The Blackout have announced the heartbreaking news that they have no plans to
follow up their current EP release, ‘Wolves’. It is best said in their own
words, so read their statement below describing the break up as well as a
‘thank you’ to fans and supporters. In March 2015 they will be saying their
official ‘Goodbyes’ with a series of shows throughout the UK ending in
their hometown, Merthyr Tydfil at the Leisure Centre with a very special
show, and big send off for what the band think the fans deserve. This will
mark the end of the road for The Blackout.
Check out the full list of final tour dates and a statement from the band
There’s no point in dancing around the subject, so we’ll cut right to the
chase. We regret to announce that Wolves will be the final release by The
Blackout. Unfortunately we have come to the conclusion we are unable to
sustain this band anymore, and we feel the time is right to bring it to a
close. This is the hardest decision we have ever had to make as a band,
and although we do it with heavy hearts, we also do with our heads held
high. We are all extremely proud of Wolves, and are eternally grateful to
each and every one of you who helped it get made. We said that it would
not exist without your support, and we honestly mean that. We achieved
more than we ever dreamed of when we started this band, and we take with us
memories, relationships and friends that will last the rest of our lives.
We have always said that we’d be nothing without the people who came to
the shows, who stood out in the rain, who camped out overnight and we
want to thank you, all of you, for making the last ten years so special
for us. Whether you came to one show or one hundred, your **passion and
support has been humbling and life changing. We play our farewell shows
in March 2015, these will be the last shows we will play as a band.
Unfortunately, these shows will only be in the UK. There are no plans for
anything **more for The Blackout, so we hope you would like to come and
party with us for the final time.
Once again, thank you for helping us live out our dreams.
Big friends with Vulture Hound, we have met The Blackout guys many times and have loved them more every time, especially when these enigmatic guys were performing on stage, they will be massively missed by many, and we encourage anyone to check out this farewell show. Miss it and regret it.
