Buried In Verona Announce Break Up; Final Tour
After a nine year rollercoaster dominating the Australian heavy music scene with corrosive roars and battering breakdowns – no matter the ups and downs that they hit along the way – Sydney metalcore maniacs Buried In Verona have called it a day.
Frontman and sole standing member Brett Anderson broke the news early this afternoon, stating that he’ll instead pursue music with Don’t Die Like I Did. Since forming in 2007, Buried In Verona have released five fuckoff massive studio albums: Circle The Dead (2008), Saturday Night Sever (2010), Notorious (2012), Faceless (2014) and last lear’s Vultures Above, Lions Below.
To send BIV out with the bang they deserve, the band will embark on one final headline tour – come October, they’ll hit Bunbury, Perth, Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide and Melbourne. Fellow scene legends Capture The Crown will join the band as lead support, with newcomers Foxblood and Arkive tagging along as well (sans Bunbury and Perth dates).
Check out Brett Anderson’s full statement below:
“Most people in the heavy music scene, as much as they dread the thought, know that one day this moment will come. The moment most bands have to go through. The moment is the end. The last tour, last album and it feels just as bad as I always knew it would.
After nearly a decade of living, for the most part, something I always dreamed of doing, it’s now time for the end and one last tour.
I want to thank everyone who supported Buried In Verona over the years, whether it was for one album or all five, thank you from the bottom of my heart for listening to our music. It’s the best thing I’ve ever achieved.
To the people who wrote to us saying our music touched you, saved you or helped you in anyway, know that your messages and kind words did more to us that our music did to you, truly honoured that some of you thought about BIV in that amazing way. You guys allowed us to see and do some incredible things around the world and we can never repay you so thank you, thank you, thank you.
This is not the end of music for me as I’ll be continuing with my side project, Don’t Die Like I Did, but I do have to close the chapter of my life that is Buried In Verona.
See you all one last time,
Love all the BIV family.”
