Merauder breaking up

Friday, January 8, 2016 6:10 AM PT

The future doesn't look particularly bright for veteran NYC hardcore/punk/metal outfit Merauder. Last night band co-founder, frontman, and sole remaining original member Jorge Rosado offered up this:

"This is one if the hardest things im about to do... I've been thinkin about this for a while... And I'm pretty much 100% on this... like I said before, time for new things. Nothing against any of my fans for you're da reason I've lasted so long. But I hate da industry full of fake motherfuckers n which is now also da attitude of some of da old n new bands. Plus I've been doin Merauder for too long time to end it. Only one Merauder n it's da one I've created n brought to a level dat others couldn't. I'm sick of da haters of who suck their own dicks fo da half ass shit they do. And sucking hard for they most likely have da tiniest dick, lol! Too much Rock Star bullshit!! It's not needed or was ever apart of underground music n especially in Hardcore!! Well it's all new age shit u can either follow dat shit to nowhere or do your research n do it da way it was. And bring it back but I dont see dat ever happening. So dat's why I'm startin fresh with Akani n if u supported me for what I did in Merauder, then u wont be dissapointed when u hear Akani. But I thank everyone from da bottom of my heart for all da support n great times we shared on n off stage. You guys are my life n are everything I am today. Thank you, thank you, but I'm not out!!! just starten a new n hopefully yah will enjoy it! Love yah!! .... Oh it's also our 20th yr anniversary this year so all da shows we do will be our last ones definitely."

Our assessment of this somewhat cryptic statement is that Merauder will be put to rest this year following some final shows. Meanwhile, Rosado will continue on with his other band, Akani.
