New York City hardcore/punk band Kill Your Idols has announced plans to disband. Formed over ten years ago, the group has put out a slew of releases, including material with Blackout! Records and Side One Dummy Records. KYI has released the following statement:
"Yes, KYI is breaking up this summer. I want you to hear it first from someone in the band who can tell you that there is no bad blood, no drama, no in-fighting, no record label problems or legal battles, no sickness or death or anything of the usual break-up sort. We are the best of friends, and we just released our best record ever. That is how we want to end it off.
I want you to hear it from the mouth of one of the guys who started this band, whose biggest dreams when we started it was "Imagine we could play a show with H20, Sick of it all, Sheer terror, AF, or 7seconds? Imagine we played and kids moshed? Imagine we made a 7", or even a full length record, that we didn't have to dub 1000 times on our stereo ourselves?" "Imagine we could go on tour?"
Not only have we accomplished ALL those things 1000 times over, but It's safe to say we accumulated the most sincere, coolest following of any band I can think of. We were never a trendy band. All our fans are for real. I never dreamed any person would get that goofy skull tattooed on themselves, and we have seen hundreds of them. I wouldnt be surprised if I saw hundreds more after we break up. The accomplishments we have achieved in this band are without measure. The only thing we didn't accomplish with this band is make a living doing it...and that is because we truly never sold out. With a following as sincere as the one we have, It's enough for us to know that people all over the world hold us as dear to them as we hold bands like Black Flag. That is worth more to us than money. We always worked for a living, and that hasn't changed. Maybe that is what makes us so special. We are regular guys that play some pretty good hardcore music. We are glad you like it!
After several releases, over 50 different tours in 6 years (we lost count!) across the USA, Canada, Europe, and Asia, and almost 11 years as a band, it's time to say goodbye. Why? More...
ICEPICK, HATEBREED frontman Jamey Jasta's much-anticipated collaboration with SKARHEAD singer Lord Ezec, will make their live debut on February 27 at CBGBs in New York City. Fans who attend the gig should expect to hear four or five original songs as well as several HATEBREED and SKARHEAD covers.
The concert, a benefit for Pete Koller from SICK OF IT ALL, will also feature H20, MOST PRECIOUS BLOOD, KILL YOUR IDOLS, ENSIGN, INHUMAN and THE FEARLESS VAMPIRE KILLERS (featuring ex-CRO-MAGS frontman John Joseph and SICK OF IT ALL bassist Craig Setari).
ICEPICK's track "Born to Crush You" was featured on the "UFC Ultimate Beatdowns Vol. 1 Metal" compilation, released last August through Nitrus Records.
