UPDATE 26/11/18: The band have announced dates in Perth and Adelaide + an additional All Ages show in Melbourne
These days bands come and go like band members in The Amity Affliction, but one Aussie act we’re gutted to see are calling it quits is Storm the Sky who revealed the breakup news with fans on social media after close to 10 years.
In a lengthy statement, the guys revealed:
Hey everyone, hope you’ve all been well!
After almost 10 years, we have decided to call it a day.
This may not come as a huge shock to some of you as we’ve been quite dormant over the last year, but it’s something we’ve only recently decided to do.
We’ve decided that this is the best move for us as individuals, as we all have a desire to explore everything else the world has to offer us having done this for so long! We started this band when we were kids, playing loud music in our parents’ garages and have achieved so much since those early days. Looking back on what we achieved over the last 8 years is something that we’ll be forever proud of and something that we couldn’t have done without the continuous support from all of our fans. We can’t thank all of you enough, you seriously helped us live out our wildest dreams!
It doesn’t even need to be said, but just for the record, we’re all still best mates, I mean how could we not be after everything we went through and accomplished together! In saying that, we’ve decided to get the original “Permanence-era” 6 piece Storm The Sky lineup back together for one last run of shows to say farewell to our fans, and also for a sense of closure for ourselves. We’ll be playing songs which span our entire back catalogue, and we plan on making these final shows very special.
Thank you all again so much for the love and ongoing support you’ve all given us, you’ve made our hearts forever full ❤
The band achieved alot in their 8 years together, performing at UNIFY and releasing two albums (Permanence & Sin Will Find You), they also signed to UNFD and Rise Records as well as touring with big name acts like Pierce The Veil, Don Broco, In Hearts Wake and Chiodos.
In 2016 their unclean vocalist Daniel “Breenie” Breen departed the band, however, they continued on, focusing more on the melodic side of the music, which in turn kept some of their more devoted fans and unfortunately lost some of the heavier, scream appreciative ones.
It’ll be sad to see the guys go, but bloody awesome to see the OG Permanence-era one last time in the process which will happen up Australia’s East Coast in January, kicking off in Sydney on the 25th, Brisbane on the 26th and wrapping up in Melbourne on Feb 2nd. Tickets for the shows are on sale now, see below for more details.
RIP Storm the Sky…
