Gwen Stacy Disbands, Announces Final Show

American metalcore act Gwen Stacy has posted the following statement online in regards to the band's decision to call it quits and disband:

"After six years, nineteen countries, countless US tours, two albums, and an EP, Gwen Stacy has decided call it quits. We feel like now is the best time to end the band and pursue other options and directions in life. We would like to thank everyone who has been involved with the bands career over the years.

"There are too many people to thank everyone individually, but we would like to send a special thanks to past members TJ Sego, Cole Wallace, Bobby Oakley, Josh Rickard, Mike Bryant, and Chris Suter, our manager Mark LaFay, Carl Severson and everyone else at what was Ferret Music, Once Nothing, Life In Your Way, Poison The Well, Haste The Day, Vanna, and every other band that we’ve been able to share the road with.

"Thank you as well to anyone who came out to a show, bought a shirt or cd, sang along, let us crash on their floor, or was just supportive in any way.

"A few of the members will be starting new projects and we will be updating our pages as these projects start to unfold. We want to assure everyone that we are splitting up on good terms. We’re all excited to see what everyone has in store for their future endeavors. Be sure to keep checking back to follow up with what everyone is doing.

"Our last show will be Saturday November 20th at Rhino’s, 331 S Walnut St. Bloomington, IN. Please come out and get gross with us one final time.

"Thanks again for everything…
Brent, Geoff, Patrick, Matt, and Brett"

I dunno if anyone saw them in Mt airy MD like last week but that was clearly the end. Their singer going off calling kids out. Then the people running the show turned em off after a couple songs becuase he wouldnt stop swearing and being a d***.

@emosux: Went to a Ensiferum gig, and one of the opening bands called 'Riddare av Koden' had a EMO rage fit on stage. It sounded like everyone was out of tune, then the one guy pipes up about technical difficulties, then they start shouting at each other, resulting in a shoving match on stage. It was, pretty ghey. Thankfully they only played one song.

Gwen Stacy was not deathcore. A band like whitechapel is. Through The Eyes Of The Dead is another with more focus on death metal as well as Carnifex esp. their last cd. Suicide Silence has elements of deathcore as well. Gwen Stacy was hipstercore if anything.
