Damn Dice call it quits
UK rockers Damn Dice consisting of lead vocalist Alex, lead guitarist Wallis, bassist Marco and drummer François have just announced earlier today that the band is over.
Damn Dice released three albums — Wild ‘N’ Ready (2013), The Great Unknown (2015) and Thriller Killer (2018). Back in August 2018, Damn Dice announced that they would not be releasing albums in the traditional format anymore but rather releasing songs along the way. In early March 2019, Damn Dice announced that their rhythm guitarist Diego would be leaving the group to focus on his own band Die Ego and his music school Guitar Club London. No replacement for Diego was seemingly ever announced. On March 23, 2019, the group announced that it was recording new songs.
The following message was posted on Damn Dice‘s Facebook page earlier today:
“Hey guys. We would like to formally announce that as of today Damn Dice is over.
It has been a great ride and we would like to thank all of you who have supported us over the years, come to see the shows and made it worth doing.
We would like to thank those who gave their time and talent to the band; Bobby Valentine, Gabriele Randy Giarrusso, Mat Bald, Diego Ignacio Fardel and James Evans.
Damn Dice has been our lives for so long and we have had many unforgettable moments. We remain the best of friends. We are proud that we have had as long a run as we have, but we have decided that it is time to stop.
Once again, a massive thanks to all the fans over the years. We are happy to have been a little part of your world, as you have been a part of ours. We appreciate it.
Alex, Marco, Francois, Wallis
Damn Dice‘s “Story” on their Facebook page (updated up to may 30, 2018) indicates (with slight edits):
“Hailing from 4 different countries, Damn Dice members founded the band in 2011 in London (UK) and started getting a lot of attention for their music which mixes current low tuning modern metal vibe with hard rock vocals. Think KISS meets Five Finger Death Punch! As a result, it’s a modern sounding band with big bouncy guitar riffs, catchy melodies, sing along choruses, and guitar solos.
Live, Damn Dice relentlessly entertain the audience with a proper Rock ‘N’ Roll show. Expect jumping, headbanging, climbing stuff, spitting beer and running around like there’s no tomorrow!
Creating a niche of their own with their ‘Too metal for the rockers, too catchy for the metalheads, too punk for the pop rockers, too heavy for the punks’ kind of music, Damn Dice reinforced this idea by releasing an EP in 2013 and a debut album, ‘The Great Unknown’ in 2015.
Both releases were followed by an incredible response from the music industry, with music videos on rotation on Scuzz TV, interviews, features and reviews in MetalHammer, Classic Rock Magazine, and Kerrang and a large amount of radio airplay around the globe.
Incredible response from the fans has brought the band to play esteemed venues and festivals around the UK and Europe, such as Hard Rock Hell Festival, Breaking Bands Festival, and the prestigious Electric Ballroom of Camden Town, UK.
Damn Dice are currently in the process of releasing a second album with producer James Loughrey (Queen, Def Leppard, The Darkness, Skindred ,…) for the summer of 2018, which will play a great part in the adventure of the band. Be there!”
