Dead Eyes Always Dreaming break up

Sunday, July 07, 2019 7:34 PM PT

Michigan metal band Dead Eyes Always Dreaming have called it quits after roughly five years together. The group offered no explanation for their break-up, though recent revelations regarding the criminal history of drummer Spencer Robinson are apparently to blame.

On the same day Dead Eyes Always Dreaming disbanded, Michigan Metal Fest officially cut ties with Robinson, who co-founded the fest. Current festival owner Steve Maple issued the following:

"Due to a situation out of our control, effective immediately we will be parting ways with one of our founders, Spencer Robinson. This has been agreed upon by all of our staff as the right thing to do for the festival moving forward.

"Since the birth of this event we have relied all of you to help us grow and establish ourselves as one of the best festivals in the area. We need all of your support more than ever now as we lost a very important member of our team.

"Please understand that we have the upmost LOVE and RESPECT for the SCENE who built us. We cannot always choose our path but we CAN choose to make the very best of what we have and go the distance."
