Walking With Strangers Going On Hiatus

The five piece metal outfit known as Walking With Strangers have announced today that they will be going on a hiatus. They’re not “officially” breaking up, however they feel at this point it’s time to discontinue as a band and go their separate ways. You can read a full statement from the group by taking a look below the jump.

The band has a handful of shows coming up which will be their last. Be sure to check out their Facebook page for a full list of dates to see if they will be playing in your city one last time.

For the past year Walking with strangers have been running on fumes, we have been doing just what we had to get by as a active band.

We love being out on the road playing shows, but once we are home it’s hard to find motivation to keep this engine running. Atleast not at the level WWS deserves. Walking with strangers have been with the same line up (besides Christian that joined on bass guitar in 2010) in almost 10 years (yepp despite our ‘young age’ this journey began back in 2004). And we have now come to the conclusion that in order for us as individual people to find our way back to love playing music as in everything that involves with being a band (besides playing live) we have to take a step back and just let our self find our way in life without WWS.

We don’t want to say that this is the final end of Walking with strangers, if we wake up in a year or two and feel that “yes it’s time to write some new shit” we will do that, but we can’t make that promise today.

We would love to see everyone come and hang with us now in May! The sad news don’t end here though, a couple of days ago Robin ended up in a mess with his school, long story short they are forcing him on some final things otherwise he will not get his grades for his past 6 months in school. This collides with 3 of the shows, we have two options on these shows. Cancel them or take in a stand in, we have chosen the second option. We will release who will take his place within a few days. We can’t explain how sad we are about this, but in our point of view it’s better than cancel them at this point.

So please come out to these shows and party with us so we say thank you in person to each and every one of you who have supported us through the years!
