Singaporean grindcore trio Wormrot recently wrapped up a six-week tour of Europe, which culminated in a performance at Obscene Extreme festival in the Czech Republic.

Following the tour, the band revealed plans for taking a break from touring for a few years to attend to personal commitments. Contrary to rumours however, Wormrot is not currently disbanding and plans to return with a new album in 2013 or 2014, with plans to tour again in 2015.

Wormrot vocalist Arif Rof has issued the following statement:

"In regards to our post about taking a break on Facebook, some people misunderstood that we have broken up right after the recent tour. But that is definitely false information. We are taking a break from TOURING as we have other personal commitments to attend this time around. It's definitely not because of what happened to us during the tour (ripped off, abandoned etc.). That was part and parcel of touring. No big deal and it's probably a dead fucking issue now anyway. NONE of these relate to why we are taking a break.

"We played a couple of new songs on the tour from the next album. And still writing as we speak. So calm down, get your facts straight. All you need to know is that we are still very much alive and still writing new material for the upcoming album. We have been touring four years straight, every year. So we need a breather before we rage again across the globe. I said it before and I will say it again: WORMROT IS NOT DEAD. PERIOD."
