80s Matchbox B-Line Disaster have decided to split up due to musical differences.
Ah, the tawdry tale of 80s Matchbox B-Line Disaster...
Cult heroes, the band were cut down in their prime. Reforming last year, a titanic show at the Shacklewell Arms in London proved that the group retained the blood, spit and vigour that made their live performances so vital first time round.
Working on new material, 80s Matchbox B-Line Disaster were expected to release a new album later this year. Sadly, this won't now be happening - instead, the band have split up.
News comes via The Great Escape, who took to Facebook in order to express their sorrow.
"Today TGE HQ received the sad news that The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster has disbanded just days before they were due to bring the house down this Saturday at Coalition. According to a statement from the band, a shared musical common ground couldn’t be found and they apologise for any disappointment caused by cancelling upcoming shows."
Sad, sad times...
