    Vehemence no more?

    why?
    I thought everything was going good
    you guys were working on new material and all that


    but this is terrible news
    another great band gone
    sucks cause I missed you guys the 2 times you came to NE

    [OCTOBER 14, 2005 - VEHEMENCE HAS CALLED IT QUITS. THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

    8 years after it all started, we decided that now is the time to throw in the towel. It was fun, and we would like to thank all the people who have supported us along the way. Vehemence was and is a huge part of our lives, but at this point its time to start fresh. The death of Vehemence has since spawned 3 new bands from its ex members. Abigail Williams featuring Mark, Andy and Bjorn of Vehemence (www.myspace.com/abigailwilliams), He Who Binds Himself featuring Nathan (www.myspace.com/hewhobindshimself), and as John stated “I'm looking for members for a new band and I am also available for touring. Currently I'm also affiliated with several other side projects which I will release soon.”

    We still have a batch of new shirts coming this year, as well as a new remixed version of our first self released disc entitled The Thoughts From Which I Hide, that will be available exclusively at www.vehemence.com. Vehemence may do shows every now and then, but will not be a full time band. Just keep checking our website as that will still be up and running.]

    I was not expecting this at all
    I thought with Adam joining everything was gonna go good

    I guess thier is a reason that Bjorn, Mark and now Andy are in Abigail Williams

    Well, I respect them for going out the way they did. At least they didn't release a half-assed album before they called it quits. It sucks that Vehemence is no more, but they left on a good note.

    It blows to hear you guys are calling it quits. I hope to see you guys doing something else... Still sucks I never saw you live.

    You guys were amazing, and both your releases are amoung my favourites. Good luck to all you guys in your future bands... Abagail Williams is definately a good band... And I have faith in He Who Binds Himself, without having heard any material... Nate is an awesome vocalist.

    Vehemence was a killer band, and I'm proud to say I was and am a fan.

    This is really sad. I have only been a fan for a couple of months, but the band has made an incredibly huge impression on me.
    Thanks for great music, and good luck with your future plans!

    Yah guys, it is true. I tried hard to persuade the guys to keep it together, but they felt this was the best time to throw in the towel and move on to the next chapter. I started to feel it too after what was said and presented. Basically, the overall vibe of Vehemence was decreasing. The songs were good, and I think the whole thing with Sean Vandegrift not producing lyrics for 6 months, and not moving down to Phoenix had something to do with the frustration and tension within the band leading to its demise. It would have been an awesome new Vehemence record, a lot of twists and turns in the music, most diverse record ever. With replacing Nathan Gearhart founder of Vehemence, and creator of the name, it would be a different kind of presence; it would also be far from the lyrics/stories with another guy writing for us. We didn’t really give Adam Cody a chance to write a whole lot either maybe a couple weeks and the stuff he came up with was pretty awesome stuff to say the least. Some bands just overwrite their old singers and move on with a new vibe and new era, but that wasn’t the case with us unfortunately.

    It’s a shame we didn’t quit during the peak of our career, that’s usually 5 albums in with some worldwide touring, but better now than later I guess. I am upset about this, just like all the others out there that really dug our band expecting something new and groundbreaking. A lot of new material will not be heard in the Vehemence fashion, done by Dannov, Schroeder, & Kozuback anymore instead you’ll hear bits and pieces of it in the other bands/projects we are affiliated with. Hope you guys enjoy whatever music we put out next. Myself, I am going to try to pursue a life on the road that can tour for 2 years straight with a band I create, join up with, or collaborate with, and I think with working with the right diehard 110% individuals, that will occur.

    its just seemed like the right thing to do. Trust me, I'm bummin on this... Seeing what people are saying really bums me out. The Black Dahlia dudes even said something on stage last night... made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, heh. But without Nate, it was just something else. Don't get me wrong, if we did record the new album, it would have been great still but not Vehemence. We'd have to prove ourselves, and thats a load of shit. I really think we came up with some of our strongest music this year though. Some of the tunes I wrote are gonna be used in my new band, Abigial Williams. I'm sure John will use his songs in his next band. If you want to hear what the next Vehemence could have been, you're just gonna have to check out our new bands once we put some cd's out. Abigail Williams is going into the studio at the end of the month. We should have an EP out on a small European label in the upcoming months. I'll keep you all posted.
