Crossover thrash legends M.O.D. have announced that they have split up for the third time in their career, and cancelled their plans to tour later this year. The reason they are splitting up is because frontman Billy Milano chose not to release any M.O.D. albums or take the band on tour again in order to concentrate on his private life. The band explains:
“As true and dedicated musicians that we are, MOD was one of our huge inspirations and by a lucky shot, we got in the band. For any great, good reason that a light shined our way…that was MOD. We apologize to the fans, to everyone who’s been waiting on us on the road. Billy has denied MOD and without MOD, we can’t go on. We wish Billy our gratitude for all the great times we’ve spent with the band. We look further down the road for bigger and better things. We wish Billy the best.
Signed, The Band…”
M.O.D. previously broke up in 1997 and again in 2008. Their last studio album, Red, White & Screwed, was released in 2007, and nearly a year ago, they released a new song for free called “Hermano”.
