"The very hard decision to end Hemoptysis in its current form has been made. In the end it is the best decision to be able to move forward into the future both musically and personally.
"First of all, we can't thank our fans enough for the support they've given us. When Masaki and Travis started this band 7 years ago, they never dreamed they would accomplish all they have, and that success is due mostly to the support of our amazing fans. We really look forward to having them behind us as we move on to the next chapter of our music and careers.
"To all the amazing people who contributed funds to our Indiegogo campaign, you will be getting a refund because the new album we were working on will not be recorded. We have an email coming to you so please keep your eyes on your inbox. More...

WLM: Can you tell us about the stunning and frightening images on the art work of the cover?
Travis: The artwork is supposed to depict the title track of the album, “Misanthropic Slaughter.” We knew we wanted to continue using the beast we call “Vetis” on the artwork and we wanted Evil Dave of Incision Tattoo in Glendale, Arizona, to do the artwork. We dreamed up the idea of the beast for our EP, “Who Needs A Shepherd?” and Evil Dave did an amazing job with the artwork for that album so we couldn’t imagine using the beast idea for this album unless Evil Dave was the one creating it. We wanted Vetis to be in the sky as some anonymous person killed the last person on earth, while the bodies of the rest of humanity were piled up in the background. Evil Dave had a better idea where he would have the beast be the one doing the killing instead of some anonymous person. He drew people in various stages of dying and he made it his most detailed piece of art he has ever done!
WLM: In your opinion: Why doesn’t Hemoptysis have a major label record deal?
Masaki: Nowadays, most labels want to take every penny from bands and give zero tour support and it is just not worth it. We didn’t work this hard and come this far just to have a label rip us off and take everything we own and give us nothing in return. Many labels are ripping bands off more than ever and we will not sign a label contract just for the sake of “being a signed band”. If it happens it happens and if it doesn’t we are just going to keep moving ahead.
WLM: Is “desertcore” a real genre?
Masaki: Yes and no. Almost every band doesn’t want to be categorized into just one type of genre. Our sound is rooted in thrash metal but there are more elements to our music than that. Calling our music Desert Core was just us having fun with the idea of making our own genre. And hell why not, we live in Phoenix, Arizona.More...
