Chimaira - Rockers Chimaira Split

Heavy rockers Chimaira have split after 15 years.

Frontman Mark Hunter announced the sad news in a statement on Thursday (04Sep14), thanking fans for their support.

He writes, "After fifteen full-blown a**-ripping years, it is with great honor (sic) to announce the end of Chimaira... Everyone involved with the band, from members to fans, put their heart and soul into this project. We achieved a lot. We bled a lot. It f**king ruled."

Hunter's statement comes days after guitarist Emil Werstler quit the band, closely followed by Matt Szlachta, Sean Zatorsky, bassist Jeremy Creamer and drummer Austin D'Amond.

The band has also released a collective statement, which reads: "For us, this was a great stepping stone, and an honor to play these songs live, and fulfill an incredible legacy. This was an an excellent platform to help continue playing music when our collective bands either ended or went on a hiatus. Chimaira was an amazing experience and we look forward to future music endeavors with each other."

The band released seven studio albums, including last year's (13) Crown Of Phantoms.
