Ruiner Calls It a Day (2004-2010)
700+ shows, countless releases and six years later Ruiner will be calling it quits as of October 5th, which is the anniersary Vocalist Rob Sullivan commented, “This wasn’t an easy choice to make. All of us started playing in bands when we were in middle school and for the first time in 12-13 years, some of us won’t be having band practice on a weekly basis. But we know this is a choice we needed to make. We always ran this band at 100% and some of us now feel like we don’t have the desire to tour anymore. We aren’t the kind of band who wants to release records and rarely play the music, so we decided it is now an appropriate time to hang it up. We got to see the world a few times over and with that met a lot of incredible people. We will all be forever grateful for that, but we know this decision is the right one to make. I’m sure I could give many more reasons as to why, but the gist of it is if this band can’t be done at full speed, we feel it is better to stop.”
of their first show.
Since 2009 Ruiner released their third-full length for Bridge 9 and were on tour non-stop promoting Hell Is Empty. Bridge Nine owner Chris Wrenn commented, “It’s a sad day at B9HQ. Ruiner was one of the best and hardest working bands the label has ever worked with and we are sad to see them throw in the towel, but understand the circumstances. We wish them all the best of luck with their future endeavors.”
