Sad News in Adelaide's Live Music Scene

4 July 2013

Lacerated Soul are saddened to learn about the closure of The Forrester's and Squatters Arms Hotel as of yesterday.

We've considered The Squatters Arms to be our home venue since January 2011 and have been fortunate enough to play 10 shows there, with a number of memorable shows including our Controlled Brutality EP Launch, The Black Wreath national tour and both our Facemelters Ball shows in July 2012 and February 2013.

We would like to thank Paul Calnan for giving us the opportunity to play so many shows there and all of his support, as well as the many staff who looked after us and our audience during that time including Dick, Amaras, Vicki, Paul W, Pete, Gary, Josh and Critta.

We'll always have fond memories of getting on that small stage and tearing it up at the best dive in town! We hope to cross paths again with the many friends we've made there in the not too distant future!

Thank you Squatters Arms and Stay METAL \m/(X-x)\m/
