DEW-SCENTED To Call It Quits Following One Last Round Of Shows
May 17, 2018
German thrashers DEW-SCENTED will split up following one final round of live shows.
The long-running band, which released its 10th studio album, "Intermination", in 2015, announced its decision to call it quits in a Facebook post earlier today.
The group wrote: "All good things must come to an end...
"And it's now been 26 (!) intense years of sacrifices for the thrash metal cause for us. Despite numerous setbacks, DEW-SCENTED never split up or even stopped for any significant amount of time. We were always blessed with great opportunities and a strong will to soldier onwards.
"All in all, we have had an amazing ride with this music we love and not only played countless great shows across the globe, but released 10 (!) albums and most importantly, we made tons of life-long friendships along the way because of the band.
"But it's time to realize that we won't be able to forge ahead much further because DEW-SCENTED just won't work without complete and constant dedication. And giving such a full-time commitment simply isn't possible anymore because of how life otherwise evolved throughout the years.
"Having acknowledged that fact, we feel it's best to wrap the band up in a proper way, with a purely positive feeling. To go on our own terms and with the best possible 'conceptual end' (like the song on 'Issue VI', haha!),instead of leaving our destiny to chance or someone else’s actions.
"DEW-SCENTED will therefore perform a last run of shows in the coming months and then have a very last special show in the group's hometown Walsrode in Northern Germany on Saturday, October 6th, 2018 to celebrate the band's legacy in style one last time.
"Who knows, maybe we still manage to add some more last minute date(s) for the rest of the summer, but after October 6th, there will be no more frontline activities for DEW-SCENTED, no planned concerts and no further recordings."
