Guitarist Robert Tighe of New York thrashers, Exit To Eternity, has issued the following message regarding their decision to lay the band to rest on their Myspace Page:
"It is sad to say, but after 10 years as a band, the show at the Ace of Clubs on this Saturday, September 20th will be Exit to Eternity's final performance. Not just for the year, but forever. We have finally decided to put this band to rest."
"Words cannot begin to describe how incredible this journey has been. We started this band around the summer of 1998, as a bunch of teenagers wanting to cover our favorite songs by our favorite bands. Playing covers turned into writing original music, and before long we started hitting the local scene. These were the best years of our lives. Being able to open for bands like Testament, Symphony X, Arch Enemy, Overkill, Exodus, Superjoint Ritual, Kreator, Destruction, Biohazard, and Angra, just to name a few, were some of the most incredible experiences imaginable."

Robert Tighe of New York thrashers, Exit to Eternity, has issued the following update regarding the departure of guitarist Alex Efros:
"Exit to Eternity and Alex Efros are splitting ways. Alex came to us and let us know he feels that he needs to concentrate more his time on other things in his life, and we completely respect that. Alex is a phenomenal musician, and we wish him all the best in the future. In all the years we've been doing this whole band thing, Dima, Carmine, and myself have felt that we sounded the best with Alex in this lineup. Alex, cheers brother!" More...
