After 8 years together English punk act, The Apostates, have announced that they will be breaking up, but not before they share some old (and new) music with you. Read their full statement and stream their Last Demos below.
The band’s last album Wide-Eyed & Determined was released in 2012.
The Apostates’ Farewell Statement:
“Hello, beloved fans of our little band. Here we are, crawling out of the wilderness after months of silence and introspection with some breaking news for you. News that will probably come as no great surprise to anyone who follows us; we have decided to call time on The Apostates.
After eight years together, we feel like we’ve arrived at a point where it’s time to move on and focus on other pursuits in and life and in music.
As some sort of parting gift, we have uploaded our old (ska days!) material to our bandcamp. There’s also some unreleased demos from way back when and some of the last few demo recordings of songs that would probably have ended up on album number two.
Check them out here.
We want to thank everyone who ever came to see us live. Everyone who bought a record. Everyone who allowed us to play at their venue, festival, radio show, front room, squat and airfield base. Everyone who let us crash on their floor and/or cooked us delicious vegan food. Every band we’ve had the pleasure of sharing a stage with and to all of the life-long friends that we have made. We love you all from the bottom of our hearts.
Adam, Mike and Steve
