Official statement from the band :
" Sometimes you grow together, sometimes you grow apart, sometimes you don't grow anywhere but you still keep on going anyway for lack of better options because its all
you know how to do! Anyway the simple truth here and now is that Clawfinger are calling it a day, throwing in the towel, going fishing, quitting and moving on to pursue other goals in life! After
20 years, 7 albums, more than a thousand gigs and 10 million beers consumed together it's simply time to put the band to rest and do other things! Nothing is of
course ever carved in stone but please don't hold your breath, that is if anyboby out there is stupid enough to even consider doing so!:D
It's been one hell of a ride, no doubt about it, bumpy yes, long and winding yes, full of dead ends and wrong turns but all the same one hell of a fucking ride, an experience to remember and treasure for life! All our love, repsect and admiration goes out to the people who have supported us along the way, the fans most of all because you've always been the fuel on our fire but hell, even the records companies deserve a little thanking at a time like this:D There are too many people to thank but you know who you are and if you've been there for us so respect to you all for the love, patience and understanding you've shown us through the years. You're dedication has been priceless and maybe we'll see you out there again for the 30th anniversary if we decide to try & cash-in on past achievements with the old classic reunion trick, only time will tell!
Thank you for everything, respect and one love to you all! Clawfinger. "
According to numerous reports out of New Orleans, Joey LaCaze, drummer of EYEHATEGOD, OUTLAW ORDER and TEN SUICIDES, has passed away. He was 42 years old and leaves behind a wife and a child. No further details are currently available.
EYEHATEGOD just completed a month-long tour of Europe and was gearing up for a string of dates in celebration of its 25th anniversary.
It was recently announced that EYEHATEGOD would make an appearance at Philip Anselmo's first annual Housecore Horror Film Festival this fall in Austin, Texas.
Since forming in 1988, EYEHATEGOD has defied all odds and continues to exist and persist despite personal and professional setbacks. They've been called doomcore, sludge and stoner rock, survived line-up shuffles, label hassles and a short-lived split. And after more than two decades of creating some of the most corrosive, vile music known to man, EYEHATEGOD still hasn't lost the piss and vinegar that fueled it back the late Eighties.
