Yüksel Unutmaz from the Swedish heavy metal band Fatal Smile recently broke up the band on the first night of their 32-date European 2014 tour. It comes at a time the band had announced a new album called White Trash Heroes to be released on April 25th via FS Records/GMR Music Group.

The official statement from Mr. Y himself goes like this: "Fatal Smile - R.I.P.: At some point in your life you'll have to 'kill your darlings'...and it's with a heavy heart I have to inform you that I'm laying my dear band Fatal Smile to rest...

"I sure know it's a really bad timing with a new album to be released & we just kicked off our first show of the tour last nite... But at a certain point in life you'll have to make decisions if things are really worth doing it...?? I have come to that point when the answer is no, it's no longer worth sacrificing everything in my life, my heart & soul just to keep the 'FS-train' rolling...

"It's been an epic journey since I started the band back in 1995 & I had a blast 'living the dream'... A million thank's to all of you for your endless support & love during those 'Fatal years' & thank's to all the band members during this time. I will sure keep writing & playing music, that's for sure! Take care & be well. Peace & Love, Yüksel Unutmaz aka 'MR. Y'"

Well that's certainly gotta be some of the shitting timing ever. Could have at least finished the tour. Wonder how the rest of the band feels about this? And the label, or whoever footed the bill for setting up the tour, recording/producing the album, setting up distribution and manufacturing the cds has got to be pissed about this.
