Terrible news, everyone. Internet prog darlings Iron Thrones have called it quits.
Iron Thrones is no more.
Our sincerest apologies to those who were looking forward to a new Iron Thrones album. As has been somewhat obvious, we have been on an unplanned hiatus for the past couple of years, and although there were occasional moments of synchronicity, ultimately the flame died out and we gradually moved apart. We had a good run, and met a lot of fantastic people who truly appreciated our music. The same honesty that drove our creative process, now forces us to admit to ourselves that any new material we created as Iron Thrones would be missing what truly made our music special to us, and so it is time to lay this project to rest.
Sometimes, things just don’t turn out the way you would’ve liked. Time passes on, and things that you thought would never change, do. People change. Passions change. Regardless, the world continues to spin, oblivious to the changes within us, and we move on.
With two brilliant albums under their belt — one of which was released by Scion A/V — it’s definitely sad to see them go. If you for some reason are unfamiliar with Iron Thrones, they’re definitely for fans of bands like Burst and Between the Buried and Me. Their work is available on Bandcamp, so go in revel in memorium.
