Swedish Modern Metal band One Without has announced that they will cease to exist, and that the members will embark on new musical ventures.
Official announcement below:
“We have jointly decided to not continue with One Without, and are going separate ways to focus on other bands instead. One Without will not continue to function as a band, and we won´t be working with the band at all.
This is not due to any hard feelings in between us as members, we are still very good friends and everyone feels this is the right thing to do, it´s just a natural move in musical taste combined with having a lack of energy for keeping One Without alive.
We have put all our hearts and all our energy in this band for so many years, and unfortunately we just don´t have it in us anymore to continue as it is, as it has been a long uphill battle in too many ways.
When there is no joy left, and everything concerning the band becomes a struggle, there is no reason to continue as we all play and create music first and foremost because we love doing it. And at the end of the day it should be fun.
We will continue to use One Without´s facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/
bands, as we are moving in different musical directions.
Keep your eyes open, and you can expect updates about our new ventures in the near future.”
One Without was founded in 2003 in Gothenburg, Sweden, and has to date released two albums, and one EP. The album “Sweet Relief” was released in 2011 (OW Productions), and the debut album “Thoughts of a Secluded Mind” in 2009 (Lifeforce Record, later re-released by OW Productions). The EP “Numbers” was released digitally on the 24th of June 2012 (OW Productions).
Amongst other things, One Without toured Europe with Dead By April, Evergrey, Katatonia, Marionette and The Genitorturers, was featured in numerous magazines and radio shows and shared stages with bands like Soulfly, Epica, Doro, Krypteria, Paradise Lost, Carpark North, and All Ends, as well as played at festivals such as “Toulouse Metal Fest” in France, “Sweden Rock” in Sweden, “ROFA Xmas Festival” in Germany and “Rock Shock” in Denmark.
