Lame, was looking forward to seeing what else this band had in store. Antimacy was pretty weak compared to The Machines We Are, not quite the last hoo rah i would have expected.

Fuck. All 3 of their albums are fantastic. I was really looking forward to the next one.

Antimacy was their worst work yet.. they can't go out like that can they? I think some new bands are coming out of this

Sounds like it, the end of their Facebook message says

"Oh, and stay tuned for some other BIG announcements."

^ That's just some political talk for "stay liked on our facebook page".

Antimacy was RAD. Too bad their departure was because of fanatical restraints.

Digging: Skyharbor - Guiding Lights

That fucking blows. Their last one was alright but the two before it were fantastic.

I'm sad about this one. I didn't love them or anything but I spin both of their past records fairly often, and always thought they had the potential to do something great. Their vocalist was outstanding, the rest of the band was a bit bland, was hoping to see that change in the future. Guess not D:

Digging: Bloodshot Dawn - Demons

Oops, just submitted an article about this without seeing this one.
I am truly gutted, they were a raw and gritty band that produced some fantastic records and i enjoyed their lyrics more
than most.

I saw them only once in '08, just when they released their first LP, I remember the crowd didn't move AT ALL and they were just begging for people to move. They put on a pretty good show though, hopefully they hit up all of Canada one more time.

Band members who don't get along always make the best albums, just ask Mogwai

They better Spec, I really can't see them just going that last show and ending it there. If you're going to call it quits after 10 years you might as well go all out with a cross-country tour.

Same here. Couldn't find them either. Seems to be a popular band name for older folks though.

Sad to see them go now, Antimacy was my least favourite record by them.. Bare Bones have a solid sound going though. Kind of a cross between D&D and ETID
