Murder Weapon have officially decided to disband. Since forming in 2002, the hardcore group has released material with Martyr Records. The band will play one final show at Alley Katz in Richmond, VA on December 26th. Here's a statement from the group:
"It's true. Murder Weapon has decided to call it quits. We’ve had a great time doing the band, but like they say, all good things must come to an end. There's no 'bad blood' (pardon the pun) between any of the band members. We all are still friends. All of us have a lot of responsibilities (work, school, etc.) outside of Murder Weapon which essentially led to the break up. We regret not touring as much and not getting a chance to record our new material, but that's how it goes."
Richmond hardcore outfit Murder Weapon will be entering the studio this fall to begin recording their debut full-length. Producing the effort will be Andreas Magnusson (of Scarlet), and the as-of-yet untitled album should hit stores in early-2005 via Martyr Records.
