Earth Crisis officially calls it quits

Just one month after Victory Records strongly denied rumors of an Earth Crisis breakup, the band has officially announced they're calling it quits. Here's a quote from the band "There are many reasons that we have come to this decision, but it is sufficient to say here that it was our time to leave Earth Crisis - a project we have immersed ourselves in for the past ten years. It was quite difficult for us to come to this decision, especially when we were at such a good point in our career. We suppose we have chosen to leave Earth Crisis behind at this point so as to preserve it in each of your memories (and ours) as a vital and vibrant force. Slither, we feel, is our best release to date. The singles that we released from it have been spinning regularly on commercial radio, and our video for Nemesis has aired on MTVX and many other programs. Over the course of our work in Earth Crisis, we have accomplished so much: from many tours in the U.S., to tours in Europe and Japan, to playing at the Ozz Fest, to performing for 120,000 people in Bogota, Columbia. And every person at every show, and every person that experienced our music, was exposed to our messages of human, animal, and earth liberation and our philosophy about veganism and straight edge. And we hope that we have encouraged some of these people to think about at least one issue from at least one song in a new way..." The band will be making their last appearance at Hellfest.
