Cutting edge “grime metal” group Hacktivist have announced a farewell run of shows with founding guitarist Timfy James. He will exit the group after their final appearance together at Camden Rocks on the 2nd of June, after 6 years as a unit.
Their final three dates can be found below, including a special final hometown headline show (and afterparty) on May 19th in their home town Milton Keynes, Unit Nine. Tickets are priced at £10 for this little nugget of metal history.
On the announcement of his departure, Timfy says:
I’m very sad to say that I have made the decision to leave Hacktivist. I’ve had an amazing six years touring the world with my brothers and I wish them all the luck moving forward. I also want to thank all of the fans that have supported us this far, without you guys none of this would have been possible. I have every confidence that the band will continue to inspire and push the boundaries of modern music for many more years to come.
Adding to this and divulging the future of the band, bassist Josh Gurner adds:
We’re sad to see Timfy’s time with Hacktivist has come to an end, but we wish the best of luck with his future plans. We want to thank him profusely for the blood, sweat and tears he has put into the band over the past seven years. Timfy has been a driving force in defining the Hacktivist sound, but his departure brings with it the dawn of new ideas and forward thinking. None of this year’s shows will be cancelled, and you will be hearing from us soon with fresh new music.
Final dates with Timfy:
- 4th – Balalec Festival, Switzerland
- 19th – Unit Nine, Milton Keynes (headline)
