There aren't too many grindcore bands that I listen to these days, but Singapore's Wormrot has always somehow found their way into my rotation. This is why this sucks to have to post this. Wormrot is going on a hiatus. They did promise to start touring in a few years and put out a new album. However, the band posted on their Facebook that the end of their tour ended on a sour note, they were abandoned and ripped off, and it was enough for them to want to focus on their personal lives. Here's what they wrote:
We've been ripped off, abandoned blablabla but we survived and end the tour with a fucking smile. We've been touring hard every year for quite awhile and we think it's time to take a break and concentrate on our personal shit as for now. We'll be back touring hopefully with another new album? MASSIVE thanks to Nicolas of Bones Brigades Records and the boys from Evisorax for being so cool during the tour. we love you guys endlessly. Last but not least, Luc from Doomstar Bookings/Fubar and of course our lovely Azean for being so patient with us. A very memorable LAST tour with the right people for the fucking win. We couldn't have done it without your support towards us. Thank you fellow friends across the globe. GRIND OR GET THE FUCK OUT! SEE YOU AGAIN IN A FEW YEARS!
Thankfully, Metal Injection has amassed a ridiculous amount of live footage to keep me occupied until the band returns.
Update: The band posted a follow up, making it clear that they are not breaking up, just taking a break:
There are FALSE rumors stating that we have disbanded. That is certainly NOT true. We are just taking a break from touring. We are still writing new tracks. We're definitely not fucking done!
