Chumbawamba (Finally) Break Up
Is it mean to be shocked, not by a group’s disbanding announcement, but by the fact that they are actually still together? It’s sort of like when you hear that an elderly celebrity has died and you thought that they had passed years ago. It doesn’t necessarily feel good but everyone has done it (right?).
Well, this is how I felt when I learned tha Chumbawamba had decided to part ways today. If you aren’t exactly sure who I am talking about, you might remember a highly popular 90s song called “Tubthumping” (“I get knocked down, but I get up again” – ring a bell?).
Apparently, they’ve remained together for an amazing 30 years (yes, three whole decades!) but have announced their plans to dissolve the group on their official website.
The actual statement was rather fitting and amusing and said: "with neither a whimper, a bang or a reunion. Thirty years of ideas and melodies, endless meetings and European tours, press releases, singalong choruses and Dada sound poetry, finally at an end. We do, of course, reserve the right to re-emerge as Chumbawamba doing something else entirely: frankly, that's not very likely."
If you’ve always wanted to see them live, you better catch them before curtain call following their fall and early winter performances this year.
