Dour Cursiva Calls It Quits, Members Form New Band

Rhode Island metal band Dour Cursiva is calling it quits and three of its members will be forming a new band. In the bands own words:

"Dour Cursiva is calling it quits. Due to recent member changes, which were left unannounced until now, along with a general refocus of musical direction, the rest of us remaining decided that it would be best to retire the Dour Cursiva name. We leave this project with no ill will toward anyone, and nothing but the best experiences behind. We have no plans of playing a final show as Dour Cursiva.

"Thank you to David Cavalieri, Kevin Pires, Joe Valerio, Eric Zabinski, and Josh Aguiar for their effort and involvement in Dour. Thank you to Ethan and Hold True Recordings for all of his hard work and dedication in supporting the release of "Voices Through Wires." We are very proud of that album and encourage you to pick it up through Ethan at http://www.holdtrue.com. Thanks to Ian van Opijnen for his help in making that album sound the way it does.

"We could thank a million and one people and bands for supporting us, encouraging us, hooking us up with shows, creating artwork or taking pictures for us, or just being solid friends throughout the whole deal. It would be long-winded and self-indulgent. So, thank you to everyone who supported us or shared in this experience with us.

"Expect a new website with a sort of retrospective of our various stages of a band to be posted when get down to that."

Dour Cursiva was:

Jake Neves - V
