Missouri hardcore band Nervous Wreck has called it quits. The group has issued the following statement:
"Ok, so rather than go into a long rant about the demise of Nervous Wreck, I will just say that the band has run its course. It's time to move on. Ben was going to leave the band anyway since he moved for school, and Dustin had decided to leave the band for other reasons, and the rest of us decided that we didn't care to keep the band going without the original core line-up of the band. Upon deciding this, Ben and Dustin both decided to stay with us to do a final show and end the band properly.
"So...there will be a final show. When? We aren't sure yet. Where? We aren't sure of that either. Kansas City is lacking an all-ages venue right now so we really don't know where we would do it. The final show will also be the 'American Heart' record release show. Yes, the record will see the light of day. It will have the 7 song 'American Heart' EP, as well as the 5 songs from the 2005 demo. It will basically have every NW song ever written, minus the last 2 that we wrote but never recorded. The effort will be released by Disgorge Media, which is dustin's label.
"Please keep checking back with us about a date for the final show. Right now it all just depends on when the CDis done being pressed and all the artwork stuff is ready to go. Then we will book the show and go out with one last hurrah.
"Thanks to everyone for the support over the last 3 years!"
Rising Brighton metallers ARCHITECTS will part ways with frontman Matt Johnson at the conclusion of their headline tour on February 3rd, 2007. He will be replaced by fellow Brightonian Sam Carter, formerly a drummer with hardcore crew Nervous Wreck and indie-punks This City.
Matt Johnson, who has fronted the band since its inception in late 2004, is departing the ranks for personal reasons on very amicable terms, and has issued the following statement via the bands website:
"The last three years in Architects have been absolutely amazing, some of the best times I've had in my life and I wouldn't change that for the world. I'd like to thank everyone for their support, it means more to me than any of you could ever imagine. I'm moving onto other things in my life and wish the band and Sam all the best for the future."
New vocalist Sam Carter, 18, has already made onstage appearances during the bands headline tour at Johnson's invitation; the two frontmen sharing the mic on the track 'The Darkest Tomb'.
But Sam will now be joining Architects full time as they enter the final stages of pre-production for their second album, the follow up to 2006's acclaimed 'Nightmares' debut. "I'm really excited about this year," says Sam; "I know the boys are looking forward to a fresh start, and Matt has been really supportive of me joining, which has helped a lot. I can't wait to record the new CD - it's gonna be incredible."
Architects will be heading into Outhouse Studios, Reading with producer John Mitchell (Enter Shikari, Funeral For A Friend) in mid-March to lay down thirteen, as yet untitled tracks for the highly anticipated new album, which is tentatively scheduled for release in June 2007.
Architects have also just unleashed their debut video. Created by Sitcom Soldiers (Devil Sold His Soul, Secondsmile, Circa Survive, A Wilhelm Scream), the video is for the track 'In The Desert', and is due to hit the national music channels this month.
Missouri's Nervous Wreck, featuring former Saved By Grace and Eighteen Visions drummer Jason Shrout, will begin recording a new seven-song EP this week in Kansas City. Titled "American Heart," the release will feature two older demo tracks in addition to five new songs. The effort will be released late this spring via an undetermined label.
