New Jersey’s WAKING THE CADAVER has checked in with the following announcement about deciding to call it quits:
“It is with sad news that WTC will have to announce that we are no longer a band. Truth be told, we haven’t been a band since our last show we played in Seattle October 2013 on the Dying Fetus/Exhumed tour.
“We were never sure what the status of the band was going to be all this time, that’s why there hasn’t been an announcement, but some of you have figured it out and it’s only right to let everyone know the truth.
“There’s no bad blood with members or anything, we are all just living busy lives and are unable to commit to the demands of being in this band. Who knows, maybe in a couple years we’ll jam again.
“We want to thanks all our fans world wide…it’s so amazing how you people have made this band able to do things other slam bands would dream of doing. We sincerely love you all from the bottom of our cold dead hearts!!! Stay brutal.”
The band also comments on other projects from its members: “Mike Mayo is currently jamming in the grindcore outfit Ground and John Hartman is continuing his legacy in the legendary Mortal Decay. Support these awesome bands.”
Waking The Cadaver released three full-length albums in its lifetime, capping with 2013’s “Real-Life Death.”
