Norway’s ARCTURUS have officially announced their disbandment via a post on their official website reading:
“A lot of rumours have been going around after our gig in Melbourne. Simen [Haestnes, vocals] opened the concert with the words ‘Welcome to the last ARCTURUS-show ever’. This is a decision we made some time ago. We all have a lot of things going on in our carreers and our lives, and therefore can not find the time to continue working with this band.
“We are humble and grateful to all the people that have supported and loved us over the years.”
ARCTURUS had an illustrious career pushing musical boundries. Their last album, Sideshow Symphonies, was released in 2005.
