From A Second Story Window Breaks Up

As recent rumors have suggested, From A Second Story Window has indeed called it quits. Formed in 2002, the group has put out several releases through Black Market Activies. The following statement has been issued:

"The past several years for us as From A Second Story Window have been quite a roller coaster ride. We have watched trends come and go, looked on as people grew in and out of an ever undulating "scene", and had the chance to watch something we love, our music, grow into an expression we can all truly be proud of. However, the life in a band is much like those very roads we travel down on every tour; hills leading up, followed by valley's dipping downward towards vast, level planes where things begin to feel stagnant and a bit too calm. Then around every corner is a new fad or statement that you can either grow with or simply step aside and let it be what it is, knowing that you are no longer connected at all anymore. For us, with this changing musical market and its inhabitants, it is simply our time to step aside and let the flow continue on without us. It is time for us to venture down new avenues of creativity and to find new things to enrich our lives fully. From A Second Story Window was something that gave us all hope and pride in our small part of the musical world, but with economical woe's pulling us down, and changes in attitude towards the entire movement of "heavy" music, it just seems right to call it quits and move on in our own ways.

"Please accept our deepest thanks to everyone out there who has ever helped us out, made it to our shows, partied with us afterwords (or before, ha ha), and most importantly listened to our music and truly cared about it as much as we did and still do. This is not an end for us as musical people, just an end for us as a group called From A Second Story Window, so be looking for little projects that any of us may do for fun in the future. Again, this entire trip has been a roller coaster ride, and I know that none of us are put out what-so-ever that we bought tickets and got in line! Thanks again to everyone out there, we've had a blast!"

It's shame to hear this news but really I think they made a good decision. FASSW were a great band when they started, there debut EP was full of energy and insanity. However following there albums to the present one really shows how there sound was gradually being molded into the sounds of other well marketed metalcore bands. (eg the clean vocals) To me there prescience live and there attitude off stage didn't really match to this criteria, so it was like they were faking it on the new record. All the band members have great talent and to me they were my first choice along with Sikth, Eden Maine and Ion Dissonance when it came this genre. All these no hoper's like Suicide Silence will only collapse in on themselves when these labels reject them because of $$. I say to anyone out there choose your metal wisely because there are many bands and labels in this genre for the wrong reasons.

Now playing: ISIS - Sawblade EP

these guys had it hard from the beginning, I'm surprised they made it this far. Sucks that they could never get a break, hope they do good in whatever else they're going to be doing

The metal band "scene" is a joke. It will eventually kill itself. They began to do something original with their music which made them stand apart. I personally appreciated them more for that. Their new sound was perfect and these kids only care about the pit. The industry is rough but I say f*** it. Do what you want. Play music that makes you happy. It sucks theyre gone. I felt like they were just about to take this new sh** and run with it.
