Published May 22, 2008When it comes to naming a band Cursed, the idea isn't exactly to try and experience it, but it appears after years and years of bad shit happening, Toronto's Cursed have finally hit that wall they always feared would eventually come.
While on tour in Europe, the four-piece were recently robbed of their passports, money, "all costs of the tour" and perhaps most importantly, faith. And now, according to a posting titled "When Your Number's Up" on their blog dated today (May 22), front-man Chris Colohan announced the theft was "a bullet in the head, the end of the line. A sudden and totally fucked up way for it to end, which I know will be fitting when I look back on it."
Here's the full posting:
Yeah, you heard. Apparently, it gets even worse. That's all I know or even want to know for now. We got robbed at the very end of tour in a totally unreal, extremely sketchy series of events that still makes no sense at all, only leads to paranoia, anger and a total loss of faith. Passports, money, all the costs of the tour. Either way, whoever did it, it was a bullet in the head, the end of the line. A sudden and totally fucked up way for it to end, which I know will be fitting when I look back on it. All we could do was play the show, badly, and go our ways with whatever money we could muster. I hitched a ride back to Prague with Tomas. Since I can't do a fucking thing about it, I'm going to hang out with my girl, and friends, stare at some Czech mountains and try not to think about it. Needless to say, all outstanding plans are off. All this shit aside, thanks to everyone that helped out and travelled from all over for the shows on this tour, all the kids and bands we played and stayed with. Minus a few fucked up shows, it was probably the best tour we ever had. Thanks everyone for your good wishes. I'll elaborate when I'm home next week, for now - yes it's true, and yes it's over.
