I’m such a fool I can’t be free

So, how many more than me where shocked to learn about Fatal Smile yesterday? I can’t be the only one. I mean, come on. It literally came out of the blue. CD coming out, big tour going on… what the hell man?

I was very confused when I read it. My first impression was that Yxan was just simply leaving the band (at a very bad time) but the more I thought about it, and the more times I read it… the whole band call it quits? Wait what? I understand that bandmembers at times have to leave for whatever reason it may be, but to put the whole band to sleep seems a bit… drastic? And it didn’t get any better given that their drummer said he didn’t even see it coming.

It’s all just odd. But well. What can I say. It’s a shame. I was really looking forward seeing them at Skogsröjet, hell, they were one of the bands I was going there for! I always loved seeing Fatal Smile live, they were one of the greatest livebands to date. I have a good deal of great memories with them – everything from Lordi 2009, to Rockweekend, Skogsröjet and the evening at Glada Ankan together with Anna and a few more.

Thanks for all you’ve given us, Fatal Smile, and good luck all of you in the future!
