Chimaira breaks up

Not surprisingly, given the recent exodus of its members, Chimaira has called it quits after roughly fifteen years as a band. Here's the official word:
"After fifteen full blown ass ripping years, it is with great honor to announce the end of Chimaira. "Thanks to everyone that supported the group in any way shape or form. Everyone involved with the band from members to fans put their heart and soul into this project. "We achieved a lot. We bled a lot. It fucking ruled.

I appreciate the brevity of his statement.

anonymous 9/4/2014 2:59:15 PM

It's great when a band can break up without writing a short story as a press release. Too bad he had to say "ass ripping". Ha.

anonymous 9/4/2014 3:08:45 PM

Mark Hunter Matt DeVries Jason Hager Chris Spicuzza Andols Herrick would've been the best lineup because ROB ARNOLD SUCKS ASS!

Mark Hunter Jason Hager Matt DeVries Jim LaMarca Andols Herrick Chris Spicuzza This is the best lineup for Chimaira because ROB ARNOLD SUCKS MAJOR ASS!

Decent attitude towards the wacky end of this band. I was expecting some kind of crybaby statement about the pretty embarrassing way this band met its end. I'm relieved. I've grown tired of reading the standard sad bastard statement from bands breaking up. Every band breaks up, don't make it a chance to have everyone read your shitty memoirs.

faggot 9/4/2014 3:54:38 PM

You can't fire me, I QUIT!!!

faggot 9/4/2014 3:54:53 PM

They didn't dump me: I dumped them!!!

anonymous 9/4/2014 4:41:52 PM

Chimaira is not over they are just down again

anonymous 9/4/2014 6:45:53 PM

And in that instant of betrayal, the door closed and the lights came on and suddenly I could clearly see that you were no longer worth my tears

anonymous 9/4/2014 8:29:08 PM

I remember seeing this band on farmclub.com back in the ol' napster days of '99/'00. Damn I'm old.

anonymous 9/5/2014 3:26:14 AM

And they were selling $200 'lifetime fan club' packs at their tour in February. Free admission to any/all future chimaira shows for life. Soooo lol at whatever idiots bought that shit.

anonymous 9/5/2014 11:56:56 PM
