THE CRIMEA

And so The Crimea will be immortal soon. Very soon, in fact. I’ll let the band explain:
.

The CRIMEA ends on July 30th, 2013.

Following the release of our final and greatest album “Square Moon” on July 30th and our London concert on the same date the band will cease to exist.
The band can no longer continue as singer Davey Macmanus is going to Diepsloot, South Africa indefinitely to start a childrens home.

.
So. That’s my tickets booked then. The news was just broken on Davey’s Facebook page, but, you know, if you didn’t see it coming already… It’s not like we haven’t been here before though. Diepsloot or not, you’re crazy if you think Davey’s putting his guitar down forever.

Expect plenty of updates over the next month on gigs, releases, and how to get involved with Davey’s travels. Frankly, it’s a much better idea than all this music lark anyway, eh? For now though, hit more for the full press release, and leave your comments on whatever the hell you like – if anyone’s coming on the 30th though I’d suggest buying tickets quick like, might just sell out pretty quickly now.

“So began
The chronicles of man
This weak distorted thing
Evil and all that jazz
Came out of Africa”

“I could listen to this music forever and ever” John Peel.

Following the release of our final and greatest album “Square Moon” on July 30th and our London concert on the same date the band will cease to exist.

The band can no longer continue as singer Davey Macmanus is going to Diepsloot, South Africa indefinitely to start a childrens home.

It is with great sadness that we leave this dreamworld.

From Top of the Pops to Tiananmen Square. From the New York Times to the Singapore Times, From Wembley to Big Al’s in El Paso. From tape cassettes to MP3s: We have been there, we have conquered, we have laughed and cried.

Thank you to all who came, saw, believed, listened, understood, kissed, sang along, got tattooed, we have had wonderful times with you and because of you. We only survived, to die another day: because of you.

When we were making this music it was designed to transcend genres and fashion. It was designed to last forever.

Our music will always champion the dispossessed and the strangers in a crowd. We tried to make sadness cool and redemption possible. We tried to bring hope.

Petals open when reached by sunlight.
