Woe, Is Me Announce Break Up
2013-09-19 by andcas | 81 Comments

Atlanta, Georgia based metalcore band Woe, Is Me have decided to call it quits after their
current vocalist Hance Alligood has abruptly parted ways. In a detailed farewell addressed to the
fans, he straightforwardly explains a long withstanding discontent with the genre of music and the
direction of it all.

Woe, Is Me have certainly been no strangers to a wildly dysfunctional career since forming
merely four years ago to sign with Rise Records. In the relatively short span there has been a total
of seven key songwriting member changes full of enough drama to construct a daytime soap opera
out of the mix.

As it stood, there was only one original member who remained from the sextet who had
recently released a brand new EP not even a month ago. It's unclear where the lineup will go next
but Alligood is already planning projects while past members have chosen either college, producing,
or other bands.

& delinquents was a decent song (for being generic metalcore) but what i've heard of them since then was pretty meh.

Besides, I honestly think it's stupid for a band to continue on without any original members. It's not the same band anymore when that happens.

i find it hard to like any band that has two different vocalists. when did that shitty trend in post hardcore start? all you need is one that can scream and do occasional clean vocals. i wouldn't think that's so hard to find.

Somewhat agree. I like when the guitarist/bassist/drummer of a band also does vocals, but I think it's stupid when there are two dedicated vocalists that don't play any instrument. We Came As Romans does this.

it's just boring. it seems like every band in this genre adheres to that same cookie cutter format because it's easier than doing something original. this shit has to be waning in popularity, no? (i'm 27)

So the guitarist from abandon all ships that joined woe is me is now out of a job. Though i'm sure at least 1 core band will spawn from this break-up anyway. Maybe Hance's solo stuff will be good, cause I actually liked the acoustic songs on the EP.
