Following release of their debut album...

Well, it was fun while it lasted...

Young tykes from Weston- super-Mere, TOWNS offered flickers of resistance against indie's current moribund state.

Shows were stormed, recording studios were ransacked and the band's debut album 'Get By' was released only seven days ago.

But now it's over. In a short statement, Towns confirmed their intentions to part company - it reads thus.

We are sad to inform you all TOWNS have decided to call it a day. We have had a wonderful 3 years but it is time for us to all move on and explore new things. I would like to thank everyone who has ever supported us, believed in us, shared the beers, gave us a floor and showed us a good time. A big thank you to Joe and Adrian at Howling Owl Records for putting out our album. Gareth White, Rory Attwell, Owen Morris, Chris Fraser, Lewis Jamieson and Billy Burrell for there time and energy.Finally a huge thanks to Dom Mitchison who poured his heart into the making of our album. We are eternally indebted to all of you i can't thank you all enough.

No dead flowers, here we go to another candle that i know.

Big Love TOWNS X
