THE GATES OF SLUMBER Call It QuitsTuesday, 24th September 2013
Just last week, Indianapolis-based doom metal act THE GATES OF SLUMBER announced the departure of bassist Jason McCash. Now, singer/guitarist Karl Simon has posted he following message via the Hellride Music forum:
Some of you may have noticed that Jason quit THE GATES OF SLUMBER this past week. So, yeah. it’s done. I always said I’d never go on doing TGoS without Jason, I don’t think anyone ever really believed it, but yeah, it’s done. I did start the band, but McCash has been my best friend for the last 20 years, the last 10 in this damn band. He wrote amazing music and was a killer person to be around on the road.
Somewhere about 3 years back shit started to change, and it’s ended with him quitting. I’m sure he needs the break, probably from me… I’m starting to *kind of* get the hint. So yeah. It’s done.”
