After tonight's performance, Rise from Ruin will go on hiatus, as the lead singer of the inspiration heavy metal band has been called to active National Guard duty in Afghanistan. Jay Lakin, Marion, leaves next week.
As fledgling bands go, the absence of one member doesn't necessarily signal the end of the group, but drummer Ian Kaehr, LaFontaine, said the band will wait for Lakin to complete his service, which is expected to last more than a year, before the band takes to the stage again.
"When he first told us, it was really a big shock," Kaehr said. "We're going to wait on him. He wanted us to write some more songs."
While Lakin is away, the band will work on writing music and recording soundtracks so that when Lakin returns, he can add his voice to the band's music.
The four-member band has been together for six months. Marion guitarist Yog, (a name given to him by his grandmother) and bass player, David LaRoux, Marion, have been in the band since 2001. Kaehr joined the group a few years later.
