Battle Of Mice - Call It A Day

Battle Of Mice has called it quits. Here's the official statement:

"After two critically acclaimed releases, Battle Of Mice has been officially and amicably dissolved. Never before has the story of a violent, interpersonal flameout been so aurally documented. It was intense while it lasted, but we should all be thankful that the band has ended; not with a bang, but with a whimper.

What the future holds:

The full length vinyl may still make an appearance sometime next year. We are waiting for the final word on that one.

Julie Christmas (Made Out Of Babies) is currently working on a solo record, be on the lookout. The record features almost an entirely different lineup on each song, featuring many special guests.

Josh Graham's (Neurosis, Red Sparowes) new band, A Storm Of Light, has a new release coming out September 2009. The record is called "Forgive Us Our Trespasses", and features Jarboe, Nerissa Campbell, Lydia Lunch, and more.

Joel Hamilton and Tony Maimone are both working on the next Book Of Knots record. Both are recording madmen as well. Joel recorded and plays on A Storm Of Light's record, and just finished recording the new Black Keys album.

Joe Tomino (The Fugees, Peeping Tom) has been on tour with his band Dub Trio, as well as playing with many others including Mike Patton.

That is about it. Be Well. Sleep and Dream."

Wow. This is one of the most amazing projects there have ever been imo. Like they say themselves; "Never before has the story of a violent, interpersonal flameout been so aurally documented."

Violent interpersonal flameout? I never knew...

But damn, I gotta get crackin' on getting a release of theirs before they go out of print.

I love this band. Shame to see them go. Hopefully they'll end up releasing the second album, eventually.

I don't think I have heard of this band, but it sucks that they split up. I will want to check out this band.

Music was my life, music brought me to life and music is how I will be remembered long after I leave this life. When I die there will be a final waltz in my head that only I can hear.

It was a nice project, but well project not always last long. What a dramatic statement, wonder how they managed to make music like that...
