It's with great sadness that we bring to you the news (OK, some of you may have read it already on the Music Board, but we're just springing back into action, here) that Youthmovies - formerly Youthmovie Soundtrack Strategies some time previously - are to cease trading. Bad news.
The good news is that the band will play a few more farewell shows, though they are yet to be confirmed, locations wise. The news was 'leaked' on our very own Music Board, with Andrew and Al from the band explaining the situation after news got out. Click here and here to read a couple of the explanation posts. Or simply read below for the gist...
It is true. We are no more.
We had intended to neatly announce this in conjunction with a final set of dates but... Anyhow, no big deal.
There's no gossip or anything to reveal, we're all still friends, we just won't be making another record together. Some of us wanted to do other things and it felt like the right time to draw a line under the last seven years and move on.
We're hoping to play four or five final gigs in March or April (London, Leeds, Glasgow, Oxford, maybe a couple of other places), so news on them in the new year. We'll also do our best to learn all the old songs so please do come out and let's give this shit a proper send off yeah?
Thanks to everyone for everything.
As a band we've supported (putting out Good Nature via DiS Records; various gigs), and a band supported by a great many of our readers and forum members, as well as being generally progressively brilliant, we wish all members of Youthmovies good luck in new pursuits, of which there are a varied many, in the new decade.
