After six years together, hardcore rockers CONFIDE have announced they’ll officially part ways as a band upon their return from Japan.


“I want to let our fans know that the break-up is a positive thing and that everyone in the band is still friends without any hard feelings,” explains lead singer ROSS KENYON. “We decided that Confide would come to an end after our Japan tour in early October.”


From the group, “We do plan on playing some ‘farewell’ shows on the West Coast and we’ll announce those final dates and details once we return from Japan. We want to thank fans with these shows and let them know we truly appreciate their support over the years. It’s hard to see CONFIDE end, but we know that God has a new chapter for our lives right now. Every member of the band remains friends and the band breaking up was not due to any one person–it was a group decision.”

Stay tuned for more information on the farewell dates for CONFIDE.
