It looks like San Diego's Kings of Beatdown WORLD OF PAIN's reign is coming to an end. The band took to Facebook earlier with the following statement:
"Over the past 10 years we've had the pleasure of playing so many great shows, along so many great bands, seeing old friends, making new ones, traveling and performing places we had never even dreamt of playing, both in the US and abroad. A labor of love writing music, handing out demos, making flyers and ultimately releasing multiple records. This band started as a group of youngsters who wanted to bring a sound back to the hardcore scene that we felt was slowly being forgotten… a soundtrack of destruction, an outlet of aggression and a discussion of self-reflection and opposing opinion. As the years have gone on, it’s apparent that the amount of time we’ve been able to dedicate to all of you has become less and less, as band members grow older, get married, have children, etc. Thus, instead of simply fading out of existence, we wanted to make it official and ends things properly. 2019 will mark the final year of World Of Pain. We are currently booking our final appearances around the US and will be playing one final tour in Europe later in the year. From the bottom of our hearts, we want to thank each and every one of you for your continued support. Without all of you, none of this would have ever been possible. Time flies… a decade of pain, a lifetime of memories. #ForeverInPain"
