MY DYING BRIDE have shared an honest statement about their current situation, revealing that there are unresolved internal issues within the band. Only a few days after the release of their 15th studio album “A Mortal Binding” via Nuclear Blast Records, MY DYING BRIDE revealed to social media that there is currently a profound sense of discontent among the band members, that there are “fractures” in the group, and that they are going through challenging times right now. The band admits that they had hoped to perform some gigs in 2024 but seemingly won’t be doing so while these issues remain as they are.

On April 21st, 2024, the band made the following announcement via social media:

“The production of this latest album was arduous and challenging to such an extent that it has revealed fractures within the band. These tensions had already been observed during the creation of the previous two albums and were only exacerbated during the COVID period. Over the past few months, they have intensified, causing a profound sense of discontent among the band members. The resulting stress and the pervasive feeling of burnout, along with the physical and mental malaise it creates, necessitated a period of time off, which unfortunately impacts live shows.
The reason for the lack of an official statement until now is because the band has truly hoped to resolve these internal issues and perform some shows this year while trying to find a resolution in time to satisfy all parties involved. Sadly, this resolution has yet to be found.

Regrettably, a lack of understanding and poor communication from our professional partners has resulted in an untimely and chaotic mess, from which a recovery is challenging. However, the promoters have now been officially contacted and it is hoped that steps can be taken to minimize the impact on you all.

We apologize for keeping you in the dark, but these are indeed challenging times.”

In a new interview, Andrew Craighan, the guitarist of MY DYING BRIDE, addressed the recent announcement that he and his bandmates were canceling all of their previously announced 2024 tour dates, including an appearance at this year’s Maryland Deathfest.

Andrew Craighan said:

“Well, Maryland Deathfest, firstly, shouldn’t have said that, and they know that and have since apologized – well, privately apologized. We have some live problems, which we’re — how best to say it?—massaging, I would say. They’re not insurmountable. I don’t have all the facts just yet, which means I don’t want to blab too much. But we’re in talks with everybody who has the facts, and we will be putting out a statement, basically, that either will explain or at least calm people down as to what’s going on. It’s all a bit weird right now, so it’s difficult to talk about — mainly because I don’t want to say anything out of turn and then everything you say will be used as evidence against you and all that.”
