to The Matrix. Nice to see some people are more mature than Chantal and Perez.

    This is a really nice gesture.....and I guess this means they will not testify against her in court if it comes to that.

    A-J...................Eat a spleen for Avril Lavigne!.................... A-J

    they just wrote something to get some attention while the topic is hot again.
    why say something back then and say the opposite now.

    They would have gotten more attention had they said "Avril Lavigne's a hack and she took credit for our songwriting efforts." I'm fairly confident that their statement is sincere and not just a media ploy.

    Tis true. It's the same reason why Perez is famous. Talking smack gets you more attention in the press.
