It's in Scotland...
THE BETA BAND have announced details of one of their final shows.
The group, who released their album ’Heroes To Zeros’ this year, have decided to call it a day.
However, a gig has been confirmed at the Glasgow Carling Academy on November 12. Tickets are priced £15.
NME.COM understands more shows will be announced shortly as part of a ‘farewell’ tour.
A statement about the split reads: “All good things must come to an end. And so it is that after eight years of creating consistently innovative music, releasing three critically acclaimed albums and staging some legendary live shows, The Beta Band have decided to call it a day.
“Always regarded as something of an enigma by the media but widely recognised to be one of the UK’s most influential bands, this year’s ’Heroes To Zeros’ proved not only their most successful but most cohesive and engaging album to date.
“Sadly, eight years of hard work and critical acclaim but little return in terms of commercial success inevitably takes its toll and a group decision was made to finally lay the band to rest.”
Bandmember Richard Greentree said: “The Beta Band
apple has over ripened and become riddled with maggots, it must fall from the tree and let its seeds return to ground. Sincere thanks to everyone who has helped us along the way, see you in the spring”.
A DVD of the band’s videos and films is also in the works.
