Ruadh - Cease With Live Activities

Scottish atmospheric black metal unit Ruadh, led by Tom Perrett, has decided to cease with live performing for an indefinite time. More can be read via Tom's full statement down under.

Tom Perrett explains: ''Good evening folks. After a lot of soul-searching in the last few months, I've come to a few conclusions that I need to share. I started Ruadh in 2017 as a solo studio project until the following year when we played our first show which was at Beermageddon in Bromsgrove. It's been an exceptional ride and we have had so much fun playing a lot of shows (would have been more without Covid and war) and had the honour of playing Shows like Dark Troll Festival and Northern Silence Productions own festival in stunning locations of Germany.

"Every show I've enjoyed immensely but it's time to step back from this now. My own lifestyle doesn't allow me to be away for days at a time with a full-time job and young family so I'll be reverting back to the original view for Ruadh which for now at least will be a studio-only project, I still have many more releases planned for this project and I'm already into pre-production of album 5.

"This is not a decision that has been taken lightly in fact it's one of the hardest choices I've ever made. I've been playing live shows since I was 17 or something, I'm now 38 so that's a large part of my life but what I've always enjoyed is the creative process, I love writing albums and sharing them with the world. I won't say we are 100% done with shows but any offers will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and there will be no active attempt to source shows on my part at all. I want to wish everyone who brought my music to life all the best as well for your contributions.

"Kim will still record the bass parts for the albums moving forward and if ever we do have a show to announce then you'll hear it here.

"Thanks to everyone who has come to see us. bought merch and had a chat it really does mean a lot to me that so many people enjoy the music I've created."
