Guelph, Ontario-based act DEAR BLACK DIARY has announced that it will disband following two final shows in Oshawa and Niagara Falls with Montreal's 3 MILE SCREAM.

"We at the DEAR BLACK DIARY camp have decided that it's time for a must needed change," says bassist Steve Ferraro. "After years of slugging it out, we feel that the new tunes that we have written, although still fast and brutality epic, just do not reflect the band that Jordan, Colin and I started five years ago. The new stuff is so much bigger than DEAR BLACK DIARY is, so we are putting it to bed. That being said, we are planning to release our new material soon as a new project with a new name etc. DBD has been great but it's time to start something new and fresh that is representative of all five guys involved. Plus, the new name is just way better! So, don't say goodbye, just say so long."

DEAR BLACK DIARY released its self-titled Year of the Sun Records debut in 2006 and has toured with EMMURE, FOREVER IN TERROR, FAREWELL TO FREEWAY, ARISE AND RUIN and 3 MILE SCREAM. The group's debut album was produced by Scott Sherar and perfectly displayed the group's technical brutality and subtle emotion. The album was called "extremely impressive and worth checking out" by Exclaim! magazine and the group's video for "Life is the Number One Cause of Death" debuted on MuchMusic's "Loud". The clip can be viewed below.
