Finch Split Up

Despite the band giving away two brand new songs as a parting gift we want them to know that we'll miss them... we'll miss them so.

Finch have broken up, citing musical difference as they tried to write and record their third album.

In a statement posted on their official website the band said:

"Dear Finch fans,

"From the beginning what's always made up the sound of Finch was our ability to take our individual influences, no matter how different, and write music together that stands on it's own. A tense balancing act on a loose wire where we have had success crossing and also lost balance to fall and be broken. Over the past few years we have collectively gone insane trying to achieve the common goal of writing our new record. It's become obvious to all of us that the thing that made Finch such a special band to be in, was also the key ingredient that was tearing us apart. As we get older and broaden our musical pallets, we are all on separate planets drifting further and further out of orbit. Finch is our sun, it has given us everything that we have. This year our sun imploded. Although we travel through darkness. It's comforting to know that we are all still friends. Together floating in the unknown.

"We want to thank you for your undying love and support of our band. Without you, accomplishing our wildest dreams would not have been possible. We apologize deeply for letting you down. Please forgive us and please keep listening to Finch.

"Thank you for Finch."


Awww.

The band have also put up two brand new songs on their Bandcamp page (which will be their final ever recorded output) as well as a live album and some other assorted rarities. But put away those hankies, people: let's remember them as they were...
