Despised Icon issue an update


Despised Icon As reported yesterday, after ten years, Montreal-based metallers DESPISED ICON are calling it a day. The band have issued the following update:

"If it wasn't clear enough, we want to assure everyone that we will be playing all the tours and all the shows that we've been announcing for the rest of 2010.

This means that we will be doing all the European shows scheduled for the next months, including the France/Spain/Portugal tour starting next Friday along with the Parkway Drive Tour that is to take place in a few weeks.

Also you can count on us to be part of the major summer festivals next August as this will be our last run in Europe. We are working right now at booking final tours in all the major areas we've been touring for the past 5 years.

Rest assured, we are NOT cancelling a single show! So please, come hang out one last time with us!"

About putting the band to rest, the band wrote in a statement: "The time has come for us to move on. Some of us have recently reached a new chapter in their lives, starting families, buying houses and pursuing other careers to make it all happen. Writing music, touring and leaving home for months at a time is slowly becoming impossible because of that. We all decided that it'd be best to pull the plug now and end things right."
