Anterior call it quits
2012-02-01 by Magnus Altkula STAFF | 16 Comments
Welsh metalcore/melodeath act Anterior are calling it quits after releasing only two full-length albums. The band will be playing one last show in London on March 2nd.

Statement from the band: "It is with great sadness and disappointment that we have decided to call it a day. After 10 years, 2 albums, many members and countless tours we will no longer be continuing with Anterior.

We are all still friends and have the best regards for each other and we all wish that things could have been different. Every band have their struggles, problems and adversity to overcome and we had all of it and some! Even though we came through it all and continued no matter what blocks stood in our way it is now time for us to go out on a high note. After being to so many countries and having the amazing, loyal and dedicated fanbase we do, this has been an immensely hard decision for us. There are many obstacles in the music industry and we can no longer fight the uphill battle to keep going.

We would like to thank our friends and families for their undying support over the years, our manager, our crew, our label, all of the amazing bands we have toured with and every single person who bought our records, came out to shows, pillaged our Merch, bought us beers and generally made this the experience of an entire lifetime! You are the reason that all of this was possible and we will never forget it. Thank you all so much for your love and support and for showing us how music can bring so much happiness. We love you all and always will."

The only thing I have to say about all of these bands I don't care about breaking up is that I won't be surprised when bands I do care about break up.
