Old Wounds vocalist quits band

Kevin Iavaroni, frontman of New Jersey hardcore/metal act Old Wounds, has announced his departure from the band. Here is his statement:
"A time and place, and a million friendships. I'm sure some have heard that my time singing for old wounds is coming to an end. Nothing is sacred, and nothing lasts forever. I've decided it's my time to leave the group and focus on my career as a barber. I'm not giving up on punk and hardcore, I've got a few things in the works that can hopefully take shape soon and 100 things I still have to say. Thanks to all the bands that have shared the stage with us and I've grown to love.Thanks to anyone who has supported us while my version of the band existed. Thanks to anyone who put us up and gave us a place to stay. Thanks to anyone who permanently carved lyrics I wrote into there bodies. Thanks to anyone who came to a show and supported us in anyway. Honorable mention to Dave Kent, Don and Larry for putting up with with our bullshit and giving up your lives for however long to road dog with us. I will NOT be playing any last shows, and will NOT be doing any of the January shows. See you in the funny papers."

anonymous 12/6/2016 7:44:40 PM

This band should just break up.

anonymous 12/6/2016 7:53:32 PM

I wonder if he only knows how to do the hitler youth haircuts that were all the rage last year

anonymous 12/6/2016 9:02:59 PM

Cashed out after warped tour. Guess they need a new gimic

anonymous 12/6/2016 11:18:12 PM

Have fun doing your eyeliner and wearing your pleather pants dancing around some shitty New Jersey shopping center Supercuts pretending like you did anything that mattered as a "Vocalist" James Hart says to get off his dick, too.

anonymous 12/7/2016 1:57:43 AM

Ricky Hoover, is that you?

anonymous 12/7/2016 4:28:01 AM

Matt from New Heart here, I'm trying to stay relevant. Message me, my girlfriend is goth I'd fit right in.

anonymous 12/7/2016 4:49:49 AM

Kevin gaygario is out , Shane is fcking in.

anonymous 12/7/2016 5:26:38 AM

shame. that was a solid line up and stood for something. though you can make a decent living as a barber despite what lot of trolls think. my friend just bought his third building.

anonymous 12/7/2016 5:45:00 AM

I heard Lemontree has an amazing 401K.

anonymous 12/7/2016 6:09:22 AM

*Spelled "their" wrong*

anonymous 12/7/2016 6:13:30 AM

Lost interest in OW after they stopped doing the 'psychedelic hardcore' thing they did on their first couple releases. 11710 is a SICK song and they buried it with all their other old stuff. Shame.

anonymous 12/7/2016 6:54:59 AM

Hey guys, I'm gunna quit my band so I can go pursue my career in the oversaturated field of barbering. I'll be back in 6 months when I realize everyone is a fcking barber now

anonymous 12/7/2016 7:00:25 AM

though you can make a decent living as a barber despite what lot of trolls think. my friend just bought his third building. What does this mean? Nice sentence structure.

anonymous 12/7/2016 8:07:21 AM

" I've got a few things in the works that can hopefully take shape soon and 100 things I still have to say. " Gonna shave em into his clients heads now lol

anonymous 12/7/2016 8:08:46 AM

Career as a barber aka suckkkkin that D

anonymous 12/7/2016 8:10:22 AM

"Matt from New Heart here, I'm trying to stay relevant. Message me, my girlfriend is goth I'd fit right in." Thank you for this. Had me rollin.

anonymous 12/7/2016 9:25:31 AM

Kevin from OW here. By "quitting to focus on becoming a barber" I really mean, "cutting my penis off and turning it into a makeshift crease" to see if I can cash in on this pro-trans sensitivity in hardcore when I rejoin the band next month.

anonymous 12/7/2016 10:12:23 AM

Davey Havok from 2001 is stoked

anonymous 12/7/2016 11:11:59 AM

sanction LIHC here. you are all gays

anonymous 12/7/2016 1:10:52 PM

Rick Ta Life here - I've got tons of Old Wounds and Skrewdriver bootlegs in my trunk if anyone wants to buy some. Lol oi

anonymous 12/7/2016 3:10:47 PM

Meat eaters are stoked

fourthgradecocktease 12/7/2016 5:01:03 PM

I enjoy this band quite a bit but that James Hart comment is pretty spot on

old poons

anonymous 12/9/2016 12:13:22 AM

Well, he could either keep his lucrative job as frontman for a shitty, watered down style of music for people that suffer from ADD and gutter-palate, or, he can actually pay his bills. Decisions decisions. I'll take the Kid-n-Play erasertop. Bring it back.

anonymous 12/9/2016 6:57:41 PM

If this band doesn't get another queer or at least female singer to replace him I will no longer care

anonymous 12/10/2016 7:38:03 AM

Hardcore Joe here, i think I'm allergic to peanut butter.

anonymous 12/10/2016 7:52:06 AM

I saw them open for ETID recently and they were really kick ass live. And he doesn't seem near as douchey as you would expect.

anonymous 12/11/2016 11:04:15 PM

HATCHET WOUNDS. Does your pssy hurt baby boy? Couldn't handle it out on the road with the big kids? Dude was shook as fck this summer when they came thru Memphis. Local openers crushed the fcking venue before them and they hardly even talked to anyone. If you scared stay at the house homie/girl.

anonymous 12/12/2016 4:46:29 PM

I don't know who has a bigger head and thinks their band is more relevant Kevin or Chris. Old wounds is gay. Tourniquet is gay. Sanction is gays and rapists. NJHC sucks and so does Gregs wife.
