After five studio albums and roughly fifteen years together, Textures announced earlier this year that they would be calling it quits after one final tour. That tour ended this past weekend in the band’s native Netherlands, and they put on one hell of a show. Continue reading →
H.I.M. announced back in March that they would be breaking up following the completion of a farewell tour later this year (read the full statement), and today that tour has been announced. Continue reading →
In a post to their Facebook page, Chicago noise merchants Weekend Nachos have announced their breakup. They posted a farewell statement, revealed a final album entitled Apology due on Relapse, and announced a year of touring for the rest of 2016.
“To anybody who gives a shit,
We would like to announce with both sadness and excitement that 2016 will be the final year as a band for Weekend Nachos. It’s been almost 12 years and we have decided to hang it up. This is not for any reason other than the fact that all good things must eventually come to an end, and we are rapidly approaching the end of our time. It’s been an insane and crazy ride for us to see where we were able to take this band. Everything was done completely on our terms and with the same DIY spirit that we had when Andy and I first jerked each other off in our Dekalb apartment in 2004. We will continue to apply that sacred mindset towards our future projects and endeavors…I hope all of you will do the same.
We would like to thank anybody and everybody who ever shared this experience with us. Your support will never be matched and it has been a lot of fun. We will be playing a series of shows over the course of 2016 and as always, if you have a chance to see us, don’t sleep! We never know when we’ll be back. If it ever makes sense to play another show after our demise in the years to come, maybe we will, but don’t count on it.
Our 5th and final album, “Apology“, will become available sometime this year via Relapse Records, Cosmic Note and Deep Six Records. Thanks again, everybody.
Snyder, Jimbo, Gozer, and Byron 1/1/2016
PS-Here is what we have planned for 2016. There may be a few more shows added, but not many. If we are playing near you please come and say goodbye.
