Supergrass Break Up

As perhaps the Hot Rats’ covers side-project and the beating of Diamond Hoo Ha to death may have suggested, Supergrass were feeling a tad restless and decided to break up “due to the 17 year itch.” They note in a statement that they “still love each other but, cliché notwithstanding, musical differences have led to us moving on and of course we all wish each other well in the future.” They do still love each other: Gaz and Rob Coombes, Mick Quinn, and Danny Goffey are doing four goodbye shows in Europe this June. Billboard reports that according to “British media reports” the band was working on a seventh album around the time of the plug-pulling and that it’s unclear if said album (or any material from it) will be released. We do know, however, that tickets for the final tour go on sale this Friday (4/16). The dates:

06/08 – Glasgow, Scotland @ Barrowland
06/09 – Manchester, UK @ Manchester Academy
06/10 – London, UK @ O2 Academy Brixton
06/11 – Paris, France @ La Cigalle
