The Marine Electric have decided to call it quits after 7 years. The band has released the following statement:
“After seven years of touring, recording, partying, and prolonging the dream of endless youth, the Marine Electric are calling it quits and moving on. Playing in this band has been nothing short of a dream manifested into reality via the hard work and dedication of four true friends. To see the places we have seen and meet the absolutely inspiring people we have met has been an opportunity and a privilege that we will remain thankful for forever. These were the wildest times of our lives and through all the ups and downs we can safely say we regret nothing (at least nothing we will mention). The memories and stories will be kicked around at bars and in backyards long into our declining years and our music will always stand as a living relic of this period. Big/huge/gigantic thank you to everyone who put us on shows, put us up in their homes, and put up with us in general. I guess all that’s left to say is that although this project is over, the members of M.E. will remain active in music and will always remain best friends. Come to our final shows Friday the 27th at Suburbia in Brooklyn and Saturday the 28th at The Golden Tee House in Philly so we can get over this shit and move on with our goddamn lives.
You can check out the dates for their final shows here.
The band last released a split January 2nd.
