Yorkshire-based four-piece This Et Al have split.
Says frontman Wu via e-mail: "Hope you appreciate my witty headline". Comedy gold, mate. And the rest...
It is with great regret we announce the end of This Et Al.
We've had a great time as TEA but cracks have been forming over the past few years, some relationships within the band had broken down and we've now decided to move on with other things. Further releases were planned but TEA has sadly become unworkable.
We extend our thanks and gratitude (and apologies) to all the lovely people we've worked with or made slaves of over the years, our true friends, our families and of course to all the folks who've made the effort to see us play and buy our records. Thank you.
There are no immediate plans for new projects but there will be in time, so it isn't all bad news. Watch this space.
We had high hopes for our latest EP to lead to an album, but it's sadly the only new material we will be releasing. Only 500 were made so head over to On The Bone to pick one up.
As a fond TEA farewell, we will be releasing the originally planned retrospective B-Sides & Rarities collection (details TBA), including B-sides (obviously) and other unreleased material (some you may have, some you may not). Keep your eye on ThisEtAl.com or MySpace for updates.
Lots and lots of love.
Over and out…
TEA Team x
