YOUR DEMISE 2013 PROMO by Felix Dickinson

Your Demise To Split In 2014

Sad news has come from Your Demise’s camp: the band have announced that in 2014 the band will split up. There will be a farewell tour between October 2013 and March 2014, with more details to follow. You can watch the band’s announcement below. Moreover, the band had to pull out of the dates in North America, Canada and Mexico in mid May.

“We are truly very sorry to be letting our fans over the Atlantic down,” say the band of the tour cancellation. “It is with heavy hearts that we have found ourselves having to make the decision to pull out of the shows in Mexico, USA and Canada. Trust us, we are not a band that has ever made a habit of canceling shows, let alone tours, so we have not made this decision lightly. We feel terrible for the disappointment this news will cause our fans in those countries, and we would like to take this opportunity to apologise to all of our transatlantic supporters, the show promoters, our stateside team and, of course, Rotting Out and Expire who both were set to join us on the dates. On a more positive note, Rotting Out will still be doing the West Coast portion of the dates around Rainfest, taking over from us as headliner. Stay tuned for another announcement with the specifics of this very soon.”
