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."

    Adelaide. Parkway are from Byron. Also IKTPQ aren't screamo or emo. You obviously don't know what you are talking about. How embarrassing. At least they move on stage. I don't think Jona will fit in with bleeding through. They just stand there and play live.

    They wouldve never been as good as they were with Ed anyway. At least there having one last farewell tour in Australia, im goin for sure.

    I'm gonna miss them. My Prom Queen shirt (wearing it now ) will mean a lot more to me from now on.

    I saw them live once with Static-X and Fear Factory, it was a good night. I was never a huge fan of them but they flew the flag for Adelaide Metal so i'm sad to see them go, especially when the other members may still wanna go on. I just hope they inspired enough local bands (and local record/distribution companies) to keep it alive.

    hahahahahaahahaha you idiots parkway - from adelade LOL parkway - from byron bay in qld??? even funnier at least erkus got it right. BBHC are there any aussies on this forum besides myself? Sad to hear about prommies but shit they've been doing it for a ****in' long time. I remember seeing them at the globe in Perth (western australia, australia, earth, milky way -> for all you geographically inert tools out there) about 5 years ago and thinking "this shit is beyond brutal"...still think that when i chuck em on these days. Congrats on 7 years of hard work fellas.

    Parkway Drive aren't from Adelaide.. they're from Byron Bay in Queensland. And by the way, Parkway Drive is the best thing that came outta Australia. They rule. IKTPQ were okay. I wasn't that psyched about em. I like some of their songs. Shame they broke up though.

    They have a song called 'Sharks in Your Mouth'? I've never heard any of their material, but they get my respect for that alone =) Always a shame when a band breaks up, must suck for the fans. I heard the name pop up quite a lot so they must have been doing something right. Lets hope they find new bands or something.

    agreed. i love parkway drive, as for iktpq, i didnt realy like em much. i only listened to a little bit of em and straight away just turned it off. it aint a big loss, theyll all find other bands.

    hmm last I checked byron was in NSW.... Parkway = good IKTPQ = not my cup of tea. spose they had lotsa fans though. pity to see them split up.

    Saw them live twice, definitely put on a great show.. wow really unexpected of this to happen. Aw well..

    IKTPQ is one of the few bands in their genre that I don't mind listening to. Sad to see a band break up - especially to go to a crappy band like bleeding through.

    Scott left Bleeding Through??? Damn! He seemed like a skilled guitarist. So, is Brian Leppke gunna step it up as lead? or is he gunna do rhythm. I only heard one song from "I Killed the Prom Queen" and it didn't impress me much at all. Nevertheless, it sucks they broke up , and I hope the guys the best in pursuing music. Rock on!

    awww, samerika you butt much, you said the exact same thing i said but you said it first....i applaud you
    Hexagram
    I just gave them a listen and i'm not too dissapointed but i've listened to Bleeding Through since last summer and they aren't too bad. It's always unfortute for the fans when a band breaks up though
    ready2breakdown
    ah whatever, they showed no promise anyway. If their guitarist was just gonna up and leave the band like that to join bleeding through, it was a matter of time before it happened anyway then.
    electric7
    wow. i had only heard of em this year. but...alas. hopefully all of em find bands to play in. or go solo.
    samerika
    I never liked them, guess theyre not my style but i dont lke it when bands break up cuz that makes many fans sad.

    This blows... Though it doesn't matter, I lost interest in I Killed The Prom Queen when Ed Butcher left the group.

    yes...I killed the prom queen is nowhere near emo do your research... I really liked this band and its sad to see them break up.

    Oh and if you were barely getting into their music, just cause they broke up doesn't mean their music will dissapear, just no opportunity for live shows
