Guatemalan-American DJ and record producer, Carnage has officially announced his retirement from EDM music and touring.
He will venture on a 5-show grand finale tour named “Carnage & Rare Presents: Thank You.” These shows will be the last show his fans can experience a CARNAGE performance.
Tickets go on sale this Monday, details can be found on ThankYouCarnage.com.
Carnage says: ‘Today marks the beginning of a new chapter in my life.
After 14 years, CARNAGE has been put to rest and is officially dead.
As many of you know, I grew up in Guatemala and came to the U.S. as a child who did not speak any English. The descendant of illegal immigrants, my family came to America to pave the way for a better life for me.
It’s honestly hard to describe the ups and downs in my life as Carnage over the past 14 years. Today you see all the success and the flash, but what you didn’t see was my struggle. Years of grinding trying to turn my dreams into reality, countless nights in the studio, sleeping on friends couches, scraping money together to get by. I was just a kid with a dream and looking back I really do pinch myself.
I started my journey as CARNAGE in 2008 and together, with the help of my loyal fans, have been able to achieve some of my wildest dreams. From working with music icons like Avicii, Drake, Swedish House Mafia, MIGØS, Tïesto, Young Thug, The Martinez Brothers, and Kanye West to selling out clubs, theaters, arenas, stadiums, and festivals around the world, all I can say is – THANK YOU – it truly means the world.
ASOC Family, you mean everything to me. I would be nothing without my fans, I cant describe how many of you have touched my soul and changed my life, you are what kept me going these past 14 years. ASOC Family will live on forever.
Unfortunately all good things must come to an end, but that doesn’t mean we can’t go out in style. If CARNAGE is going to die there must be – A Grand Finale.
