Interview - Karyn Crisis - Crisis RIP

It was a sad, sad day recently when I spoke to the amazing Karyn Crisis about the hiatus the band was taking. I am a recent convert to the band and it was a shock to get the news that the band was taking a break.

The difference in Karyn's voice was striking. I spoke to her a year ago when the band was on the road in support of their amazing "Like Sheep Led to Slaughter". At that time, she was exuberant and really looking forward to laying down some tracks for a new record later that fall.

This time out, she was polite but curt, unwilling to discuss any of the reasons behind the break up. I tried to approach it from a couple of different angles and finally she told me, "Out of respect for everyone, Iím not making any comments on it. You know what I mean?" This was delivered in a tone that I knew meant this was something I should not fool with.

I knew from that, there were major issues in the band and that the hiatus idea was not her doing. She was unsure of the state of the recordings the band had done in recent months and the status of the long-awaited Crisis DVD.

When I asked her if we would hear from her again in any other avenue, she was not quite positive but relatively unwavering in her answer. She said probably not and while you could never be 100% sure, it was doubtful. She said that Crisis had changed her musical compass and she would not be able to play any other music styles, so essentially it was Crisis or it was nothing.

Karyn said she was busy with her paintings and she hoped to get shown in some galleries in the new future and this would be her focus for the foreseeable future.

Karyn: Right now Iím actually painting which is something I havenít done in quite a while. So Iím working on a collection of paintings. Iím going to start working on my new website so Iíll have a gallery up there. Iím just going to concentrate on doing a little bit of leather, but mostly Iím concentrating on my art. So, itís exciting for me, something I havenít done and Iíd like to try and get into galleries and into the whole art circuit. So weíll see. Iím painting, and painting and painting and it feels so good. Other than band artwork I havenít really time to do much else. Really donít have the time, so itís something I havenít done in a long time. All sorts of new things are coming out that I didnít even know that I could do. (laughs) So itís really exciting.
