As They Burn Calling It Quits

French outfit As They Burn has issued the following announcement about deciding to call it a day:

"We are deeply moved to announce the end of the band. As They Burn was an amazing way to let our artistic energy flow for a fabulous seven years. We lived and grew up in rhythm with what is for us much more than a musical adventure – a real humane endeavour which embraced a lot of people.

"It is because we honour and respect you guys that we have taken this difficult decision. Up until now, we have provided you with ourselves in the best possible way and we never want to put that aside. As we are now, we are incapable of providing you with the As They Burn you expect us to be. And it is impossible for us, musically and artistically to be less than what we expect and aspire to be, and we will NEVER accept to be half of ourselves.

"By taking this decision we value honesty above become a band that we would never want to be. It is time for us to follow our own independent paths, each cradled by the memories of the past years and the brotherly love that unites all six of us. And it is the same desire of honesty and same willpower that we have decided to part ways with you guys on stage and not by a simple press release!

"We will be playing several farewell shows in 2015 so we can meet one last time on stage (Booking contact: Milton@onlytalentproductions.com).

"From the bottom of our hearts, thank you! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you! Through this message we would also like to thank: our mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters - our families for allowing us to go after and live a dream. We would also like to thank Bastien Jacquesson, our sound engineer and ally on stage, who brought us peace of mind and confidence. A devoted man we have always been able to count on, a real pillar. You are the 6th member of the band but you are also above all our brother, our big brother. More...

Will, Love Life is heavier, more mature, atmospheric and darker than our previous album, but also very positive and still full of symbolism."

Machinist Bastien Jacquesson also issued the following statement about the artwork: “The pyramid on the cover is a mystical sign, a sign of spiritual elevation and knowledge. It is also linked with Aleister Crowley and the Thelema mythology which always been a big influence for us. The cover art photo was taken by our great friend Anthony Dubois who's also known as Meshuggah's official photographer and French painter Charlotte Mollet drew each of the eleven signs that represent the eleven tracks of the record. Each symbol has a special meaning linked with the song's lyrics.”
