TO/DIE/FOR: Is It All Over?

Someone claiming to be Jape Perätalo, the frontman of the acclaimed Finnish act TO/DIE/FOR, has posted a message via the group's official message board announcing the band's imminent split due to “business” reasons and vowing to carry on in a as-yet-unnamed new project together with NEW DAWN FOUNDATION members Juppe and Santtu. After the above-mentioned message had been posted, an announcement from TO/DIE/FOR's webmaster came indicating that the message board would be turning into a “read-only” forum in order to avoid having it filled with “rumors”, and closed out the message by stating that the band “is not breaking up”. Here is the posting in its entirety from the person claiming to be TO/DIE/FOR vocalist Jape Perätalo:
