Battle Of Mice - Call It A Day


Battle Of Mice has called it quits. Here's the official statement:

"After two critically acclaimed releases, Battle Of Mice has been officially and amicably dissolved. Never before has the story of a violent, interpersonal flameout been so aurally documented. It was intense while it lasted, but we should all be thankful that the band has ended; not with a bang, but with a whimper.

What the future holds:

The full length vinyl may still make an appearance sometime next year. We are waiting for the final word on that one.

Julie Christmas (Made Out Of Babies) is currently working on a solo record, be on the lookout. The record features almost an entirely different lineup on each song, featuring many special guests.

Josh Graham's (Neurosis, Red Sparowes) new band, A Storm Of Light, has a new release coming out September 2009. The record is called "Forgive Us Our Trespasses", and features Jarboe, Nerissa Campbell, Lydia Lunch, and more.

Joel Hamilton and Tony Maimone are both working on the next Book Of Knots record. Both are recording madmen as well. Joel recorded and plays on A Storm Of Light's record, and just finished recording the new Black Keys album.

Joe Tomino (The Fugees, Peeping Tom) has been on tour with his band Dub Trio, as well as playing with many others including Mike Patton.

That is about it. Be Well. Sleep and Dream."

Wow. This is one of the most amazing projects there have ever been imo. Like they say themselves; "Never before has the story of a violent, interpersonal flameout been so aurally documented."

I love this band. Shame to see them go. Hopefully they'll end up releasing the second album, eventually.
