Brooklyn-based SCAR CULTURE have officially called it a day, according to guitarist John Conley. "Adversity, line up changes and other obstacles have made continuing SCAR CULTURE in good conscience impossible," Conley writes in a statement sent to BLABBERMOUTH.NET. "Rather than cheapen the accomplishments and memories of what SCAR CULTURE has meant we have decided to let go.
"Thank you for all of your support over the years."
The following is a short summary of what the members of SCAR CULTURE are currently doing:
Roman Garbacik (vocals): Is running Spare Change Records. He is also seeking musical projects. He can be contacted at ScarCulture7@aol.com.

Former STEREOMUD guitarist John Fattoruso is currently in the process of writing material for a brand new project called FIVE YEAR STARE. Joining Fattoruso in the new band is former OUT OF BODY drummer Chris Hermmans. Fattoruso and Hermmans are currently seeking a bass player and singer while they continue to write and record new songs. The group's musical direction is being described as "a lot heavier than STEREOMUD" but without sacrificing the melodic edge.
STEREOMUD, which featured in its ranks former members of LIFE OF AGONY and STUCK MOJO, split up in June 2003 following the disappointing sales performance of the band's sophomore effort, "Every Given Moment". The group's debut album, "Perfect Self", was released in 2001.
