In the last couple of hours, Yashin have become the latest British band from the rock and metal scene to call it a day. The following statement was posted on their Facebook page and on the band’s website:
This is a moment in time we never wanted to come but unfortunately it has arrived, which means Yashin is no more.
The music industry is a cut throat business at the best of times and despite our best efforts, passion and commitment it has dissolved everything we used to love about being in this band.
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank every person who has ever been a fan of our band and everyone we have worked with, because of you we have really lived our dream and accomplished some incredible things. Selling out tours, being in the charts, touring with our heroes, signing a major record deal, playing in amazing cities, award nominations, having dedicated fans – the list goes on. We love you and can’t thank you enough.
We will be announcing a few Farewell Shows for everyone wanting to say goodbye in the correct way.
We are really sorry for any inconvenience caused to anyone who was planning on going to The Renegades tour, this decision does not come lightly for us.
Our music will remain so keep playing it loud!
Yashin’s previously announced co-headline tour, “The Renegades Tour” with Vampires Everywhere and Firstborn has now been cancelled. Details of some final shows for the band (mentioned in the Facebook comment) will surface in due course. For now all we can do is add Yashin to the likes of Funeral For A Friend, The Blackout and countless others who have called it a day over the last couple of years.
