After an initial statement from the band late last week seemed to suggest that black metal/folk legends Agalloch were set to call it a day, founding member John Haughm has taken to the bands Facebbok page to clarify the situation.
Haughm has confirmed that, after the departure of the three others members, Agalloch could possibily be set to continue as a one-man project, although the future of the band remains unclear. You can read his statement below:
‘After being inundated by a barrage of responses, I feel that I should clarify some things. I take full responsibility for the decision to part ways with the other guys. It was difficult, well thought-out, and something that had been culminating over the past couple of years. I simply could not continue any further with the band as it was. I had to make a change as my motivation and inspiration had started to completely deteriorate. Whether this is the permanent end of Agalloch altogether or a possible fresh start, I don’t know. I probably won’t know for awhile. The band has simply been reduced back to its founding member for the first time in 20 years. Beyond that, the future is unknown’.
