San Deigo's Destroy The Runner call it a day

SAN DIEGO-based metal band Destroy The Runner have announced they will be breaking up. The group, who released the albums 'Saints' (2006) and 'I, Lucifer' (2008) on Solid State Records, said in a band statement, "We unfortunately must embrace an indefinite hiatus. We have sought to maintain musical integrity and honesty within all facets of our functioning and, unfortunately, are not able to do so at this point in time. We have grown busier as the pains of real life and financial responsibilities keep us from a full time immersion into our passion for music. This has allowed compromise to enter the creative process. As soon as we could perceive this, we understood that it was time to give up the ghost, as compromise is the last thing we ever wish to entertain. This is the harsh face of reality. . . There are several side projects already underway and hopefully each and every one will reach your hearts and ears as Destroy The Runner has. Keep on the lookout for a softer, more experimental project with Nick, Duane, Marc, Jeremiah and several others called Other Mountains. Also, check out Chapter 14 with Chad and Tanner. And for the super heavy fans, be on the lookout for a very heavy, experimental band with Nick, Duane (vocals), Kyle (from Thieves And Liars) and our guitar tech Jason that is yet to be named." CR
