Promising punk sorts Sparks Lights And Flames have gone the way of Million Dead and announced their break up.
The following is taken directly from I Spy PR's mail out.
_"Ok, well... where to begin? These things are never easy. Possibly harder than ending a relationship. How do you tell countless people it's over when telling one is almost impossible?
"I think, from the first few lines you all know what is coming. But the long and the short of it is that* Sparks Lights and Flames *no longer exists as a musical entity. It still, however, floats freely in our hearts, and nestles among our fondest memories. Excuse the pretention but the truth is the most important element of our lives has irrevocably changed and then ceased to exist. Apart from the all too short audio document some of you own...
"Firstly thank you to all of you for your support and love over the last 15 months, the most incredible 15 months of our lives. Thank you to Kev BSM who not only has become a friend but also a constant inspiration. We can't think of a more decent, hardworking genuine person in the 'industry'. Thank you to all the bands we havve toured with or played one-offs with. Thank you to all the people who let us sleep in their houses and drink their coffee. Writing this is actually one of the hardest parts of the whole thing - so final, like laying a loved one to rest.
"Please don't feel any ill will towards us, it just simply wasn't working anymore, and we couldn't lie to you. We also further more couldn't lie to ourselves.
"In the immortal words of Mr Thomas Gale: 'If you love us we love you, if you hate us we love you'.
"With the most profound sincerity, thank you again.
Marc, Dave, Tom and Tim (Sparks Lights and Flames)"_
