A Dozen Furies call it quits

Monday, April 24, 2006 4:05 PM PT

Texas metal/rock band A Dozen Furies have announced their break-up. Winner of MTV's "Battle for Ozzfest" two years ago, the group released an album with Sanctuary Records in 2005. The following statement has been issued:

"There really is no point in drawing this out longer than it needs to be, so I'll try and be quick and to the point. After two amazing short years, A Dozen Furies has called it a day. We could go on and on about all of the reasons why, but when it comes down to it, it's because we've grown apart. I guess a lot of the 'wrong' things fell into place at the 'right' time. I'm sure some might think we were a flash in the pan and now that our 15 seconds is over, we are quitting. Well, most of us have been doing this for close to 10 years and it's just time for some of us to move on. With that said, we would like to express our more sincere thanks to everyone who was with us at any point along the way. All of the fans we've made, friends we've met, bands we toured with, and industry people we've befriended amongst our travels, we'd like to say THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts. All of you have helped us achieve in just 2 years something that most bands never get to experience in their entire careers. This will be something that none of us will ever forget, and we hope most of you who did run across our path won't forget as well.

Who knows what will happen with us after the split. Some of us will continue pursuing music, some will move on with the rest of our lives... To end it off, we are holding a farewell show at The Ridglea Metal & Hardcore Fest on Saturday, May 6th at The Ridglea Theatre in Ft. Worth, Texas. There are 3,000 bands playing, only the best of the best of course, so this will be a show you shant miss."

4/24/2006 7:07:52 PM
i guess their appearance on that stupid ass reality show really brought forth turmoil within the band and they couldn't deal with the music's raw emotion anymore. shitty ass motherrfcking band.

4/24/2006 7:25:03 PM

4/24/2006 8:58:41 PM
Media stunt by Ozzy!

4/24/2006 9:05:31 PM

these dudes opened for us and cursed at cb's one time. they actually paid the promoter 200 dollars to play the show. about 15 kids watched them. sweet times

4/25/2006 2:51:49 AM
i played with this band once... shitty music shitty dudes

4/25/2006 4:20:25 AM
Does this mean Ozzy will redue another season of that show? Because I dont think I can handle listening to much shitty metal/metalcore

4/25/2006 5:15:15 AM
This band sucked balls.

4/25/2006 7:48:46 AM

Waaah! Touring is Hard! Waaah! PUSSIES!

4/25/2006 11:33:47 AM
Close to 10 years as a rap metal band called Unloco. Who the fck cares about a band that got popular cause of a Battle of the Bands?

4/25/2006 12:52:17 PM
Trendmetal...hope they find something more worthwhile to do with themselves and what talents they do have. Unloco...I wiped my ass on their CD jacket.

4/25/2006 2:41:01 PM
they were shit anyway.

4/25/2006 5:35:23 PM
saw these guys live at a local nu-metal show. terrible show, except scattertheashes were also there are they're pretty good actually.

4/25/2006 6:27:41 PM
ADF is all good in my book. Good luck guys.

4/25/2006 6:59:53 PM

4/26/2006 12:56:49 PM
That's too bad a band gets a mjor deal handed to them and then quits... there are so many other acts that would have loved to be in their position

4/26/2006 2:19:27 PM
1ST POST....................SHIT

4/26/2006 4:30:23 PM
lol at the failure of a band featuring ex-nu metal dudes trying hard to cash in on the dying metalcore craze.

4/26/2006 6:09:24 PM
