It was a sad day in the metal world, especially of the female fronted kind, with news of Sweden’s own Sister Sin announced that the band is breaking, which was announced over social media this past weekend.
Since the band’s formation in 2002, and then finally their signing with the U.S.’s Victory Records, they have toured world wide with acts such as Motorhead, Alice Cooper and Ill Nino just to name a few. And in 2015, they were part of the line up on [what came to be, the final] Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, gaining even more fans than ever before.
The band released a statement on their Facebook page:
“As of today, November 7th 2015, SISTER SIN is no more.
We know this may come as a surprise to many of you; honestly, it kinda took us by surprise too.
What was supposed to be a short eight weeks break, suddenly & unfortunately, turned in to the demise of the band.
-We have been touring and recording in a relentless schedule since 2008 and I guess we burned the candle in both ends and hit a wall. When we finally had the opportunity to step back and get some perspective, the motivation for some members in the band just wasn’t there any more…
Would like to take this opportunity and thank our beloved road crew, Victory Rec, Danger Music, Artery Foundation, TKO & all other great people and companies we worked with these past seven years as a professional touring act.
Most of all we would like to thank YOU; Our dedicated, devoted, loving and caring fans around the globe! We´ve truly been blessed to be able to travel the world and meet so very many of you Sinners. -Together we managed to sell tens of thousands of albums and achieve what most young bands only can dream of in this day and age.
You truly are the sole reason we pushed on for as long as we did and we will cherish the memories forever and never forget your unconditional love!
It is our hope that the flame will burn once again and hopefully resurrect this Swedish bastard sometime in the future. Time will tell…
For now; Au Revoir
Dave, Liv, Jimmy, Strand.
Being in a band who spend a lot of time in a small space takes a lot of work, time and dedication. The metal world is very sorry to see them go but we wish them the best of luck in their future endeavors and hope to one day again see Sister Sin on the stage again.
