As Blood Runs Black break up

Tuesday, August 12, 2014 11:13 AM PT

Los Angeles, CA deathcore band As Blood Runs Black has apparently called it quits after roughly ten years of existence. Earlier this year the band announced that they had finished recording a new album; no word yet on what will become of the material. Drummer Hector "Leche" De Santiago had the following to say:

"After YEARS of uphill battles, dealing with legalities, politics, getting robbed blind by our ex label, left for dead and getting shelved by the industry... I'm here to to say all things come to an end. As Blood Runs Black was born in my parents basement and has been the biggest part of my life since 2003. She was my daughter. We had a dream and we ran as far as we could with it. Forever in debt and grateful for the band of brothers (past and present) who risked their lives, contributed, and truly risked it all for the love and passion of music. We literally gave and lost everything in this storm. THANKS to all who supported and gave us a chance to share our music with you guys. We were all broken kids and you guys (and gals) gave us a chance to live. THANK YOU!!"

I hope they get ass cancer

8/12/2014 11:24:44 AM
They crowd funded the "new record". Sounds like a quick cash grab

8/12/2014 11:24:51 AM
I guess just pretending to be in a band is too much of commitment for some.

8/12/2014 11:34:21 AM
"I hope they get ass cancer" hahahahha I fcking love this website

8/12/2014 11:35:44 AM

Band no one realized made it past 2010 breaks up.

8/12/2014 11:43:27 AM
they finished their new album but theyre not releasing it? lol

8/12/2014 11:45:14 AM
This guy makes it sound like they played all of their shows in Iraq.

8/12/2014 11:54:30 AM
After all those shitty years, they finally decide to do the world a favor????? Dooooooshbags to tha core.

8/12/2014 11:59:16 AM
They realized they were only at the right place at the right time and were actually pretty mediocre in reality. Also see Elysia for same results

8/12/2014 12:14:20 PM
God damn tree.

8/12/2014 12:21:15 PM
"Another band, a fallen dream"

8/12/2014 12:23:27 PM
there are plenty of burgers to be flipped

8/12/2014 12:24:04 PM
2007 is super bummed.

8/12/2014 1:12:38 PM
had no idea they even made it past 2008

8/12/2014 1:15:31 PM
The ex-label beatd your daughter. Must be tough... Now you have to get a real job.

8/12/2014 1:40:35 PM
lol this whole site is trollbait.

As Blood Runs Black's Allegiance will live forever.
One of the few albums that helped define a genre.

8/12/2014 1:45:01 PM
As who does what?

8/12/2014 2:19:21 PM
older shit had some jams that hold up, but 'right place right time' comment is dead on. 2006-2009 was such a strange mini era

8/12/2014 2:30:03 PM
Back to your parent's basement then

8/12/2014 2:37:08 PM
fck yes - how about that kickstarter money...errrrrr?

8/12/2014 2:45:16 PM
California doesn't have basements thought...

8/12/2014 2:45:39 PM

8/12/2014 3:11:11 PM
Then right out of the blue she sends me a John Deer letter

8/12/2014 3:39:28 PM
I remember playing spring breakdown fest in 2008 and watching these rock stars parade around Barron and brag about all the money he makes them and the things he gives them.

8/12/2014 3:43:18 PM
I can almost guarantee they do a reunion tour in about a year when they all spectacularly fail to get real jobs.

8/12/2014 4:00:50 PM
Robin Williams is stoked.

8/12/2014 4:31:27 PM
This is the best news on all of Lambgoat. Nick is a gay, Leche is a gay, Dan is a gay. fck all of these gays.

8/12/2014 4:34:24 PM
thanks for stealing fans money...and lol @ anyone who donated to these bums.

8/12/2014 4:37:18 PM
and not a single thing of value was lost that day

8/12/2014 4:37:22 PM
There are many things I don't understand. I am 49 years old and I love these guys! I will miss them. How the fock these guys didn't have a solid record deal I don't know. Some how bansds like Barrier and Erra have them, but these guys and Conducting from the Grave don't. It's just focked up.

8/12/2014 5:06:30 PM
All ya'll gays just jelly. Anyways, ABRB died when the 2 original guitarrists left.

8/12/2014 5:29:57 PM
as blood what??? who cares about them???????????/

8/12/2014 6:07:41 PM
Hope to see you making my sandwich at subway. Just a heads up, I order double meat, just like your mom.

8/12/2014 6:10:02 PM
Wait, your 49 and you like ABRB? You need help sir. If I were a doctor I would write you a prescription for old guy metal pronto. Start with a lethal dosage of ACDC good luck my friend.

8/12/2014 6:10:03 PM
Cracked up so many times while scrolling. Thank you for the entertainment

8/12/2014 6:14:12 PM
The least bit jelly, I can shit these crappy metalcore riffs out of my ass like theres no tomorrow. Listening to that Bring the Motherfcking Ruckus part on In dying Days is unbearable. I guess you like people shitting in your ears. I understand.

8/12/2014 6:57:11 PM
Wasn't the album kick started like, 2 years ago? Still nothing has surfaced but the fact that it's completed and they're no longer a band. Dafuq-u.

8/12/2014 6:58:59 PM
I heard they've already got back together

8/12/2014 8:31:37 PM
Not true. They're announcing an album tomorrow. You've all been played. Pathetic marketing technique because no one cares about their shitty band

8/12/2014 9:15:51 PM
^if that's true, I'm gonna shit out a frog

8/12/2014 10:03:51 PM
sick now ima start a band and name as blood runs black. it will be a male band. ima holla achu

8/12/2014 10:06:12 PM
As who does what?


8/13/2014 12:18:50 AM
Where does the 25k go?

8/13/2014 1:15:55 AM
What about my fcking kickstarter perks you buttholes.

8/13/2014 4:25:03 AM
...and nobody bats a fcking eye

8/13/2014 4:28:18 AM
Also Tony Brummel called. he says he'll save your band and sign you guys the minute he grows some hair

8/13/2014 5:42:26 AM
This is what happens when you replace hardworking mexicans with lazy americans.

8/13/2014 6:19:34 AM
Worst band name ever. Buh-bye froots!

8/13/2014 7:24:19 AM
At least release the new record for people to hear?

8/13/2014 7:29:08 AM
Saved a kid from falling into a chair at one of their shows. Oh well, nothing of value was lost.

8/13/2014 11:18:55 AM
Sometimes ya gotta know when to hang it up.

8/13/2014 5:33:46 PM
Instinct is so inspirational. I listen to it while lifitng. Tiss a sad day

8/13/2014 5:47:29 PM
This band made it past a whole decade & had more changes in line up than guys own boxers. Good for them, here's to your typical lamb goat comment cancer, van flip, etc. At least Robin Williams can enjoy 2006's myspace hits!!!!!

8/13/2014 11:58:37 PM
All i read was "broke" "parent's basement" "quit" ans i knew it was shit

8/14/2014 10:03:27 AM

Cool story bro. Any links to your kick ass band with all the killer riffs we've all been waiting for???

didn't fcking think so candyass.

8/14/2014 3:56:06 PM
Fallen figure was a better band.
too bad those guys were never signed.well they could have been but they turned down an offer. that would have been good for em.

8/14/2014 7:16:55 PM
What a surprise, yet another band beatd by Baron "Chicken Hawk" Bodnar to a point of breaking up and having nothing to show for the past 10 years of their lives. At this point people need to let Baron know he's not welcome in this business and to stop thinking he's a gangster. You should tell him!

Here's his numbers 8186054286 and 8188360654 don't believe me? call!

8/15/2014 12:36:52 AM
Godamnit, my fcking kickstarter money! Ugh this is VERY unwelcome news :/ wallet flip

8/15/2014 12:32:23 PM
Where's Sonic at? Chris Blair is NOT stoked. Sal's hair just started growing back too....ugh

8/15/2014 1:48:12 PM

8/16/2014 12:29:42 PM

8/16/2014 12:32:16 PM
