I Killed The Prom Queen split
Orange County metalcore mob Bleeding Through have announced that guitarist Scott Danough has left the band.
The band released the following statement, “We felt that we had grown apart and it was time for both parties to move on,” the band writes in a statement. “We wish him the best. We are already writing new material and looking forward to our next tour, which will be in Canada.”
In a double-whammy, Danough’s replacement will be Jona Weinhofen of I Killed The Prom Queen who have subsequently announced that they have split. The Australian metallers, who are featured in the Incoming section of the latest Metal Hammer (out tomorrow) have just completed their first UK tour with Bleeding Through had the following to say:
“The final nail in the coffin came when Jona was asked to join USA metal group BLEEDING THROUGH as second guitarist. This, coupled with our inability to find a replacement vocalist, aided the decision to end the band.
“We would all like to sincerely thank all our friends and family and our label’s Stomp, Metal Blade, Golf and Howling Bull Records for their ongoing support of IKTPQ and most of all we would like to thank all the fans that made the last seven years the most amazing years of our lives. We feel that we made a good impact on the Australian and worldwide music scenes. We also apologise for the cancellation of our USA tour dates.
“The band will announce a final farewell Australian tour in the coming months.”
Their last album ‘Music For The Recently Deceased’ was released in November through Metal Blade.
