Allerjen Calling It Quits, Announces Final Show

U.K. act Allerjen has posted the following message online about calling it quits and lining up a final show:

"This is not easy to say, so here it goes..... After over 10 amazing years and many, many gigs up and down the UK, Allerjen are sad to announce that the band is calling it a day. The decision comes after much thought, many conversations and is certainly a mutual split, definitely not down to 'musical differences.'

"The most important thing about Allerjen has been the people and friendship, and that's how it'll stay! It's probably how we've outlasted most bands on the scene! Always best to leave on a high and nothing will ever top a Download Festival appearance to be honest, and was a day that none of us will ever forget.

"We do, of course, have many people/bands to thank for their help/support/friendship over the years so hold yer breath, here goes!

"All the love and support of our long suffering Allerjen widows over the years, our wives and girlfriends. The massive support of one guy since the beginning - Sir Luke Hayhurst Take a bow! The guys in Jusure/A Moment Lost, especially Louis Jeffries and Matt Matt Matt Matt Matt Jackson. The amazing Man Must Die. Kim Bell, thanks for all the support! All the chaps in Sevenyearsdead/Subhuman Race Pete, Jez, Nuno and G. Two of the greatest bands ever to grace the Metal scene, and very good friends The Inbreds and FourWayKill. Mike Hyslop and Stephen Lambert of the mighty Scumface. The Damnation Festival organisers, Jim Beerman and everyone involved with Beermageddon. The fans, the people who bought merch and gave us your hard earned money! And finally........Anyone we've missed, sorry, just anyone helped the Aller-train keep rollin'. Thank you!

"We have been proud to support and share the stage with many awesome (and favourite) bands too, at some great venues including: Sevenyearsdead, Scumface, Man Must Die, Jusure/ A Moment Lost, Forever Never, The Inbreds, FourWayKill, Black River Project, Subliminal Fear, Enemo J, Displacement, Lazarus Syndrome, Seven Deadly, Omnium Gatherum, Rise To Remain, Skindred, Biomechanical, Profane, Sepultura. If we have forgotten anyone, many apologies.

"Our final show will now be in Manchester at Grand Central on Thursday 16 May supporting Bull Riff Stampede, and also playing is the brutal Derision. We would like as many of you as is humanly possible to pack out the venue to bid us farewell, so clear your schedule for that date! We know where you live and will definitely come and find you should there be any feeble excuses for non attendance!

"Monumental thanks for 10 years of utter silliness from your favourite clowns, lotsa love xxxx"
