Aussie indie act Saskwatch has decided to call time, announcing plans to break up after a decade together.
The Melbourne-hailing outfit will return home for one last show, a farewell gig to say goodbye to fans this October.
After hundreds of shows and four studio albums, they’ll perform spiritual home The Curtain for the last time, with support from Jim Lawrie and Ella Thompson.
“Hello friends, we’ve decided to hang up the boots as Saskwatch. After 10 years, 4 albums and hundreds of shows together, we feel it’s time to move on,” the band announced.
“Thank you for all your support over the years, to anyone who bought a record, came to a show or just listened to our songs, we feel very grateful for all the opportunities we’ve had.
“It’s not often that you get to be a in a band with your friends for 10 years, to write and record your own music, and to perform and meet people all over the world.”
Saskwatch got their start at Cherry Bar, with a three-year on and off residency leading to the release of debut EP Leave It All Behind in 2012.
Since then they’ve played festivals like Glastonbury and Splendour, released three albums, and finally their final LP Manual Override in 2017.
