London progressive metal outfit The Safety Fire announced via their Facebook page earlier today that they have officially thrown in the towel. The band’s official statement is as follows:
“We had you guys going for a while there, ey? You truly were all April Fools…
However, the harsh reality is, we have actually broken up. Maybe we will do a farewell show sometime. If you want to grab some merch to show people you were once cool, or are now cool and know some defunct band that no one has heard of in a few months time, then click the link below. When they’re gone, they’re gone for good.
Thanks for all the support over the years – from Cruisin’ to Smüth Beats, we had a real swell time. Thanks to everyone who bought a shirt, came to a show, let us sleep on their floors, fed us…but most of all, thank you to those who ever said, shouted, screamed, mumbled or merely whispered….
Fuck The Safety Fire.”
The band’s final release was 2013’s Mouth of Swords, which can be streamed below.
