Australian metalcore outfit I Killed The Prom Queen has officially called it quits, according to The Gauntlet. Formed in 2000, the group has released material with Hand Of Hope Records and Metal Blade Records, among others. The following statement has been issued:
"We regret to announce that I Killed The Prom Queen will no longer continue as a band. The final nail in the coffin came when Jona was asked to join USA Metal group Bleeding Through as second guitarist. This, coupled with our inability to find a replacement vocalist, aided the decision to end the band.
"We would all like to sincerely thank all our friends and family and our label's Stomp, Metal Blade, Golf and Howling Bull records for their ongoing support of IKTPQ and most of all we would like to thank all the fans that made the last 7 years the most amazing years of our lives. We feel that we made a good impact on the Australian and world wide music scenes.
"We also apologise for the cancellation of our upcoming USA tour-dates. The band will announce a final farewell Australian tour in the coming months."
