German melodic hardcore band I Defy is breaking up after nearly ten years together. Here's a statement from the band:
"We had great and unforgettable moments and many, many great shows in the last nine years. But due to personal priorities and responsibilities we feel that it is unable for us and unfair and unprofessional to the rest of the world to maintain a band status while not actively pushing this band as is necessary.
"We would like to thank all the people who in one way or another took interest in our music and helped us along the way, supported us while playing and putting out our records. Many thanks to Reflections Records without whom we would have never started this band, Muttis Booking for booking and also Andy at Thorp Records. Last but not least - the kids!
"As we are all involved in other projects (They Want A Flughafen, Guts N' Glory) we will be around in one way or another. Stay in touch and watch out for new band-projects!
"We will play a farewell show in Hannover at Mephisto on the 30th of April with Society's Parasites and Short Fuse. Make sure to make this an unforgetable event!"
Thorp Records has officially signed German melodic hardcore band I Defy. The band has previously released material with Reflections Records and will release their Thorp debut on July 25th. A track from the upcoming album can be downloaded here.
