The end of the road
Current mood: optimistic
Category: Life

O.K. Listen up. its time for some sad news....The Servant are splitting up! there will be no new Servant albums. after ten years we have reached the end of our road together and its time to move on to pastures new. Dan will be pursuing his musical career in some form or another (look for him on myspace or facebook), the rest of us will disappear back into obscurity i would imagine. So i would just like to say this...Thanks to all of you lot for showing us such love and support over the years and for making being in the band such an unforgettable experience. its a bit of a shame we couldnt play more over here in England or that you lot couldnt all come out to France or Italy to see thousands of people singing along to Orhestra, Liquefy, How to Destroy and all the rest. What a fucking blast! still, the last couple of Hoxton shows where as rocking as anyone could wish for I think. I will be keeping this site going for a little while but my presence will be getting less and less a the weeks go by. i have got so used to doing this that its gonna be hard to cut the cord i think. I hope you all have long and happy lives, you've certainly made mine worth living for the last few years. Cheers to you all, XXX Matt Fisher. Rock Star. (Retired). P.S. if i ever get round to making a solo album i'll let you know, o.k.

And Dan:

Varying stories have begun to circulate on the internet and radio so I thought maybe someone from within the band should say something to you guys about recent events. We have decided to take an indefinite break from being "The Servant".

We have been together now for a long (long!) time and basically fancy doing some new things. We would like to thank you all for all the great support you have given us. This is a sad but exciting moment.

Personally, I am going to be coming back very soon with some new music, which I will let you know about shortly. Well, not sure what else to say about it really, hope this isnt too upsetting for any of you....

Take care for now

How do you guys feel about this?

I feel awful , terrible, i'm going to burn my little shrine that i keep of them in my bedroom right now.

well, ok, I feel disappointed and sad that i missed my opportunity to see them when i was in Paris, and now i will never get to hear them play any of their lovely songs, some of which are quite possibly my favourite songs from anyone anywhere. And of course this is not important, but i reckon it's a bit sad, since a band with such originality and talent as the Servant could have conquered THE WORLD. Every person i have introduced their music to has loved it. It's seems almost crazy that they should throw in the towel now when they are at their peak.

Ah well,
It was awesome while it lasted

PS:i'll keep you guys posted on any band-related news.
