Bane to disband after final North American tour

Friday, December 18, 2015 6:29 AM PT

Following a year of performing in various locations for the final time, Worcester, Massachusetts hardcore/punk band Bane is preparing to finally hang up their guitar chords next spring, twenty years after their inception. Prior to breaking up, Bane will embark upon a final tour of North America. The trek will take place in March, April, and May, though details have yet to be divulged. For now, here is a statement from the band:

Just over a year ago, Bane started saying our goodbye's. What a journey it has been.

South America kicked it off, next came the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and Hong Kong . Followed by Australia and Japan. Places and times that we will forever hold close. Rafael, Kennet, Riz, Mawds and Crowe, Daiki, and every friend and fan who came out and stood by us along the way, we miss you already and will be forever grateful.

Now we stand at the end of our final European tour, seven weeks and 25 countries. Saying goodbye night after night doesn't get any easier. It is such a strange thing having something we discussed as an idea on how we wanted to walk away from this all, becoming more of a reality every day. The emotions that come along with all of this. But it is what we set out to do and we have to stay strong and continue.

To Marco, Ivonne, Mekk and the Avocado crew. Thank you for your tireless effort and commitment. Yura, Nadav and Kids Insane crew, Dimitris, Zoltan, Code Orange, Backtrack, Wolf Down, Tausend Löwen unter Feinden, Vladimir, and lastly, each and every one of you who traveled, hung out, sang along, smiled, cried and hugged us close, thank you for being a part of what has been the most fulfilling adventure of our lives.

But this is not over just yet.

January 2-3 we will celebrate our 20th Anniversary in Worcester Massachusetts, inside the same room that held our very first show. In February we will say, farewell to Mexico. Then in March-May 2016, as winter turns to spring, we will embark on our final tour as a band. It will take us through the United States and select cities in Canada. The details are being cooked up as I type this, and we will be announcing the dates any day now. It's going to be a good one and it's going to be a sad one.

We are well and truly out of our comfort-zone right now, goodbyes and fanfare and letting go of this enormous chunk of our lives. There are 1,000 cliche's that we can type here, each of them feels more empty than the last.

We followed our hearts, trusted in our emotions and the end has rushed to our doorstep much too quickly, but we really are going to try to make the most of and enjoy every last detail of these final few pages.

To each and every one of you who is coming out to be a part of it all, pulling us through and making the end feel survivable, we must (we must, we must..)

Thank you.

The boys in Bane

When asked about the final tour SHOENICE, singer of Bane, said "I'll eat that for a dollar" and walked back into his motel room, never to see his daughter again.

Considering their shitty, joking and unrespectful show in Toulouse, France, last week, it won't be a big loss !

Hello. Aaron Bedard here. Singer for legendary hardcore ensemble Bane. Yes it's true this will be your last chance to dance for Bane on the upcoming North American tour.
Good bye and thank you all.
Don't forget to catch us on the Back To Life full world tour in 2016.

I stopped liking this band after the singer told me "were not playing that song" numerous times for requesting one of their better songs. Don't need that arrogance any more. #nocare

12/19/2015 7:12:36 AM
I think we've all seen at least 10 'Final Bane' shows

12/19/2015 10:05:58 AM

I really don't understand how you can be into hardcore music and not like Bane. I'm guessing the same people who post the "System of a Down singer here," are the same people who are hating on this band.

Frankie Palmeri's man bush and nappy chest hair are stoked
