The Amazing Snakeheads have announced their split.

The Glasgow band recently pulled out of the NME Awards Tour 2015 with Austin, Texas, due to a last-minute change in their line-up, with drummer Scott Duff leaving the group. They have now revealed that they are no longer together, with frontman Dale Barclay announcing the news on Twitter, writing:

“The Amazing Snakeheads are over. Never, ever to return. To anyone who came to get down, I thank you with all my heart. Dale Barclay.”


The band were due to play on the awards tour with Slaves, Fat White Family and Palma Violets, but were replaced by The Wytches, releasing a statement which read: “Due to there being no suitable replacement at this short notice The Amazing Snakeheads have to pull out of the NME Awards tour. We apologise for any and all inconvenience caused.”

The band also had a change of personnel in June 2014, leaving frontman Dale Barclay the sole founding member. Duff was the replacement for original drummer Jordan Hutchinson.

The Amazing Snakeheads released one album, 2014’s ‘Amphetamine Ballads’, which came out on the Domino label.
