Swedish modern metal band ONE WITHOUT has released the following statement:
"We have jointly decided to not continue with ONE WITHOUT, and are going separate ways to focus on other bands instead. ONE WITHOUT will not continue to function as a band, and we won't be working with the band at all.
"This is not due to any hard feelings in between us as members; we are still very good friends and everyone feels this is the right thing to do. It's just a natural move in musical taste combined with having a lack of energy for keeping ONE WITHOUT alive.
"We have put all our hearts and all our energy in this band for so many years, and, unfortunately, we just don't have it in us anymore to continue as it is, as it has been a long uphill battle in too many ways.
"When there is no joy left, and everything concerning the band becomes a struggle, there is no reason to continue as we all play and create music first and foremost because we love doing it. And at the end of the day it should be fun."
ONE WITHOUT released a new EP, "Numbers", at the end of June via all bigger online music stores (and Spotify). The effort was produced, mixed and mastered by Joonas Niskanen and Kenny Boufadene, with cover art by Markus Mönttinen.
ONE WITHOUT previously released two albums, 2011's "Sweet Relief" and 2009's "Thoughts Of A Secluded Mind", has toured with DEAD BY APRIL, EVERGREY, KATATONIA, MARIONETTE and the GENITORTURERS, been featured in numerous magazines and radio shows and shared stages with bands like SOULFLY, EPICA, DORO, KRYPTERIA, PARADISE LOST, CARPARK NORTH, and ALL ENDS.
