It’s with pain in our hearts to announce that xRepentancex is calling it quits. They posted a statement on their Facebook-page earlier today:
“It has been the plan for a while now, but xRepentancex will be calling it a day. It has always been difficult for us to get together to play, given everyone’s busy schedules and the fact we live in different cities. But as our personal lives have gotten increasingly busy, we would rather end the band while we can still put in 100%, as opposed to slowly decaying and putting out music that wasn’t to the best standard we could produce. We are extremely grateful for the things we have been able to do as a band.
Thanks to everyone that has supported us in any way. The scene in the UK is better than ever, and we are glad we were a small part of it.”
