JUSTIN BROADRICK: GODFLESH Was Not GODFLESH Anymore

GODFLESH leader Justin Broadrick has issued a statement explaining why he chose to disband the industrial pioneers he founded in 1988.

The full statement is as follows:

"GODFLESH (1988-2002) - MISSION IS TERMINATED -

"On April 10th 2002, I disbanded GODFLESH. This was something I had painfully been pondering since GC Greens' departure from the band in Oct 2001. Regrettably it took until the day of leaving for a lengthy U.S tour for the realization to finally take its toll on me.

"Unfortunately the finality of the decision and the responsibilities of making the decision proved too much for me to bare, and I collapsed under the weight. I found that without GC Green, GODFLESH is not GODFLESH, and him leaving proved to be an omen for me. I also feel that everything we originally intended or even imagined with GODFLESH we have done. My only regret has been the hurting of both remaining band members Ted Parsons and Paul Raven, and disappointing those that believe in GODFLESH worldwide... In the near future, my new rock project JESU will surface. So this is by no means the end of my songwriting/guitar/vocalizing. Simply the end of a chapter.

"Endless gratitude to all those that have believed in and supported GODFLESH throughout the 14 year history. You know who you are... Long live the new flesh...

"JUSTIN K BROADRICK / MAY 2002"
