Sad news for fans of Louisville-based hardcore band Coliseum, though many of their fans no doubt expected it. It seems the trio decided to part ways some time ago, but only decided to make it publicly official recently. Here’s former frontman Robert Patterson:
Near the end of 2015, Coliseum quietly decided to end our twelve year run and the band went on indefinite hiatus. Because it felt so personal, we chose to not publicly announce it at the time. Soon after, I began work on my next musical endeavor: Fotocrime…Your support of Coliseum throughout the years was so greatly appreciated and I look forward to many new adventures with Fotocrime. All my love. – R.
For a taste of what Patterson (now going by the name Robert Pattern) has been up to, you can check out the new Fotocrime track, “Always Hell,” below. It’s from their upcoming debut 7-inch/digital EP of the same name, which is due out May 12th. Pre-orders are available here.
Fotocrime also announced a few upcoming shows, where they’ll appear in support of Russian Circles. Dates are below the video!
