The band has had an absolutely massive 12 months off the back of their ARIA Award-winning fourth album WACO, and it seems as if they’re ready to take a break.
Speaking to South Western Times about Groovin The Moo, guitarist James Tidswell says, “[The final Groovin The Moo show] will be so emotional for us because it will be our last time playing indefinitely.
“There is nothing booked after that, no album, we haven’t demoed any songs, we aren’t touring so that’s it — I 100 per cent guarantee it will be at least a year before we do anything else.
“It’s been an amazing six years and it’s the end of this whole sort of ride really,” he adds. “We will always be a band and always play, but this is the end of going this hard.”
Fans have obviously erupted online about this news, scared that it may spell the end for the band. The group have since taken to Facebook to say, “Unfortunately we’re not breaking up.”
Violent Soho’s management have also reportedly told triple j that Tidswell was misquoted in some way and that “it’s not true” that the band are breaking up.
Triple j‘s Max Quinn has further backed this by tweeting, “Spoke to mgmt, they were misquoted, not going on indefinite hiatus, chill.”
Groovin The Moo will kick off late next month, and will wrap up in Bunbury in mid-May.
