FANS of an Ilkeston rockband are mourning the end for Isolysis.

The unsigned five piece announced news of the split on Facebook yesterday and hundreds of tributes and well wishes have been posted since.

Manager, Tracy Holland, said: “I never thought my final task as Isolysis manager would be announcing the end of an era and bringing everything to a close. I always expected to be handing the boys over to a professional management company, possibly attached to a major label (we all know they are more than capable) but sadly, this is not to be the case.

“There are so many clichés which could be applied here, such as ‘Everything happens for a reason’, ‘All good things come to an end’, ‘For a door to open, sometimes one needs to close’ .... funnily enough, these are all so relevant. All the members have different reasons for moving on, but all have plans to stay within the music industry in various degrees and guises. I know they will all do well in their particular fields as they are all so talented and great guys to work with.

“The journey we have all been on has been more than eventful and it’s been such a pleasure to be involved with such a force to be reckoned with! The level of support that everyone has shown us all has been phenomenal and I know this is because of everyone’s unquestionable, pure belief in the talent Isolysis possessed.”
