Glyder Split Up
Irish rockers Glyder have split up. And it appears a number of factors led to this decision.
Guitarist Bat Kinane has issued the following statement:
“Things changed for Glyder before the making of the third album [Yesterday, Today And Tomorrow, released earlier this year] and since then it’s been a struggle to keep going. Signing with SPV seemed like the Holy Grail, but the year it took to finalize the deal saw us all move in different directions. Financial strain and other factors wore away at the band for the past two years. The band seemed to be surrounded by incompetent people who did not fulfill their roles.
“I don’t want to make personal attacks on anyone or get in to bitter feuds but you all know the story of the rotten apple and that’s part of what happened to Glyder. It’s a long story and as my ties to the band are deeper than music, I won’t be airing my dirty linen in public.
“I am a little sore as I put so much effort into this band but I will be taking a positive approach to the future and continuing on writing, recording and performing, blogging and doing what I do.
“I have material written for what was to be Glyder’s fourth album. I am a serious songwriter and I have chosen to make music my career so if any international bands out there want a serious player to get involved with my options are open.”
Kinane has just released a solo album, A Lifetime To Kill, in Ireland.
