As Blood Runs Black say they will release LP, tour
Five days after drummer Hector "Leche" De Santiago issued a "we are breaking up" statement, and two days after Leche said "Thanks for the memories" regarding the band, As Blood Runs Black has confusingly sent an email to select fans indicating that they aren't quite done yet. When word spread that ABRB was breaking up, many fans were angry because they had contributed to a crowdfunding campaign for the band's Ground Zero album. That backlash is what likely prompted the band to communicate the following via email to campaign contributors:
"There have been alot of questions recently regarding the future of the band and the release of Ground Zero. We wanted to reach out and let you know that Ground Zero will be coming out in the fall and you will be receiving your Indiegogo contributor perks before the public release of the album. We are putting together a worldwide tour schedule through next summer to support the album starting this fall in North America. Let us know where you want to see us play and we'll do our best to make it happen. "More detailed information is coming soon. Thank you for bearing with us through this challenging time, your support is what keeps us going."So, they will be releasing an album and touring, then breaking up? Or, they aren't actually breaking up? We're not sure. They might not be sure either.
