New York progressive death metallers, Grey Skies Fallen, have posted the following update on their myspace page regarding their decision to go on hiatus:
"This is a trying time for the band. The four of us have pretty much agreed to put Grey Skies Fallen on the back burner. It's been an up and down eleven years; mostly down."
"People in bands know the sacrifice that goes into it..the effort, and the emotional strain. I think all of that has caught up to us. We need to step back and take a breather."
"We have tried very hard to make good music for you guys to enjoy; we've even resorted to giving it away for free online. The reaction from that has been great. I am thrilled that our music has gotten out to many people that otherwise would have never heard us. However, real life takes precedence. We can't continue to spend money on the band like we did when we were 20, and with no outside support, (record labels, distro's) it's hard to continue." More...

"Ok, so we've decided to post all three of the Grey Skies Fallen albums on our website. If you're interested, they are yours to download free of charge.
Being unsigned for 11 years has been brutal. It's hard to get your shit out there, so what better way than to give the shit away?

Grey Skies Fallen post the following on Myspace:
We are happy to announce the release of a brand new track, 'The Visionary.' It's posted on our Myspace page for your listening enjoyment.
This track is basically a sneak preview of our next album, which we are currently writing. We wanted to get a new song out there to show fans the direction we're heading in, and to also show that we are moving forward after releasing our latest album this past March.
We greatly appreciate all of your support, and we hope you enjoy the new song. Feel free to share any comments with us.
Also, tonight we are performing LIVE on WSOU FM here in the New York/New Jersey area. If you are out of the listening area, tune into www.wsou.net for the live webcast. The show begins at 10, but we start playing at about 11. Should be a goot time.
New York metal band GREY SKIES FALLEN has begun pre-production for their fourth full-length album. Tentatively self-titled, this album will be an eclectic mix of styles from all three of their prior records; this time with an emphasis on the heavier elements. Demoing of select songs will commence early summer, allowing the band to debut these tracks on their MySpace page before recording the album.
GREY SKIES FALLEN owns and operates their own label, Xanthros Music. However, without the backing of a "real" record label, the band is limited in terms of traveling for tours due to financial constraints. The band hopes that the recent release of "Two Way Mirror", combined with the brand new demo songs, will open some eyes of record labels.
GREY SKIES FALLEN continues to play shows in the New York City area, with their next show falling on May 11 at the legendary Continental in Manhattan . This show will be the first one to feature new bassist Mary Saragoussi. Mary replaces longtime bassist Jimmy White who recently parted ways with the band after six years of tireless service. Jimmy will continue to assist the band with the recording of the demo tracks in his home studio.
