Warning Officially Calls It A Day

British doom metal legends Warning have confirmed that the band will be coming to an end. Speculation of the bands demise had been circulating for sometime and founder Patrick Walker today confirmed the split with the following announcement:

"The decision to discontinue Warning has been both a pain and a purgation to me. For the past two years or so, Warning has been a considerably important part of my life, what with travelling and playing shows, writing new music and a gradual but increasing interest in the band, largely helped by Cyclone Empire’s rereleasing of both records and making them for the first time easily obtainable to people.

"However, I started the band in 1994. I was a different person when I began playing with Warning; I had different musical objectives; different ideals; different influences and inspirations. Now in order to make music that retains some semblance of integrity and wholeness I realise I need to move on. This shouldn’t be thought of as 'the end' of something; I have, after all, been the sole remaining original member of the band in its most recent line-up for almost a year now; in this respect Warning is little more than a band name. So before I complete work on what will be the material for the next album, I need a new band; a new context within which to work.

"I hope people continue their interest in my music, and all further information concerning it will be officially made known through Cyclone Empire with whom I am very happy to say I will continue to work as originally proposed, so please look no further than these pages for more news."

It saddens me that there will be no more Warning material, their second album is a doom metal masterpiece, actually scratch that, it's a musical masterpiece, period. I will definitely keep my eye on this guy though, hopefully he will go on to releasing something worthwhile under a different concept.
