Vant have announced that they are to split up at sthe end of next month after their upcoming tour, which concludes on November 18th in Edinburgh.
This is what the band have posted to their fans.
“Some of you were right to question the title of our upcoming tour ‘The Last Days Of Punk’,” the band’s statement reads. “We can now officially reveal that we are going on an indefinite hiatus.
“We wanted to end this part of our journey where we began, in tiny venues, in often over-looked towns. We came from those places (Seaham, Poulton-le-Fylde, Sandy Lane, Bensham) and when a band played anywhere near us, whoever they may have been, we were grateful and elated. They were the bands that made us want to make music in the first place. They showed us it was possible.
“It seems apt for us to return the favour one last time before we depart to explore other musical worlds for a while.”
The band will release a brand new mini-album, ‘Talk Like Thunder’, in the coming weeks. Check out the full statement from the band via Facebook.
