Dirty on Purpose to play farewell show on New Year’s Eve

Last-ever show will see them open for A Place To Bury Strangers

Dirty on Purpose have announced they will perform their final show as a band on New Year’s Eve in New York.

The band will play one last time, opening for A Place To Bury Strangers at Mercury Lounge, after deciding they did not want to record a new album.

“After six years of spending an unhealthy and unusual amount of time together Dirty on Purpose is going the way of the dodo,” the band said in a statement. “We got back from tour about a month ago and sat down to talk about recording another record, and realized we didn’t really want to record another record. Not now anyway. So we’re going our separate ways. Our best friends and practice space sharers of many years, A Place To Bury Strangers, offered us the opening slot on their New Year’s Eve gig at Mercury Lounge. We thought it was an appropriate way to wind things down and say goodbye to our friends and fans.”

The band will pursue other avenues in music, and each member is currently working on other projects.

Tickets for the show are currently on sale.
