Trophy Wife have made their debut album available online - and then promptly split up.
These things take time. Trophy Wife delivered their debut single back in the ebbing days of 2010, with the math rock melancholia of 'Microlite' enrapturing anyone who came in its path.
Since then, fans have waited for a debut album. And waited. And waited. Missing, presumed 'gone', Trophy Wife faded into inaction.
Now the band have finally delivered said debut LP - on the same day that they split up.
Here's a statement:
"We know this has taken a long time but our debut album is now finished and ready. After exploring a few different avenues, we have decided that rather than wait any longer we'd like to share it with you and we want you to have it for as much as you'd like to pay. You can download it as of now over on our Bandcamp page:http://bit.ly/YTjK8M
We'd also like you to know that we're going to be turning our attention to making some new music after this which means we're going to be putting Trophy Wife to rest.
We've lived and breathed this band for the last three years and it feels like the right time for us to move on after the release of an album we truly love and are all incredibly proud of.
We've also planned a handful of shows to celebrate the release. All the details can be found below. We've loved this band so much and would like to say a huge thank you to everyone that has in anyway connected with our songs, videos, live shows and artwork and helped make this happen for us.
There will be more music and news to follow soon. For now we hope you enjoy our album.
