Here are Toni's and Dean's messages from the Official Website at
Sad news for Curve fans! :( I was actually listening to one of
their albums when I went to their site and saw the messages...
MESSAGE FROM TONI ON 31.1.2005.....
Dear Fans Everywhere,
Before I start I would just like to thank all of you for your loyalty
and commitment to Curve over the years, it has been a lifesaver on
many a dark night. Unfortunately after much thought and consideration
I have come to the realisation that I can no longer continue with
Curve on a musical level and have therefore decided to pursue other
avenues. I won't go into details but a few things happened to me last
year that really drained me of any confidence I had and made me
realise it was time to move on or be in danger of becoming bitter and
twisted and losing my love for music. I have also felt less and less
fulfilled with my position in Curve over the last few years and
seemed to be no longer enjoying my work as much as I have in the
past. I do intend to do small one off projects in the future but
nothing that needs the time and commitment of a full time band. I
hope that you understand my feelings on this, we have been together a
long time and I feel that it has come to it's natural end with a lot
of good work achieved in the last 15 years. I wish YOU all the best
for the future,
THE TRUTH IS WE HAVE KNOWN ABOUT THIS FOR QUITE A WHILE...TONI HAS
BEEN UNHAPPY WITH CURVE FOR SOMETIME WHICH IS NEVER A GOOD RECIPE FOR
WRITING AND RECORDING...YOU HAVE TO LOVE IT OTHERWISE IT NEVER
WORKS...I CAN UNDERSTAND HER FEELINGS COMPLETELY AND WISH HER MANY
HAPPY HAPPY JOYFUL DAYS AHEAD AND EVERY SUCCESS WITH ANY FUTURE
