Burn Season Call It Quits

Jacksonville, Florida's BURN SEASON has called it quits. The group's vocalist Damien Starkey has issued the following statement on the matter:

"I'm sorry to break the news to everyone but we have officially broke up. After six years, two record deals, and over 40 recorded songs we feel that the band has run its course. All of us are still great friends and have no animosity within the group but have come to a point where it makes more sense to pursue other projects."

"We want to thank everyone across the country for all of your continued support and must tell you that I have had more fun out on tour with all of you than I've ever had in my life. This band has been my whole world for so long that it truly leaves an empty spot inside of me to think of it not existing anymore. But so be it."

"Bobby [Amaru, drums] and I are continuing to pursue music as vigurously as ever with Adam [Silk, bass] and Kevin [Renwick, guitar] possibly doing the same in the future. So look out for more music soon as I am heading in the studio this month to debut the dozens of demoed songs that I have. Bobby also has another project in the makings so look out for that as well."

"****, it really sucks to tell you guys all of this, but it had to be said. We love you guys and hope to see all of you at these two last shows. No matter where you live, if you can make it, we'd love to party one more time burn season style with you."

"The first show is Friday, May 25th at the first place weve ever played a show, Jack Rabbits. The city and location of the final show will be announced as the first one gets closer."

BURN SEASON's self-titled debut album was released in 2005 through Bieler Bros. Records.

I actually liked this band. They're like alt-metal. It's a shame to me but oh well, nothing I can do.
