As They Burn breaking up

Monday, January 05, 2015 12:35 PM PT

French metal band As They Burn (Victory Records) has called it quits after roughly eight years together. The group has issued the following statement:

"We are deeply moved to announce the end of the band. As they burn was an amazing way to let our artistic energy flow for a fabulous seven years. We lived and grew up in rhythm with what is for us much more than a musical adventure – a real humane endeavour which embraced a lot of people. It is because we honour and respect you guys that we have taken this difficult decision.

"Up until now, we have provided you with ourselves in the best possible way and we never want to put that aside. As we are now, we are incapable of providing you with the As They Burn you expect us to be. And it is impossible for us, musically and artistically to be less than what we expect and aspire to be, and we will NEVER accept to be half of ourselves.

"By taking this decision we value honesty above become a band that we would never want to be. It is time for us to follow our own independent paths, each cradled by the memories of the past years and the brotherly love that unites all six of us. And it is the same desire of honesty and same willpower that we have decided to part ways with you guys on stage and not by a simple press release! We will be playing several farewell shows in 2015 so we can meet one last time on stage.

"From the bottom of our hearts, thank you! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!"
