The morning coffee was interrupted by the sad news about the Swedish Hard Rock band Sister Sin who have decided to call it a day and disband. The official statement was found on their Facebook Page
“As of today, November 7th 2015, SISTER SIN is no more.
We know this may come as a surprise to many of you; honestly, it kinda took us by surprise too.
What was supposed to be a short eight weeks break, suddenly & unfortunately, turned in to the demise of the band.
– We have been touring and recording in a relentless schedule since 2008 and I guess we burned the candle in both ends and hit a wall. When we finally had the opportunity to step back and get some perspective, the motivation for some members in the band just wasn’t there any more…
Would like to take this opportunity and thank our beloved road crew, Victory Rec, Danger Music, Artery Foundation, TKO & all other great people and companies we worked with these past seven years as a professional touring act.
Most of all we would like to thank YOU; Our dedicated, devoted, loving and caring fans around the globe! We´ve truly been blessed to be able to travel the world and meet so very many of you Sinners. -Together we managed to sell tens of thousands of albums and achieve what most young bands only can dream of in this day and age. You truly are the sole reason we pushed on for as long as we did and we will cherish the memories forever and never forget your unconditional love!
It is our hope that the flame will burn once again and hopefully resurrect this Swedish bastard sometime in the future. Time will tell…
For now; Au Revoir, Sincerely
Dave, Liv, Jimmy, Strand – SISTER SIN”
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Wow this really sucks but unless you have ever played in a band you do not know how hard it is to keep the motivation and positive outlook going strong no matter how hard you try. This applies even to your locally based talent which doesn’t even come close to how demanding it is to be in a band that is touring the world whenever the means allow. I loved what Sister Sin was all about and was fortunate enough to be able to meet them all during their visits to our neck of the woods and support them with the camera and words on this website. Good people for sure and rock solid musicians that left me hungry for more tunes each and every time I caught their set. Speaking frankly, I felt that the group was usually the uneven option on tours that didn’t benefit their cause all that much based on who was headlining. To be the early band on a tour where the fans are getting there super late is no help to ones musical reach. To me the best tour they joined up on that visited here was Doro Pesch from a few years ago but that is one out of four times that I even think they came over here. The USA didn’t get Sister Sin here all that much and it was a shame since they always delivered on the live stage and were so stoked to talk to their new fans after the set at the merchandise table. I was hopeful that a quick return would come after the debacle that the last Rockstar Mayhem Fest became because the band was rocking the socks and making new fans with each gig even though they were tossed right into the middle of numerous Metalcore bands. I know its not the last that I will be dealing with their individual members as a press outlet because they are all too talented individually for me to not find them working with other people soon enough but I do wish this wasn’t something that I had to report on.
Perhaps if those Metalheads who read sites like this one and see what they missed out on in the past and purchase those Victory Records albums (which are linked below on Amazon for your pleasure) that enough of a public outcry will happen and the band will reconsider this move. Only time will tell but until then I wish them all the very best of luck in any pursuit they are taking. The photos below were taken near the bands minibus at the 2015 Mayhem Fest. It was great to see them again and they rocked for sure. Goodbye Sister Sin, until the next time we meet in whatever fashion that will be. Thank you for the music you brought to our ears.
What did you readers think of this band if you had seen them before in concert or were just enjoying their music on album or video? Let your voices be heard in the comments section on this post. I ask that you submit something here as opposed to the social nets since it adds more value to the piece right here. Bring it on and I will make sure that they see it.
