Isis split

By | Published on Thursday 20 May 2010

After thirteen years and five albums, acclaimed progressive metal band Isis have announced that they will split when their current round of touring and the recording of one final EP has been completed.

In a statement, the band said: “Isis has reached an end. It’s hard to try to say it in any delicate way, and it is a truth that is best spoken plainly. This end isn’t something that occurred over night and it hasn’t been brought about by a single cataclysmic fracture in the band. Simply put, Isis has done everything we wanted to do, said everything we wanted to say. In the interest of preserving the love we have of this band, for each other, for the music made and for all the people who have continually supported us, it is time to bring it to a close”.

The band’s final show will be in Montreal on 23 Jun (the same city in which they played their first gig), before finishing work on their last batch of studio recordings for an EP release, and compiling live material for future release.
