New England hardcore/metal veteran act HELL WITHIN has called it quits. The band will play its final show on November 11 at the Village Smoke House in Lowell, Massachusetts.
Commented guitarist Tony Zimmerman: "We'd like to thank everyone that supported us over the years and made this band happen. It's been a long hard road, but the most enjoyable experience of our lives. All across the U.S. this band traveled, met tons of great people and experienced things that we will cherish forever.
"HELL WITHIN released three records, had two recording contracts, did countless tours and shared with so many people something that is so precious to us.
"To all the band members that we ever played with, to our record labels Lifeforce and Thorp Records, we will never forget you guys. From our first manager, Cynthia Donovan, to our latest manager, Damon Moreno, we thank you for dedicating so much time to us. Then to all the great companies like Jgermeister, Dean Guitars, B.C. Rich, Mesa Boogie, GHS, D'Addario etc., that endorsed us, we thank you so much for the support.
"We'd like to thank our family and friends for always being there for us through the good and tough times.
"I could go on and on, because the list never ends; just too many people and memories to count.
"Please come out to the Village Smoke House show and for one last time, [and] help us make one more memory that everyone will never forget."
