Raging Speedhorn Breaking Up

British band Raging Speedhorn is calling it quits after roughly ten years together. Here's a statement from the band:

"I'm a little sad to say that after this year, 2008, Raging Speedhorn will be no more. Some of our old friends knew this already but a while ago we decided that after 10 years it is time to move on and do something else, create something new.

"10 years feels like a really long time and we all feel absolutely blessed to have been part of this band. We have travelled the world playing Speedhorn songs, we've toured the US, Japan and Europe numerous times and played just about every shit hole there is to play in our beloved UK!

"With our last record, we really felt like there was nothing left to do. We feel like 'Before the Sea Was Built' is an apt way to sign off.

"The memories of my 10 years in Raging Speedhorn will stay with me forever. They have been both the happiest and most desperate times of my life. Although I'm sure not one of us would change a second of it.

"We've all come a long way from being 19 years old and living in Corby. And now it's time to make the next transistion and move on to pastures new. I'm sure plenty of new projects will arise involving one or two of us.

"We'll be playing our final ever UK shows sometime in the autumn. Thank you for listening."

Raging Speedhorn Guitarist Posts Tour Wrap Up

Guitarist Gareth Smith of the Corby, UK metallers RAGING SPEEDHORN has posted a lengthy European tour wrap-up on the band's MySpace page. A couple of excerpts follow:

"It's weird when you get to the end of a tour… it's usually, as it is now, mixed feelings. I'm going home [to Stockholm, Sweden] tomorrow, exhausted, dirty and hungry. I miss my wife, my dog and my apartment. On the other hand, I'm sad because last night we said goodbye to some amazing new friends on the road. It's weird to feel both happy and gutted at the same time.

"We just did three really intense weeks supporting CARNIVORE in Europe. We do everything for ourselves and at times it's pretty hardcore. This time we didn't even have our seventh member, Lee, with us. We had some fucked up drives over the Alps, through the hills in Czech Republic, got ripped off on the French roads and barely made it to a couple of the shows because our van is so slow. One night and day, we drove 14 hours between Torino and Saarbrucken, got delayed by snow on top of the Alps and got to the show 30 minutes after we were supposed to start. Thankfully, CARNIVORE's wonderful tour manager Lotje pushed the show back for us, and Tom and Roy, their guitar and drum tech, helped us load in, unpack and set up and we ran in and played the show! It was a good show too! Even their sound guy Mark did our sound for us out of pure kindness. I wanted to kiss those guys for being there for us.

"The guys in CARNIVORE were unbelievable! Pete Steel is a legend. One of the funniest guys I have ever met, and as much as he constantly took the piss out of us 'limee bastards,' was a true gent. Joey Z and all the other guys, band and crew were amazing. I thought the shows might be a little hard for us, but generally the crowds were great for us. Not that we'd have cared anyway, but it's nice when people are nice.

"So I go home tomorrow both happy and sad.

"This tour confirmed in me what I've always loved about touring. I love the travelling and the playing and the partying and the good times. The bad times not so much… vans breaking down, getting lost in cities, the sleep deprivation and the lack of a good shower I could do without.

"I love making amazing new friends from all over the world. I like being able to travel on my free time all over the place and stay there for free.

"Christmas now! Love that shit too! See you on the road in 08!"

RAGING SPEEDHORN's latest CD, "Before The Sea Was Built", was released in September via SPV.

"Before the Sea Was Built" was recorded at Foel Studio in North Wales with producer Larry Hibbitt.

RAGING SPEEDHORN will support CARNIVORE on a European tour beginning on November 30 in Essen, Germany.

"We're playing our first ever show on the Isle Of Man (in England) on July 7 and since I guess not many people from the mainland will make it over and the venue is really small. Anyhoo, the good people putting the show together are streaming the show live!

You can catch the show online from around 8.30pm on the night. Supporting us will be AGE OF KINGS and BLACK ORCHID.

Raging Speedhorn Complete Work On New Album

RAGING SPEEDHORN guitarist Gareth Smith has issued the following update:

"We've just finished recording and mixing the new album. We've spent two weeks at the wonderfully isolated Foel Studio in North Wales, with Larry Hibbitt, recording ten songs.

"The studio was the perfect place to record such an album. Literally in the middle of nowhere, on the side of a huge valley, with no connection to the outside world. We cut ourselves away from society and worked day and night over 13 days. We're all really excited with what we've produced. Larry and his sidekick, Charlie, have done an amazing job in realising our vision for this record. More...

Murder One Call It Quits

MURDER ONE, the British band featuring vocalists Paul Catten (ex-MEDULLA NOCTE) and John Loughlin (RAGING SPEEDHORN), bassist Jules McBride (ex-PULKAS), guitarists Mark Seddon (ex-MEDULLA NOCTE) and Dan Marshall, and drummer Jamie Airns, has issued the following update:

"Today and for the long, forseeable future, MURDER ONE have called it a day. No argument, no bullshit 'musical differences'....we just cannot continue. We're bold enough to say... 'No-one gives a fuck about the band any more!'... and we can deal with that.

"As a unit, we've never been better friends, sounded better and the new material was shaping up to be fine, BUT after spending the last 2-3 years fairly inactive due to constant misguidance and lethargy, we felt enough was enough. We shall all be continuing in other projects.

"Being in a band can drain you all of your dignity and self respect in the end. Each member has been through this very experience before and we intend on making sure it doesn't happen again.

"To the people who stuck with us, we're eternally grateful.... And to those who wasted our time, and drained our enthusiasm and interest in something we truly believed in....thanks for fuck all."

Previously planned tour dates with Textures in late February are presumed cancelled due to the breakup.

As previously reported, Murder One singer Paul Catten nearly died during a routine appendectomy around Christmas of 2006, but has now recovered from the surgery.
