The Gates Of Slumber Calling It Quits

Karl Simon of U.S. doom metal act The Gates of Slumber has posted the following message online at the Hellride Music Forum about the band calling it quits:

"Some of you may have noticed that Jason quit The Gates of Slumber this past week.

"So, yeah. it's done. I always said I'd never go on doing TGoS without Jason, I don't think anyone ever really believed it, but yeah, it's done. I did start the band, but McCash has been my best friend for the last 20 years, the last 10 in this damn band. He wrote amazing music and was a killer person to be around on the road.

"Somewhere about 3 years back shit started to change, and it's ended with him quitting. I'm sure he needs the break, probably from me... I'm starting to *kind of* get the hint.

"So yeah. It's done."

Although there hasn't been an official announcement from any of the bands involved, The Gates of Slumber's tour with Church of Misery is presumably cancelled.

What's Next?

The church of misery tour is still on without the gates. Yeah this is a bummer but im sure there all going to bounce back with new projects. There still is one great indy doom called Apostle Of Solitude that will carry the torch and stoner rock indy has Devil To Pay. I am sad because im good friends with Karl and Bob.
