Former The Haunted Frontman Explains Why He Quit Music
He quit The Haunted for the second time in 2012 and went on to release a solo album, Thieves And Liars, in 2013 before joining IAmFire, who issued the Eyes Wide Open EP earlier this year. He left that band in April and moved to Brazil.
Dolving says: "Most have accepted that I am not actively pursuing a career in music anymore." He continues: "People who work in music just donīt get marketing. What I have come to see is that 'the music business' - one that could really be an amazing thing, with potential for true positive influence in society, is a mess.
"It should be a based in basic cultural contextual facts that make it beautiful. But instead I found disgust, unwillingness and ignorance. Narcissists, and even psychopaths in far too many positions of power. People who don't have abstract conceptual understanding, and the necessary skill sets to act in way that is good for the companies they run or work for." Read his full comments here.
