Los Angeles-based band CRISIS have issued the following statement:
"All of us in CRISIS would like to let our very faithful and diehard fans know that the band is going on an indefinite hiatus. We are sorry that our fans will not be hearing any new music from us in the near future. CRISIS has had a long and fruitful life thus far. Therefore, we dont feel the need to justify our decision specifically. The band members will be focusing on their personal lives, as well as pursuing other artistic interests. In the meantime we strongly urge our fans to support original and honest artists and their music; a lot of them can be found on The End Records roster.
"We would especially like to thank our dedicated fans the world over for sticking so closely with us over a span of 12 years and more. We would also like to thank Andreas Katsambas and The End Records crew from the bottom of our hearts for all their support. If CRISIS ever thinks about releasing another album it would be a pleasure for us to work with The End again."
CRISIS's latest album, "Like Sheep Led to Slaughter", was released in May 2004 through The End/Children Of Rage Records. CRISIS' video for the track "Blood Burden" was shot in April 2004 with director Darren Doane (DEFTONES, AFI, THURSDAY, NILE). A follow-up clip, "Waking the Dead", was filmed at the site of an abandoned women's hospital in the boiler and patient rooms in January 2005.
