Détente - Are Calling It A Day


Détente has decided to throw in the towel almost three years after the cult Canadian 80's speed band reformed.

The group released the following statement: "Today (December 20) the Cognitive Records reissue of 1986's Recognize No Authority sold out, with nearly 3000 copies sold we would call it successful given a few years ago Détente were more of a trivia question (despite selling 10's of thousands of copies in the 80's). Détente's Decline has also done well with over 1000 sold in the first few months.

The band has put much work into the reunion and believes that while it has been hard work, that it has been a positive experience: having the opportunity to see so many of our friends on our last EU tour was especially cool! The fact is like everyone else, the band has daily responsibilities and the logistics of keeping Détente moving is no longer possible. While it is conceivable that we could get together for a festival in the future we believe it is time to call it a day.

Thanks to everyone who has helped along the way, we value your effort and friendships."

I think this is the best for the band, since Dawn Crosby is not with them anymore, I don't see why they should keep on playing under the Détente name.

Well the latest album does them service imo. Tiina Teal's vocals do come damn close to those of Dawn. It was a disgrace that they first went with that vocalist that used to sing in Hellion. Tiina does Dawn justice.
