The band says in a statement: “We know this may come as a surprise to many of you; honestly, it kinda took us by surprise too…

What was supposed to be a short eight-week break suddenly and unfortunately turned into the demise of the band.
“We have been touring and recording in a relentless schedule since 2008 and I guess we burned the candle in both ends and hit a wall. When we finally had the opportunity to step back and get some perspective, the motivation for some members in the band just wasn’t there anymore…”It is our hope that the flame will burn once again and hopefully resurrect this Swedish bastard sometime in the future. Time will tell… For now, au revoir.”
