Although this has essentially been known for quite some time and the group has been inactive for many months, Joshua Fit For Battle has now officially acknowledged their demise with the following statement: "Since 1998, ten of my closest friends have been involved with me in creating something that was something larger then just ourselves. Through our music we reached thousands of people in the 5 years we've been together. And as we approach our 5 year birthday in March, it's safe to realize that what we had, is no more. It's a hard thing to come to grips with as it denotes an end of an era in our lives. but it has become obvious that we have moved on to other ventures. Other bands, other jobs, other things. To say we have broken up would be a rough, crude way to put it.. Not to sound tacky but i think as friends we'll never break up...So All I'm going to say is.. the members of Joshua Fit For Battle have all moved on. Thanks to all of you who have come out to see us play... bought a cd or a record, or fed us, put us up for the nite, or helped with a show." Over the years, the Delaware screamo (dare we use that word) group has released several splits and a full-length on Alone Records. As for the members themselves, guitarist Joshua Jakubowski is currently doing time in The Now, Hot Cross, and Superstitions Of The Sky while Larry Everett and former member Joe have a new band called Echo Constructor.
