This Saturday in Cork will be my last show with Jenova. would be cool if a few of the people I'm mates with down there came out for the last time to listen to me scream, growl and roar obscenities at you.
This has not been an easy decision to make and it is not easy to type this. I am not going to go listing all my reasons as they are my own personal reasons, I will say a few things however, Also I am burnt out from social media and people messaging me about the band so I do ask that you please respect my privacy on the matter, All I have to say I will say here.
Living in Ireland especially Dublin its getting harder and harder, I'm one of the few people on this Ireland who dosnt just get by by drinking, snorting,smoking and whatever the fuck else the weekends away and going back to getting pissed all over by a broken society and corrupt system fucking us everyday. Ive been swimming against a strong current with lead weights for a long time and I see others around me doing the same. If you ever read any of the Lyrics I wrote you will see this a reoccuring theme in our music.
My escape was Jenova, to be honest I don't know what the fuck I would have done with out it. It allowed me to be who I am, say what I want and feel how I feel. I'm pretty honest about things I I hope that came across in my performances and in the music an even when I talked shit on the microphone. If you never got to see us play. Tough shit lol we gigged like fuck. Gigged to no one and gigged to everyone we could and often left ourselves, Broke, Exhausted and burnt out doing it. Would I change it...........No
Ive been seeing whats been happening a lot of other bands lately, getting charged to sell their merch in some venues making their merch unaffordable, making less that pennies off online streaming services after hours and hours of work and passion going into their art. my advice to any other bands or promoters reading this, Treat your music as are love it and dont settle for nothing when you dont have to settle.Bands put in a shit lot of work they are the attraction, Respect them and treat them as such.
