Eighteen Visions Breaks Up

Orange County, California rock (one-time metal) band Eighteen Visions has called it quits. Formed in 1996, the band released several albums with Trustkill Records before jumping to Epic Records in 2004. Bassist Mick Morris sent Lambgoat a band statement:

"After several years of touring and quite a few album releases we have decided that it is time to go our seperate ways. We have been a band for a very long time and feel good about everything we were able to accomplish. At this point in our lives and our careers we feel its time to move on to something fresh and new. Whether it be music, touring or just being at home to live and enjoy life. We would like to thank all of our fans, friends and families for all of the great support over the years. We would also like to thank all of the bands we have shared the stage with and everyone who has ever worked with the band, opened a door or reached out a hand. We will be playing our final two shows in April. One in San Diego and one in Orange County. Come rock with us one more time."

As far as Eigheen Visions go, all I have to say is this:

Who the fu ck are Eighteen Visions? I think they meant Eighteenyearold Virgins.

Good riddance. Let's hope that Flyleaf is next. Or Breaking Benjamin or Chevelle or any of those suburban-rock fag bands.

That would be so cool, a plane full of emo bands screaming before hitting an underground volcano and being singed and burned in lava, then satan takes there souls and plays polka music for them all hours all day, while they are being beaton with mallots and maggots eat away thier spirit flesh...sweet

And its not like this was a legendary band anyway, im sure Avenged 7 gay is more metal than these guys to get emo kids crying that there world is over. Grow up, they sucked, thats why they are no more.

hahaha, nice way of contradicting yourself. you said they were kickass and then right after that you said they were c***suckers with small weiners and couldnt play an instrument for sh*t. and then you went even further with "f*ck all those who object to this". you cant live in this world with such weak arguments, in fact, it was so weak and bad of a post that it seemed that you hated them, which was a point you were arguing against. f*ck man, go take an adult special ed class and relearn your english...
