108 Vocalist Robert Fish has officially announced his departure from hardcore act 108. Their new album “18.61″ will still be released April 13 through Deathwish Inc. and as of right now there will not be any final shows or shows in support of the new album.
Robert Fish released the following statement:
“Aside from the practical side of being in a band with members spread throughout different continents I have found myself struggling to find my place within 108 due to the personal evolution I have gone through. I still find myself, at my core, aligned to the spirit of 108 but I am no longer comfortable with what 108 represents to most people and how that aligns to who I am. Over the years I have tried my best to disregard that aspect of being in 108 but I am tired of answering the questions about it and, more importantly, wrestling with how I address it personally without misrepresenting the rest of the band. We are a band with meaning but not a band defined by a meaning. What does that mean exactly?“
