“IRON THRONES IS NO MORE”
There’s no easy way for me to break this to you, so I’ll just come right out with it: perennial MetalSucks favorites and winners of the 2010 Scion No Label Needed Contest, Iron Thrones, are breaking up. A statement on the band’s Facebook page reads as follows:
“Iron Thrones is no more.
“Our sincerest apologies to those who were looking forward to a new Iron Thrones album. As has been somewhat obvious, we have been on an unplanned hiatus for the past couple of years, and although there were occasional moments of synchronicity, ultimately the flame died out and we gradually moved apart. We had a good run, and met a lot of fantastic people who truly appreciated our music. The same honesty that drove our creative process, now forces us to admit to ourselves that any new material we created as Iron Thrones would be missing what truly made our music special to us, and so it is time to lay this project to rest.
“Sometimes, things just don’t turn out the way you would’ve liked. Time passes on, and things that you thought would never change, do. People change. Passions change. Regardless, the world continues to spin, oblivious to the changes within us, and we move on.”
This is a serious bummer, and the only consolation I take is that now they’ll never get old and terrible and sully our memories of them. I don’t really know what else to say other than that I’ll be over in the corner listening to The Wretched Sun on repeat whilst weeping if anyone wants to come hang out and give me a hug.
