Martyr AD officially breaks up

Following several days of speculation, Martyr AD have now confirmed their demise. Here's a terse statement by the band: "Well, it's true. Martyr AD have broken up. Not much to say right now, but hopefully there will be a last show in Minneapolis. Sorry to everyone who was gonna come see us on the Agnostic Front tour and thanks to everyone who has supported us over the years. Stay tuned for info on a last show." Formed in early-2000 from the ashes of Disembodied, Martyr AD has released two albums, one with Ferret Music, followed by one with Victory Records.

tgomkills 4/17/2005 10:00:53 PM

blowtheirbrainsout 4/17/2005 10:05:34 PM

that sucks. but life goes on

emoxfag 4/17/2005 10:38:29 PM

funny you kids care about all the shittiest bands and when a good hardworking band breaks up no one cares.

mobab 4/17/2005 10:40:50 PM

Sucks, but was inevitable. Good live show.

eaglesbecomevultures 4/17/2005 10:50:10 PM

Marytr will be missed. It's too bad their live sound was never captured that well on tape.

xGunmedownx 4/17/2005 10:53:50 PM

how far a drive from nj to minn.??? i am actually considering this shit...

shaihulud2k1 4/17/2005 11:02:35 PM

That sucks, they were finally starting to snap off. At least now people will stop saying "Martyr" when they really mean Martyr AD, especially since MARTYR is a million times better.

withdeadhandsrising 4/17/2005 11:12:08 PM

God damnit.

carlthetruth 4/17/2005 11:18:02 PM

Dude_Wheres_My_Boner 4/17/2005 11:50:57 PM

Eh, this band bored me...But my first time hearing "Broken Mouth" was, and still is, magical.

Selvin 4/18/2005 12:09:51 AM

They're finally about to come to Toronto for the first time in ages... and they break up. Argh...

JustinBrannan 4/18/2005 1:47:49 AM

mattox 4/18/2005 6:11:08 AM

their victory release was shit anyways, 12 factions was good. none of that compared to anything disembodied did though.

yourcityliesindust 4/18/2005 7:24:18 AM

Man, what a bummer. I really liked them a lot. I'm just glad I got to see them before they broke up.

drewcifer 4/18/2005 12:05:08 PM = the band mentioned before. features ex-martyr ad lead singer and malignant members, im pretty sure.

motherfckzombies 4/18/2005 12:33:26 PM

this seriously better be the last time they get back together. That's fcking retarded. That pisses me off cause I was gonna go just to see them too.

xpoopx 4/18/2005 2:12:07 PM

Maybe a Disembodied reunion could happen. Oh man, If I believed in a God, I would pray for that shit.

assultcrew 4/18/2005 2:20:08 PM

Maybe Holding On will get back together now. Only in my dreams could that happen.

moshandroll 4/18/2005 4:32:51 PM

mefuckyeah 4/18/2005 6:30:04 PM
