OCTAVIA SPERATI 'Taking A Break'

Norwegian metal band OCTAVIA SPERATI has issued the following update:

"At our last band meeting, OCTAVIA SPERATI decided to put band activities aside/take a break. We have reached a point where we have decided to put more time into other projects both within music, studies and families among other things for a while. We will all continue playing music, but we will take a break from the normal 'OCTAVIA life.' If there are any news from any of us, we will of course let you know as soon as possible.

"We are all looking forward to playing the lovely outdoor festival Lost Weekend near our headquarters Bergen on Friday, August 1, and will take the break after that.

"We are sorry to say that we will have to cancel the Dames Of Darkness festival in Birmingham in September."
