With Passion to Play Last Show

With Passion have issued the following update on their myspace page:

"Yes, it's true. Sept. 22 is planned to be the last show we ever play as With Passion. Many of you seem very upset by this, but it is for the best and I will explain why...

We have been struggling to keep afloat in the music for at least 2 yrs now. We had high hopes that our new album would pull us out of that struggle, but instead it happened that our album was released with less than expected promo and distro and we ended up unable to even get on the road to support it. We have decided to cut our losses. Many of you are fans of our other/previous band Conducting From The Grave. John, Greg, and I have decided that we should continue again as CFTG and Steven will be joining us on bass. Former vocalist of CFTG, Drew, will be completing the line-up for the band. Fidel will also be returning to his previous band, Cyanide Era. We are now writing new material for Conducting From The Grave that should be posted online within the next couple months. We all believe that this decision is in our best interest as musicians and in our fans' best interest as well. We appreciate all of your support and we hope that all of you will continue to support us in these other musical projects."

"In summation, it seemed that two years ago when us CFTG dudes joined with Shaun and Mike that it was the best idea to solve both CFTG and With Passion's line up changes, but now since they have both quit and nothing is working out for us as far as tours and album promotion, it seems that this is the right time to let the name With Passion die. We will still continue to write metal together as Conducting From the Grave and play locally, but we don't plan on touring anytime soon. It's been good times and we appreciate all the support anyone has given to us and any previous line up of this band, and we hope to see as many of you at our last show as possible."

yeah I hear ya man, but honestly I think this is sorta for the best as there is no member on that CD in the band currently. Still, though, their newer stuff was even more insane.

thank whoever that conducting from the grave is getting back together. they were one of my all time favorite metal bands and when they broke up and i heard new with passion it was really good. but conducting from the grave was 100 times better than them and now will be a well known metal band for years to come.
