Sydney’s Buried In Verona have called it a day. The band will split after one more tour in October.
Buried In Verona formed in the Sydney suburb of Engadine in 2007. They quickly gathered momentum and scored support slots with Frankenbok, Toe To Toe and Daysend then released their debut album ‘Circle The Dead’ in 2008.
The band was never a stable entity. Since 2007 they have had more drummers than Spinal Tap and the only singer Brett Anderson remains from the original line-up. 14 members have left Buried In Verona since the band started.
Official statement from frontman Brett Anderson
“Most people in the heavy music scene, as much as they dread the thought, know that one day this moment will come. The moment most bands have to go through. The moment is the end. The last tour, last album and it feels just as bad as I always knew it would.
After nearly a decade of living, for the most part, something I always dreamed of doing, it’s now time for the end and one last tour.
I want to thank everyone who supported Buried In Verona over the years, whether it was for one album or all five, thank you from the bottom of my heart for listening to our music. It’s the best thing I’ve ever achieved.
To the people who wrote to us saying our music touched you, saved you or helped you in anyway, know that your messages and kind words did more to us that our music did to you, truly honoured that some of you thought about BIV in that amazing way. You guys allowed us to see and do some incredible things around the world and we can never repay you so thank you, thank you, thank you.
This is not the end of music for me as I’ll be continuing with my side project, Don’t Die Like I Did, but I do have to close the chapter of my life that is Buried In Verona.
See you all one last time, Love all the BIV family.”
Buried In Verona will embark on their final Australian tour this October, with Capture The Crown, Foxblood and Arkive joining the band as they say farewell.
