Seven Sisters of Sleep Guitarist Arrested for Child Porn; Band Breaks Up

0

Los Angeles sludge-grind outfit Seven Sisters of Sleep are calling it quits. The reason? Their asshole rhythm guitarist, Eddie Bermudez, is gonna be in jail until at least 2262. I’m kidding, obviously. He’s going to die in jail.

The other members of the band explain:

“It is with profound sadness that we announce the end of Seven Sisters of Sleep.

“On Thursday March 8th, the day we were last scheduled to have practice, we learned via a text message and Google search that our rhythm guitar player, Eddie Bermudez, turned himself in several days before for over two dozen felony counts pertaining to child pornography. According to these charges, he was posing as a 16 year old boy on social media to solicit pictures and videos from underage girls. We were absolutely blind sided by this and left in a state of shock, disgust, sadness, and anger that we are very much feeling now and will likely feel for years to come. We are devastated and left feeling about as betrayed as you can.

“We, the remaining members, have to distance ourselves from SSOS. This decision doesn’t come lightly but it was also forced upon us by this situation. We also want to express gratitude to all the fans, bands, and labels who supported us throughout our 9 year run. We know in light of this revelation it won’t be easy to disassociate SSOS with this horrible news going forward but that is nothing compared to the other negatives involved here.”

So this is basically what happened to As I Lay Dying — one shithead completely diseased the brand. Maybe the members of Seven Sisters of Sleep can soldier on with a new rhythm guitarist (or just one guitarist) under a new name, the way the members of AILD who weren’t Tim Lambesis went on to start Wovenwar with a new singer. I guess that would be the best case scenario in this truly shit-soaked situation.

P.S. Congrats to Bermudez on being one mustache short of looking like every child predator in every movie and television show ever.
