Revenge of the Psychotronic Man announce split after 14 years

Manchester punks Revenge of the Psychotronic Man have just announced they will be breaking up after fourteen years of banging, slamming, punk. The guys have released the following statement:

After pushing 14 years and well over 500 gigs, 4 albums and numerous splits/EPs/7”s Revenge of the Psychotronic Man have come to a big decision. We’ve had an unbelievable run but we collectively have realised that our time as a band is coming to an end.

Trying to do this alongside full-time work and numerous other commitments has been exhausting. We leave this knowing we have given absolutely everything we could. Doing around 50 gigs a year and ensuring we record and release as often as possible has taken its toll. We have got to a point where we have realised that this is affecting relationships with friends/family/partners and, significantly at times, mental health. There have been occasions where we were practising 2/3 times a week, then gigging all weekend and trying to squeeze work/TNSrecords/Manchester Punk Festival/MBBP in alongside it all. We guess we can’t do all of that forever. We would never want something we have prioritised and loved so, so much to become a chore. But we could never do this half-heartedly either – this is worth way more than that.

We have so many awesome gigs booked (including a handful that we haven’t announced yet) and we have absolutely no intention of letting anyone down. We also want to go out on a good run as it’s probably what we will remember all this by the most. So, we will be doing all the gigs we have booked (and maybe a couple more). They will be our tightest and most passionate performances ever, they simply must be. We will then wrap it all up with a final Manchester gig in November/December. Everything we can announce atm is listed below.

We have genuinely not thought about what comes after that. But this isn’t a hiatus. Maybe we’ll want to come back to it in the future, maybe not, we will see where our lives take us individually. At the moment none of us really want to think about that, but if it happens it certainly won’t be any time soon. It quite possibly will be never.

We will be releasing one last record too. It will have selected tracks from our last three albums plus some rarities and unreleased stuff. More news to follow on that soon.

There are so many people to thank that we’re not going to attempt it right now. We have been truly humbled by our experience and it’s safe to say that the DIY music scene is in a much healthier position than it was 14 years ago. What a community we have, it’s so heart-warming. It’s impossible to overstate how honoured we are to have played a small part in that. We can’t list everyone we want to thank here, that would be ridiculous, but we’d like to acknowledge the contribution of past members, Dave Allcock, Liam McDevitt and Tom Fildes and also our number one roadie, Malibu Phill McKie. And we do want to take this chance to publicly thank Tim Bevington. We couldn’t exist as a band without him and what he has selflessly done for our band (and for independent music in general) also can’t be overstated. We told Bev what we’d decided yesterday and he called me to chat about it. He said, “if someone had told you what you would achieve at the start, you wouldn’t have believed it”.

And that rings so true. We are so lucky to have had all these incredible experiences. If you’d told us that three idiots would sell well over 5000 records/CDs, play to capacity crowds with likes of Bad Religion and three years in a row at MPF, play all over Europe, get mainstream radio play and do an actual MAIDA VALE session, we would have just laughed out loud. But we started this band to have fun, to gig as much as we could and to get our favourite new bands playing in our own town and to help build communities of like-minded people, where people supported small DIY gigs. We can genuinely say we’ve tried so hard to do all those things and that our happiest moments are the small, packed gigs where the crowd gets ridiculously silly. Seeing the crowd responding to our music means everything. We’ve made so many friends and seen thousands of incredible bands. Writing this is bringing tears to my eyes, but we all know it is time. I think we leave the DIY scene in an incredibly healthy place, with so many amazing bands coming through right now. And obviously we will all continue to be involved with that individually in a variety of ways.

It would mean to absolute world to see you all at some of the remaining gigs. Thank you so, so much from the bottom of our hearts. This has been a life-changing, mind-blowing and wonderful experience. Much, much love.

Andy, Matt and Big Hands

The Lawrence Arms announce best-of album and tour

“We Are the Champions of the World”, a 29 song retrospective collecting the band’s most popular works, is due out March 30th on Fat Wreck Chords.

The band took a unique approach to crafting the compilation record. Rather than just a smattering of commercially successful singles, they attempted to capture the band’s evolution throughout their career.  “I think you have to have hits to make a greatest hits,” says bassist/vocalist Brandon Kelly, “of which, frankly, there are none.” The album will feature material from all of their releases, and include 5 unheard songs recorded during the “Oh, Calcutta” sessions. 

This spring, The Lawrence Arms will set out on tour to support the record starting April 4th in Boston and winding down May 6th in Denver, CO. Check out additional details on the dates below!
