Diablo Blvd Announces Break Up; Posts Final Music Video “The Song Is Over” Online

With four studio albums under their belt, headline tours, support slots for metal giants such as Machine Head, Epica, and Life Of Agony plus several appearances at Europe’s biggest festivals: Belgian dark rock outfit Diablo Blvd’s career has brought them countless remarkable events and made them travel back and forth across the continent. Sadly, the band has decided to call it quits. They recently issued the following statement:

“To all of you reading this message, we will start by announcing our first headline show ever at the legendary Ancienne Belgique venue on the 10th of December 2018. For some reason we never played the AB before so we’re absolutely thrilled to finally head over to one of Belgium’s most beautiful venues. No doubt this will be a night to remember especially because it will also be our last show ever. Yes, you’re reading this right: the DB is calling it a day.

“We can imagine this might come as a surprise to many of you. Even for us it feels unreal knowing that we are about to close a very important chapter in our lives. Over the last 13 years we’ve seen a lot of things come and go but we always did this our way. There’s no negativity here, there’s only love. We thank you all for your undying support and for giving us the time of our lives. We hereby invite you all to the Ancienne Belgique on the 10th of December for the final curtain. Ticket presale will start tomorrow (Friday 29th of June at 11AM) via abconcerts.be. Regarding all the booked summer shows: we cannot wait to continue our festival run and enjoy every last second of it. Looking forward to see you all out there.”

“Sincerely,
Alex, Andries, Kris, Tim & Jan”

The band has released a video for their last song, aptly titled “The Song Is Over”. It’s a compilation of live footage from Wacken, Graspop, 70000 Tons Of Metal, and many other festivals, shot between 2005 and 2018.

Epica Announces “Design Your Universe” European Shows

Dutch symphonic heavyweights Epica announce a select number of exclusive shows in support of the 10th anniversary of their album Design Your Universe. The album until today holds a special place in the hearts of their fans and includes fan-favorites as “Kingdom Of Heaven” and “Design Your Universe”.

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Design Your Universe the band will return to a number of venues they played while touring on the album back in 2009/2010 which most likely will sell out far in advance.

Simone Simons comments: “After all those years, Design Your Universe remains one of my all-time favorite Epica albums. I know that the message behind the title song also resonates with a lot our fans because there are so many Design Your Universe related tattoos. The title track and ‘Unleashed’ are songs that I hold very dear and the memories we made in that time of our career. I am looking forward to go back in time with you all while we play more songs from our Design Your Universe album.”

Mark Jansen adds” “Design Your Universe is very dear to me, it’s an album that was written during a very inspiring time. The title track shows us that we can we all create our destiny and it’s still one of my favorite tracks to play live. Also, quite a few other songs of the album deserve to be played again and we will! Our set is gonna be filled with DYU songs so don’t miss one of these opportunities.”
