Poison The Well going on hiatus

Another unfortunate news piece. Influential metallic hardcore noiseniks Poison The Well have decided to go on indefinite hiatus and may have called it a day after 12 years together. The band released this statement:

So, after twelve years of being a band, countless tours around the world and records being released, we have made the decision to take some time to explore other interests in our lives. We’ve all reached a point where we feel like we need to take a step back from the band and pursue other things. PTW has been an all encompassing, full time thing for such a long period that this isn’t an easy thing to do. We want to thank everyone who has supported us in anyway, whether it be buying a record or a shirt, to the occasional robbery from time to time. Once again, thanks for everything and we couldn’t have done any of this without you.

Love, PTW

Poison The Well enjoyed some notoriety with some visceral stunning records. To say 1999’s The Opposite Of December was before its time would be a vast understatement. Similarly with You Come Before You and all records prior and after, PTW’s quality never fell below impressive. However they never quite reached the high level of repute they so richly deserved. Here's hoping they return and if so stronger than ever.
