Amebix breaks up

Rob Miller has announced the split of seminal punks Amebix. The band originally formed in 1978 and reunited in 2008. They released Sonic Mass last year and spoke with SPB about it shortly afterward.


Miller explains the break-up as follows, promising a new band with drummer Roy Mayorga.



To my deep regret Amebix has now come to a point where we can no longer continue as a band. We have spent the past five years engaged in a process of resurrecting this group from the ashes,and feel very proud of what we have managed to achieve in that time.


The hope was that we would be able to tour the album and get our music out to a broadening audience, but there are factors within the band dynamic which will not allow for that in the foreseeable future. Personally i feel a great disappointment over this and that has in turn led me to this difficult decision. Amebix was and is the creation and brainchild of both myself and my brother Stig, with either of us absent it is no longer Amebix.
