Sister Sin released Black Lotus, their fifth studio album, in November of last year, and played this year’s Victory Records Stage at Mayhem Fest. But this weekend the Swedish metal band had decided that they’ve had enough and announced, “SISTER SIN is no more.”
Said the band via Facebook:
“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 weeks break, suddenly & unfortunately, turned in to 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 any more…
Would like to take this opportunity and thank our beloved road crew, Victory Rec, Danger Music, Artery Foundation, TKO & all other great people and companies we worked with these past seven years as a professional touring act.”
Formed in 2002, Sister Sin signed with Victory Records in 2008 and released four albums with the label. The band left a glimmer of hope that this isn’t the end, saying, “It is our hope that the flame will burn once again and hopefully resurrect this Swedish bastard sometime in the future. Time will tell…”
