SHED SEVEN have announced they will split at the end of their current UK tour.
In an statement on the band’s website today (October 25), frontman Rick Witter explained that “all of the band members fully agree that the time is right to move on”.
Witter was also keen to point out the pressures the band have been under. “We feel that certain aspects of the music industry have put a strain on the recording side of things in recent years,” he said. “The one thing that has remained consistent throughout has been the bands love of performing live and their ability to please the fans by giving 100% every time.”
The band plan to make their last tour a ‘retrospective’ one, in which they will make a special effort to play “what people want to hear”.
Shed Seven formed in 1991, signing to Polydor in ’94. The band had various top 30 hits, including ‘Speakeasy’, ‘Getting Better’ and ‘Disco Down’.
