ISIS Members Discuss Decision To Call It Quits

Posted by Captain Beyond Zen on Thursday, June 24, 2010

ISIS, the innovative Los Angeles-by-way-of-Boston-based band, recently spoke to the Artisan News Service about the group's decision to call it quits. You can watch the video report below.

In a statement released last month, ISIS said about the band's breakup, "This end isn't something that occurred overnight and it hasn't been brought about by a single cataclysmic fracture in the band. Simply put, ISIS has done everything we wanted to do, said everything we wanted to say.

"In the interest of preserving the love we have of this band, for each other, for the music made and for all the people who have continually supported us, it is time to bring it to a close. We've seen too many bands push past the point of a dignified death and we all promised one another early on in the life of the band that we would do our best to ensure ISIS would never fall victim to that syndrome.

"We've had a much longer run than we ever expected we would and accomplished a great deal more than we ever imagined possible.

"We never set any specific goals when the band was founded other than to make the music we wanted to hear and to play (and to stay true to that ideal), so everything else that has come along the long and winding path has been an absolute gift.

"As with any momentous life-changing decision (which this certainly is for the five of us), we feel a very dynamic range of emotions about this and cannot express all of it within the space of a few sentences, and perhaps it's best to do what we've always done in and let our music speak for us. It is and has been the truest expression of who we are as a collective and in some ways who we are as individuals for the 13 years in which we've been together."
