The split appears to be amicable, with the announcement stating that came to the decision “simply because we have other musical, artistic, and career-related aspirations to pursue as individuals.”
This year will be the band’s final appearances at The Fest and Punk Rock Bowling. They will be playing their last tours in the second half of 2018 with “a few select dates leading into spring of 2019.”
You can find the full announcement below.
The band’s most recent album, “In the End” was released April 2017 and was one of my top albums of the year. You should definitely try to catch them if they tour near you before the split. I haven’t caught them since a 2007 or so basement show with Off With Their Heads in Minneapolis, and it was easily one of the best shows I’ve been to.
Despite the sting of probably not getting any more material from Nothington, I am definitely looking forward to any projects that will come out of the split.
“Attention everyone! Nothington will be splitting up / taking an indefinite hiatus and playing our final tours in the second half of 2018 with a few select dates leading into spring of 2019. We have lots of tour dates coming up in the next 10 or so months and we want to let you all know to be on the look out so you can get babysitters in advance and come see us when we come through one last time. We will also be playing our final appearances at Punk Rock Bowling and The Fest this year, so don’t miss those if you are going! Final tour details coming soon. We’ve come to this decision simply because we have other musical, artistic, and career-related aspirations to pursue as individuals. Being in this band has been such an important part of our lives – the friends we’ve made along the way, all the sweaty after show hugs, broken down vans, headache mornings – all of it! We can’t thank you enough for your support over the last 11 years and look forward to seeing you at the shows. See you on the dance floor.”
