ISIS call it quits!


"ISIS has reached an end. It's hard to try to say it in any delicate way, and it is a truth that is best spoken plainly. This end isn't something that occurred over night and it hasn't been brought about by a single cataclysmic fracture in the band. Simply put, ISIS has done everything we wanted to do, said everything we wanted to say. In the interest of preserving the love we have of this band, for each other, for the music made and for all the people who have continually supported us, it is time to bring it to a close. We've seen too many bands push past the point of a dignified death and we all promised one another early on in the life of the band that we would do our best to ensure ISIS would never fall victim to that syndrome..." more

Christ, that's 3 post in a row with bands coming to an end. First finding out Orn's long dead, then that Faust released their last record and now Isis are throwing in the towel!. Like Faust, ISIS is one of my favorite bands ever, so this is terrible news. But it is better to go out on top (how I wish the Simpsons stopped after season 10) and as they said let the band die a dignified death. I'm glad I got to see them live 3 times already. And I hope to make it up to Montreal for their last show.

In other talk: as you can see I've posted a lot lately. Will be without internet for a week or two soon so wanted to post a bunch before I went offline (posted more than I thought I would). So this'll probably be the last post for a couple weeks but you have a lot to check out. I posted so many (23 in a few days) that a lot are pushed to the second page so your scrolling finger should get a workout. Happy listening. I'm gonna go roll a fattie and listen to some ISIS. Peace!

It's sad, but at least they went out at or very close to their peak.

I'm glad to see someone who agrees that the Simpsons should've stopped at season 10. Also, bummer about Isis, but at least its dignified and I got to see them live.
