Finnish metallers TWILIGHT GUARDIANS have issued the following update:
"This is to let you all know that after August 29, 2008, TWILIGHT GUARDIANS exists no more as a band. It's also the date of our final show in our hometown of Salo.
There are absolutely no personal conflicts involved and we remain the best friends hopefully the rest of our days... So what happened? We just lost the enthusiasm and sincere joy for this music that we had the earlier years. We have been playing as TWILIGHT GUARDIANS for over 10 years now and lately it hasn't been that fun anymore. So we talked about these feelings during the spring and decided it is better to quit than it is to pretend. You all deserve us to be honest. For sure, it has been a rocky road for TWILIGHT GUARDIANS in music business and since the day one we have been struggling with record labels, managers, booking agents, etc. etc. but that's only business. No hard feelings. Music is what counts. Everyone of us will keep on playing and making music, that's for sure. Wait and see!
"We want to thank our fans and supporters from the bottom of our hearts for all these years! For you we allways gave our best and you all made it worth the effort. Heads up high! We also want to bow for our crew for their guts and patience and the hilarious moments on the road. Gracias, amigos!
"We made four great albums, played sold-out shows and got friends from all over the globe... and we had a blast along the way!!!"
TWILIGHT GUARDIANS last November released the video for the song "The Game", taken from the band's fourth album, "Ghost Reborn". Watch the clip below.
"Ghost Reborn" was released on November 7, 2007 via Spinefarm Records. According to a press release, the CD "incorporates neo-classical musicianship to powerful anthems. Their trade may be overcrowded, but they hold out their own. Amongst these more traditional songs, the album holds a real treat. The passionate fans of the band will probably already what is going on, but to many a other this will be a really surprising twist."
