The Crimea are no more.
Well, almost. The indie tykes have already confirmed plans to part company, with lead singer Davey MacManus planning to open an orphanage. Before then, though, the band are plotting their final gesture.
New album (their third - and final) 'Square Moon' finds the band going out on a high. Eager to burn out, rather than fade away, it contains a mammoth 22 tracks spread across two discs.
Containing far too much music to simply summarise, 'Square Moon' emphasises that the six year wait for new material has not been in vain.
Rather than twiddling their thumbs, the band have carefully stockpiled each song, waiting for the right moment to bring their ideas together.
An enthralling return, you can listen to it first on Clash.
The Crimea will play their final show at the Jazz Cafe in Camden on July 30th.
