Sad news for fans of the young TN punkers. This comes via BYOP’s MySpace (hat tip to reader John P. for the link):
To all of our fans,
We are sad to bring you the news that our upcoming shows in the UK (dates below) are going to be our last as a band. We thank you for all your love and support these past few years – its been a blast but the time has come for the 4 of us to go our separate ways.
22 August: Reading Festival – Reading, UK
23 August: Leeds Festival – West Yorkshire, UK
25 August: Carling Academy 2 – Liverpool, UK
26 August: Dingwalls – London, UK
It hasn’t always been smooth sailing for the Jemina & Co., with the censorship and Universal’s misguided marketing and whatnot, but still we definitely didn’t see this one coming. So UK kids, you only have a few more chances to have Jemina push you around. Disappointment aside, at least it is safe to think we’ll hear more from ‘em in some form: they all have side projects (Turbo Fruits, Deluxin, etc.) and they’re a bit closer in age to food fights than the AARP (or, ATP) circuit. Looking forward to what’s next.
