Wet Nuns have decided to call it a day, and will part company after their upcoming tour.
Wet Nuns are dead. Defunct. No more.
Or - at least - they will be. The band's debut album will be released on October 7th, and following this the duo will play a full nationwide tour.
Re-tooled as the 'Death Tour' these will comprise the final shows of Wet Nuns' lifespan. Here's a statement from the band:
We are splitting up, here's why:
Wet Nuns was a joke we started in the summer of 2009. We never thought we'd do much more than play a couple of the pubs in and around Sheffield.
There's personal things going on in and out of the band that has rendered it an increasingly stressful and negative entity to be a part of.
In short, our four year long joke isn't very funny anymore. We're sick of the sight of each other and the band is imminently to cease to exist.
The upcoming UK jaunt, now retitled the 'Death Tour' will be the last time Wet Nuns ever play live.
We realise that this now renders all our dick drawings worthless, but hey, at least we'll never make a shit album!
