Today through Facebook, UK emo act, Basement, has just announced that they are going on “indefinite hiatus”, stating that their newest album, “Colourmekindness”, will be the last thing done as a band for a very long time. The album has not yet been released, however the band will not be around as a unit to see its success. Here’s what the band had to say about their decision,
Now Colourmeinkindness is finished, we head out to play a string of shows across America. Due to a number of personal commitments, this record and these shows will be the last thing we do as a band for a very long time. Basement has never been about achieving anything; it was simply an enjoyable outlet for creativity and emotion. That being said, we are incredibly grateful for the support we have received over the last two years. We have managed to do some amazing things and see some incredible places and the people we have met along the way will be our friends forever. We seriously cannot express sufficiently how much this means to us. We all have things going on outside of the band that require a lot of time and attention and now more than ever these things have to come first.
There will be a last show and information will be released shortly.
Thank you for everything,
See you soon.
Alex, Andrew, Duncan, James and Ronan.
“Colourmekindess” is the band’s second full-length album, and is set to be released this fall through Run For Cover Records.
