Vocalist Jot Maxi Quits Hacktivist, Cites Personal Reasons & His Christian Faith


Vocalist Jot Maxi has announced his decision to exit Hacktivist. In the below statement shared yesterday, June 27th, he outlined the reasons he chose to leave the UK rap metal collective.

“This truly was a pain-staking decision, which is why it took so long to make, but I’ve known for some time now that it would be best for everyone involved if I step down as vocalist for Hacktivist.

With the rest of the gang based in various cities across the UK and me living in the South of France, it was never geographically, financially, and most importantly artistically ideal for us to make plans, movements and music together as a band.

I had hoped to stay on board for at least one more album, but I feel that it just wouldn’t be fair for H or for our supporters if we continue at this pace, when things could potentially be much more free-flowing if I step aside to make room for a new dynamic.

There are of course other personal factors leading to this final decision, most notably that during 20201 found the truth within Christianity, and as a result my priorities, ego, and lyrical content shifted greatly and continue to do so.

All else aside, I’m pleased to be able to say that I’m parting on good terms with the band and that I genuinely love each one of these boys.

I will be tuned in to whatever comes next for Hacktivist and I urge all of you to do the same, as I still believe just as I always did, that this band has a vast scope and massive potential.

As for me, I have already released solo material this year and I have no I intention of stopping, it goes without saying that I’m also endlessly grateful for your continued support.

I will never forget the hundreds of H concerts I played across dozens of countries, and most of all the thousands of you I got to proud to have been able to play a part in the Hacktivist legacy. Thank you.
