Tempting fate: The King Blues are no more.

When I said "Who's next?" in my blog yesterday, I didn't expect bands to be queueing up or anything. Nonetheless, today The King Blues announced after their new album comes out in July called "Long Live The Struggle" they will split. They say they feel they have taken things as far as they can go, and do not want to cause a scene like some bands do when they split up, ala Oasis.

This is a very different story to that of Viva Brother. Both had just finished recording new albums, and both have announced their splits - but The King Blues were loved by many. This will sure be remembered in the future more so than that of Viva Brother.

You can read the full statement below from the band:

It is with great sadness and very heavy hearts that we must inform you, that as of today The King Blues are no more.

We are all immensely proud of our body of work. We will be releasing the last The King Blues album entitled ‘Long Live The Struggle’ as the final chapter. The album will be released in early July 2012

We simply feel we have taken things as far as they can go and it would be unfair on you if we were to go through the motions like so many other artists do. We all believe strongly in what The King Blues stands for.

Can we take this opportunity to thank you all so much for your support, love and passion down the years.

long live the struggle

in solidarity,

The King Blues
