Fuck Woe, Is Me with their comma in their stupid name. I hate that shit.
Yes — Woe, Is Me is no mo, is me.
A statement from vocalist Hance Alligood says he’s out and the rest of the band’s done, too.
“The truth is, I’ve been sad for a while. Not necessarily sad, I suppose, just unhappy. I’ve lost the passion for this genre of music I once had and I don’t think it’s ever gonna come back,” he says.
Later. Don’t let the door hit you in the ass on your way out, bra.
“I honestly wish there was more to the story than that. I wish there was something for me to elaborate on and try to get you to wrap your head around this complex story,” he says. “In reality, I decided to leave the band because my heart just wasn’t in it anymore. I could no longer continue faking my happiness and passion for it. It wouldn’t have been fair to the other guys, it wouldn’t have been fair to all our wonderful fans, and it wouldn’t be fair to myself.
“I hope you guys understand why the band decided to call it quits, though. We as a band, even since I joined, have been through numerous member changes. It’s nothing that the band hasn’t overcome before, but I’m sure you can understand at this point, another singer change would not be something the guys would want to subject themselves to. I can’t blame them, and I hope they don’t blame me as the reason for all of this. I love those guys like brothers.
“I do want you (the fans) to know that I held on as long as I could. I know beyond the shadow of a doubt that without you guys, none of this would have even been possible. It took a lot of people a while to come around when I joined the band. I was the new guy, replacing a super talented singer who was an original member and also a power-house vocalist. But at the end of the day, I felt so much love and support from you guys. That love and support is something I will forever be grateful for. Words can’t even explain my love for the fans of this band.”
OK, enough. I’m gonna puke.
Good riddance, and please don’t come back.
