Safetyword RIP

Too many good bands these days are meeting early graves and Bristol's Safetyword are the latest victims. Not stating any reasons and, seemingly, completely disappearing from the net - both their myspace and site have been deleted - its quite an abrupt ending for an equally uncompromising band. It was a shock to me as when I interviewed them from Drunken Werewolf magazine back in November they were very enthusiastic about their band and its future.
As a parting gesture the band recorded their last ever recording session, which you can order from them for free. Its odd and uneven but a captivating listen nonetheless.

Safetyword - Foxe's Book Of Martyrs
Safetyword - By Jove!
