Conducting From The Grave calling it quits

Thursday, October 22, 2015 9:23 AM PT


California deathcore/death metal band Conducting From The Grave will officially disband following some farewell shows in early 2016. Formed in 2003, the put released a handful of records, including two with Sumerian Records. Here is their statement:

"Hey we have been putting off announcing this now for a long time, because goodbyes are never easy, but we are no longer an active band. It may not come as a surprise seeing as how we went from playing 200 shows a year 5 years ago to 3-5 shows a year recently. The long story short of it is much the same as most underground metal and hardcore acts - we all grew up before our band was able to achieve any realistic financial stability for 5 people to pay rent and raise families on.

"That being said however, we want to send off with as much of a proper bang as our adult lives will allow. During the month of January 2016 we are open to booking weekend farewell shows in the West Coast region. Promoters can email graveconduct@yahoo.com if interested in booking us in their city.

"Speaking as the main writer for the band however, this is not an end for me but a new beginning. I consider myself a lifer in this music thing, and as such have been working on a forming a new band called Wastewalker with the ex singer of Alterbeast. Ive also been lucky and grateful to land touring guitar gigs in Europe with Hoods last year and currently Shai Hulud (we are out now on the east coast). So if you are a fan of what Conducting From the Grave has created, fear not, there will be plenty more songs with similar style for you to jam to in the future.

"In summation we all want to say THANK YOU to everyone who helped us throughout the years, from Sumerian records and Artery Foundation management, to the many promoters and booking agencies we've worked with, to bands like All Shall Perish, Suicide Silence, Carnifex, Dying Fetus, and many more for taking us on some of the best tours of our existence, and most importantly every fan out there no matter if you only did as little as shared a song, or if you did as much as to give us a place to sleep, shower, and eat on tour. We wish we could even begin to list the names individually but the list would be way too long and we would be afraid to leave anyone out.

Band used to be good. However, their style of metal isn't really relevant anymore. Best of luck.

Playing unremarkable deathcore while wearing flip-flops is not stoked

Spent a decade getting nowhere with that sound, still continues his passion in irrelevant sounding metal. Clearly has no desire to progress as a musician or person in life.

Didn't know they were still together. These guys are the most humble guys ever, I was in a new band and they drummer was giving me all sorts of tips to play better and they hung out with us the whole day. They may not have been a massive band but that little act went a long way for me.

They had a great stage presence as well as personality and talent, i enjoyed seeing them live every chance I could in florida, driving 4 hours so see them when they couldn't visit. For all you jerks judging them just by their name are hilariously childish.
Anyways, sucks to hear, but life happens.
Rip in peace
