Unfortunately, not all bands end up with multi-million-dollar record deals playing headline shows to thousands of people all over the world. Not all bands can exist for decades still producing music. Some bands go their separate ways after releasing an album or two. The point is, no band is around forever.
But does that mean we should just forget them? Fuck no. No matter what the size of the band from playing sold out rooms to empty basements every band has fans. No matter how big the band is, to their fans following their music has given them meaning, purpose, community and even a family.
In the R.I.P feature we look at a band who, for one reason or another, are no longer together and honour them for the music they made. Just because a band breaks up doesn’t mean they disappear. So, strap yourselves in forget all the bullshit and how the band may have ended and let’s give these motherfuckers one last hurrah and remember them for the only thing that matters, their music.
