After 30 years together,
From the StatementWe felt we’d got to a point where what we did as a band – and specifically the writing, recording, touring cycle – wasn’t doing justice to what Chumbawamba set out to do in the first place. We were always as much about ideas as music, and that meant doing more than writing, recording and touring songs. It meant trying to be relevant and active and up-to-date, while trying to avoid the dreaded rut of routine or repetition. being up-to-date meant giving plenty of time and energy to the band, constantly, for those thirty years; a constancy we plainly couldn’t keep up with in the end. 34 Comments -

is going on an
Message From the BandThese past three years have been the best years of our lives. We're very fortunate to have had as much support from all of you as we have. We've been living and breathing ATS non-stop. We've traveled the entire country, recorded three albums, and have had the best times of lives. We would have never been able to do it without all of you. We will never forget all of this, however we have reached a point in our career where we have mutually decided that the best thing for us as individuals is to temporarily part ways. There are no personal issues between us. We are all still best friends and this indefinite... 45 Comments -
In a recent interview with
Damon Albarn spoke about how the forthcoming Hyde Park concert should be
's last and that the revival of
is highly unlikely.
From The Interview"I find it very easy to record with Graham (Coxon)," Albarn said. "He's a daily musician. With the other two, it's harder for them to reconnect … It's fine when we play live: it's really magical still. But actually recording new stuff, and swapping musical influences … it's quite difficult." 46 Comments -
have decided to
call it quits
. A statement from the band can be read below.
Band StatementWe’ll make this brief, because it hurts too much.
During the first year of Air France, somewhere in the middle of the last decade, everything seemed to come so easily. At least it feels like that right now. We’d meet on friday nights to drink wine, listen to music and picture ourselves far off, somewhere on the outskirts on the big map Henrik had on his wall. The songs we made during those nights weren’t really supposed to ever leave the hard drive, but somehow they did, and somehow they took us to almost all the places on that big map we had dreamt about. We got to play records at the... 18 Comments -
This Is A Standoff
StatementAs you may have noticed, things have been quiet with us since the fall, and apologies are due, as we have been holding onto this bit of news for a few months now. To make it short and sweet, This Is A Standoff is done. Touring has become harder and harder, and everyone's lives have been heading in different directions for quite some time now. We set out to be a part-time band, but somehow we ended up playing 322 shows in over 25 countries across 4 continents. Along the way, we were lucky enough make amazing friends in all corners of the world and play along side some of our favourite bands. It's been an amazing and surreal five years,... 11 Comments -

From the StatementAs of last week we have decided that Take Cover will be parting ways. The time has come where some of us feel ready to move on to the next chapter of our lives and we had to be honest with ourselves and each other and accept it. Although we are disbanding as Take Cover, I want to assure everyone that this is not the end of music for any of us by any means. It’s in our blood and its not going anywhere. 59 Comments -
Seminal 90's pop-punk/indie rock label,
is shutting its doors. In a
recent blog post
, Ted Leo made the informal announcement.
From the BlogI’ve been getting a lot of Twitter questions about why a bunch of my records have disappeared from all the digital services (Sportify, iDudes, Mandora, etc.). It’s because our beloved Lookout Records, which ceased releasing new material in 2006, but carried on keeping the catalog in print until this past December, has, sadly, shuttered it’s windows for good.
A better eulogy should be forthcoming, but just to answer these questions, this means that these records have reverted to my complete ownership, which is kind of cool in... 39 Comments -
