Published Dec 17, 2014It's been over four years since Despised Icon announced they were breaking up and spending the rest of 2010 honouring their tour obligations and playing four final Canadian shows: two in Toronto and two in their hometown of Montreal.
Thankfully, the Canadian deathcore veterans announced some European reunion shows earlier this year, followed by four North American dates. Exclaim! TV was lucky enough to catch up with vocalist Alex Erian before the band's recent Toronto show to film a new segment for Aggressive Tendencies.
Speaking with Exclaim! TV, Erian explained the band's reasons behind initially breaking up, what they've been up to since then, their recent reunion, current touring set lists, and what will happen to the group after their Worcester, Massachusetts show on December 21 (hint: the band haven't hammered the final nail into the coffin yet).
