Design the Skyline dropped by Victory, breaks up

Friday, July 26, 2013 8:28 AM PT


Corpus Christi, Texas "experimental deathcore" band Design the Skyline has called it quits. Formed in 2007 (originally as Extra Large Kids), the group released one album with Victory Records.

Rumors had been circulating recently that Design the Skyline had been dropped by Victory, which we confirmed yesterday, but today comes word that the band has called it quits. Frontman and co-founder Eric Azure had the following to say:

"My heart is heavy as a dawn sets towards a new sunrise. 4 years ago my band Design The Skyline formed from the passion of 7 individuals with the goal of creating a unique open-minded experience in a world bound by normalities. While the goal was ultimately reached and many loving, dedicated fans rose and stand by us, we have decided to part ways and begin a new chapter in our music careers.

"Thank you to all the fans who supported us, fought with us and will continue to do so! I have endless love and appreciation for you! I will never forget all the messages from everyone saying I saved lives, opened eyes, inspired, and helped push through the struggles of life. Though I am just a human like everyone else, it's our voices, and communication that bounds us and together we help eachother go beyond the stars! My will, passion, and focus is stronger than ever before and a project like no other will rise from the ashes. Together we will change the world!

"More information to come very soon. The future is ours!"

Not even sure who this band is, but he is waaay to fcking optimistic. A band playing any sort of heavy music should sound like a motivational speaker.

'ommunication that bounds us' Shouldn't that be 'binds us'?

Victory is capable of dropping bad bands? I thought it was their business practice to only sign bad bands these days.

anonymous
7/26/2013 10:13:04 AM
This band had some of the worst music known to man. It was a clusterfck of usless garbage.

Im not even sure why Victory thought it was a good idea to even sign them....

Im ashamed to be from the same state as these gays. I wish they were all in the World Trade Center on the morning of 9-11-01. I hope every baby that these gays ever make is stillborn or retarded. I hope they get locked inside a Hot Topic while someone burns it to the ground. I hope they pull over to help a stranded motorist and when they get out to do so, a big truck hauling gasoline hits them and explodes in the process.

This is Falafel Guy.

No sweat on the tip. I suggest getting it on the flatbread. Toasted.

I don't know if it's available everywhere yet. I live in a small(ish) town and only two of of our 4 Subways offer the falafel.

Anyways. These guys/girls?/dummies were to old to be doing this trash anyways.

Smell ya later

Gets signed by Sumerian records and three days later shoots a music video, headlines over huge bands and makes a shitload of money because why would Sumerian Records ever support and good talent on their roster. Cocaine snorting sphinx is stoked.

I quite liked Nevaeh. They were making slow but steady progress and I think it's a shame it's ended early for them. Still, they're young so I wouldn't be surprised to see the members popping up elsewhere (Matt Ryan already has loads of stuff in the works, James Lemos seems to be working as a producer at Victory now, Ethan's got another band, etc.). They got far too much hate for their appearance though.

anonymous

No, they didn't get enough hate. They should've got even more than they already dide
