Ruiner announces dates for final shows

Hardcore outfit Ruiner have announced the dates for their final shows. While the details aren’t all available yet, the shows will be held in Baltimore, MD on October 5th and 9th. Between now and then they will be playing one last European tour. To see those dates, check here.

Ruiner released their third full-length for Bridge Nine, Hell Is Empty, in September of 2009, and recently made the decision to call it quits.



Breakup: Ruiner is ruined

Poor start to a Friday for Ruiner fans. After six years, 700+ shows, several releases, countless tours of North America, Europe, Australia and Asia, the band will be calling it a day in October 2010. Vocalist Rob Sullivan commented,

“This wasn’t an easy choice to make. All of us started playing in bands when we were in middle school and for the first time in 12-13 years, some of us won’t be having band practice on a weekly basis. But we know this is a choice we needed to make. We always ran this band at 100% and some of us now feel like we don’t have the desire to tour anymore. We aren’t the kind of band who wants to release records and rarely play the music, so we decided it is now an appropriate time to hang it up. We got to see the world a few times over and with that met a lot of incredible people. We will all be forever grateful for that, but we know this decision is the right one to make. I’m sure I could give many more reasons as to why, but the gist of it is if this band can’t be done at full speed, we feel it is better to stop.”

Ruiner released their third full-length for Bridge Nine, Hell Is Empty, in September of 2009.

The band has a European tour scheduled this July with Carpathian which will go on as scheduled, as well as a highly-coveted appearance at the sold out THIS IS HARDCORE festival in Philadelphia on August 15th.

Ruiner announce “Dead Weight” EP

bridgeninerecords10As Ruiner gears up to release their upcoming full-length, “Hell Is Empty”, on September 22nd, they will be releasing their teaser EP – the “Dead Weight” EP.

Featuring the track “Dead Weight” off of “Hell Is Empty” and two exclusives, “Constrictor” and “Ruiner” (Nine Inch Nails cover), the EP will be available on September 8th via Bridge Nine Records and was recorded with J. Robbins during the Hell Is Empty sessions.

Vocalist Rob Sullivan said, “the song ‘Dead Weight’ is about my distaste for where I work and the neighborhood in which I live and how sometimes, regardless of your ability to breathe, you are already dead.” And regarding the Nine Inch Nails cover, “Ruiner”, Rob commented, “NIN is one band who I have loved since I was in middle school, and I still listen to them on the regular. It is where we got our name from and we knew one day we would try to pull off recording the song ‘Ruiner.’ Hopefully we did it justice.” Interesting fact: J. Robbins actually plays the odd synth guitar part that is done with a keyboard on the original version of the song.

Ruiner announce recording plans for new LP, “Hell Is Empty”

bridgeninerecordsBridge Nine’s anti-heroes Ruiner will be heading into The Magpie Cage with producer J. Robbins (Paint It Black, Against Me, The Promise Ring) beginning on July 6th to record their follow-up to 2007’s critically acclaimed “Prepare To Be Let Down”. The new record will be titled “Hell Is Empty” and is slated for a September 22nd release.

From the band’s official statement:

While the record is a step forward musically, it will return to a less “safe” writing style that Ruiner has taken in the past. Hell Is Empty will no doubt be some of Ruiner’s best and most dynamic work to date.

You can read the full statement on the band’s myspace blog.
