The Wage Of Sin Breaks Up

Earlier this month The Wage Of Sin announced intentions to break up after 4 1/2 years together. During that time, the group released two albums with Immigrant Sun Records. Here's an excerpt of a statement by the band:

"After 4 1/2 years of being in The Wage of Sin, I can honestly say I have made some truly great and unforgettable memories and friends. And while I wouldn't give up the time I spent in this band for anything, at this point it does not make sense for us to keep the band going any longer. The girls have become very busy with their other bands: Rachel full time w/ Most Precious Blood, Vanessa w/ Infidel (formerly Rebel Alliance), and Laura w/ All for Nothing. Laura is also currently getting her Masters and working part-time, Vanessa is working, and I am currently working and traveling as a TV producer. Needless to say this has left us with very little time to dedicate to The Wage of Sin... We have been lucky to have shared some wonderful experiences and are happy about the things we have accomplished together- releasing two CDs, touring the US and Europe, having a video on Headbangers Ball and Much Music, and most importantly having built friendships with the people we have met along the way. But being that we have all committed to touring with other bands or working for the rest of the year, we feel we would just be dragging on if we continued to go out this rate of trying to squeeze in shows on those rare occasions when our four worlds happen to collide and allow us to do so... There are no bad feelings between us- we just all have our hearts in different places and support each other in each of our endeavors. Since we cannot give this band our full attention any longer, it's time to end it while we are still smiling."

The group will be three final shows in May:

5/13 Harrisonburg VA @ Captain Tees w/ Hoods, Donnybrook, more
5/14 Lexington KY @ Beaumont YMCA w/ Sink Of Swim, more
5/21 New York NY @ ABC No Rio w/ Locked In A Vacancy
