MURDER ONE Calls It Quits

MURDER ONE, the British band featuring vocalists Paul Catten (ex-MEDULLA NOCTE) and John Loughlin (RAGING SPEEDHORN), bassist Jules McBride (ex-PULKAS), guitarists Mark Seddon (ex-MEDULLA NOCTE) and Dan Marshall, and drummer Jamie Airns, has issued the following update:

"Today and for the long, forseeable future, MURDER ONE have called it a day. No argument, no bullshit 'musical differences'....we just cannot continue. We're bold enough to say... 'No-one gives a fuck about the band any more!'... and we can deal with that.

"As a unit, we've never been better friends, sounded better and the new material was shaping up to be fine, BUT after spending the last 2-3 years fairly inactive due to constant misguidance and lethargy, we felt enough was enough. We shall all be continuing in other projects.

"Being in a band can drain you all of your dignity and self respect in the end. Each member has been through this very experience before and we intend on making sure it doesn't happen again.

"To the people who stuck with us, we're eternally grateful.... And to those who wasted our time, and drained our enthusiasm and interest in something we truly believed in....thanks for fuck all."

MURDER ONE released its debut album, "Some Things Are Better Left Unsaid", in Europe on June 5, 2006 via Grind That Axe Records (the U.K. label formed by former Kerrang! magazine writers/A&R executives Dante Bonutto and Derek Oliver). The CD was issued in Japan in July 2006 via the JVC/Victor Entertainment label. The Japanese version of the CD includes two bonus tracks from the band's EP: "Filthy Excuse of a Man" and "Answer to Everyone".
