Metal Church have issued the following update:

"To all of our fans and friends... We regretfully announce that Metal Church is calling it quits. The performance at Rocklahoma will be our last show. We have had to cancel the shows scheduled for August and that, among other things, has led us to have to make this decision. There has been far too much frustration and disappointment in trying to keep moving forward. The collapse of our record company, SPV, has made it next to impossible for us continue in any kind of professional manner due to lack of tour support. This decision was not made lightly. We do have unfinished business in the studio, and with any luck we will have something that will be of interest to Metal Church fans in the near future. We would like to thank all the fans that have stuck with Metal Church through all these years, the line-up changes and the ups and downs. We can't tell you how much your support has meant to us, we appreciate each and every one of you. It's been a great ride."

Always a shame to see one of the old guard hanging up their boots, but all good things must come to an end, as we are constantly reminded...cheers Metal Church for much great music over the years, may you live long in the annals of metal history. this one's for you guys.

At least they didnt drag it out and make an ass out of themselves.

MAD props for Rocklahoma being their last show/the WORST show name in the history of everything.

It is always very sad when a band quits against their will but surely they will be remembered by their fans.

Oh my fucking god... I though this was one of those bands that were gonna break up when they were all old and one of their members died... well it's just too bad..........

Man, this SPV insolvency sucks. I sure hope that this doesn't keep up with this company other major record companies. I don't want downloading to bring an end to record companies. Dang. Thanks for those links, by the way.

Sad news, they put out some really great stuff.
tea[m]ster - 07.09.2010 at 04:21  
I liked their early stuff...how's the newer releases?

Downloading definitely hurts smaller bands far more than bigger bands, which is ironic, as I think smaller, more unkown bands are more likely to have their music downloaded illegally than bigger bands.

Such a shame, another great band is gone...
