FASTER INFERNO (formerly RAIDERS OF ROCK N' ROLL), the British band featuring guitarist Tyson Schenker — the son of the legendary SCORPIONS and UFO guitarist Michael Schenker — has called it a day. The group's official statement on the matter reads as follows:

"Sadly, it reaches a point when everything comes to an end. Faster Inferno has reached this point. We have finished as a band, with every member deciding to take their seperate ways.

"We would like to thank everyone who has been involved with us for the past few years; we have enjoyed every second of it. Again, we would like to thank everyone who has supported us!"

Tyson Schenker is currently looking to join or form a new band.

FASTER INFERNO supported MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP on the U.K. leg of their "Tales of Rock 'n' Roll World Tour 2006". The Cambridgeshire blues-influenced hard rock act, which also included singer Matt Taylor, bassist Gianzo and drummer Phill France, released the 2004 EP "Strippers & Beards" under its previous moniker.

FASTER INFERNO performed at Germany's Wacken Open Air festival in early August. Check out video clips at YouTube.com:
