The hardcore band reformed at the start of 2012 after a 14 year hiatus
Refused have announced plans for their last ever live show.
The hardcore band reformed earlier this year for a number of reunion gigs. However, the Swedish group have now revealed that they will be playing their last ever gig on December 15 at the Exel Arena in Umea, Sweden.
In January of this year, Refused released a statement which said they would be playing the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in California.
They detailed how the reunion came about, writing: “All four of us were suddenly making new music in assorted constellations. As all this was brewing, Coachella got in touch. There were a couple of phone-calls, lots of skepticism, some hesitant enthusiasm before one of us basically said: ‘This is ridiculous. There are friends of ours who would murder close relatives just to go see bands there. Let’s just do it, one last time’.”
As well as Coachella, Refused played Download and shows at London’s HMV Forum and Manchester’s Academy and also the Primavera Sound festival in Spain.
The influential band first parted ways in 1998, months after they released their much praised studio album ‘The Shape Of Punk To Come’.
