Sadly, Sheffield based indie poppers Milburn have decided to split, according to a statement on their official site.
The band had the following to say:
“It may not come as a great surprise to many of you but unfortunately after much consideration we’ve decided that Milburn has run it’s course.
There’s been no malice or falling out between us and we still remain friends and supporters of each other as we move on and explore new musical horizons.
Not everyone in the music media understood us but you the fans did and over the last 2-3 years we’ve shared some amazing experiences that we’ll never forget and we feel very privileged to have done so.
We want to sincerely thank everyone of you that supported us along the way. It’s been overwhelming.
For this reason we’d like to play one last gig. There’s also a few songs left over from the second album that we’re going to make available. The songs are “The District Line” and “Stay At Home”. Details will be up as soon as possible.
The gig will take place on 24th May at Sheffield Academy.”
So that’s that. A farewell gig on May 24th, then it’s all over – tickets are available now.
