2003-10-09 Sad but true: After 7 years, the band SERUM will no longer exist in this line-up.
The main reason for this breakup is the fact that the musical tastes and interests of the individual band members have become more and more diverse. So it got increasingly difficult to write songs that were "compatible" with everybody's perception of music.
But all of us will continue and appear in other bands, so please check this website for news once in a while!
Finally, a big THANKS to our fans for your support during all this time!
