Aereogramme is no more

Some very, very sad news:
Aereogramme have decided to split up. They released a great new album (My Heart Has A Wish That You Would Not Go) earlier this year, but the continuous lack of commercial success finally took it’s toll. Aereogramme were one of those bands whose admiration for The God Machine was clearly audible in their music, but they had their own sound.

This is an excerpt from the farewell message posted on their MySpace:
“It is with heavy hearts that we tell you all that Aereogramme have decided to split up. Reasons are multiple and complex. It is however fair to say that the never ending financial struggle coupled with an almost superhuman ability to dodge the zeitgeist have taken their toll, ensuring that we just don't have any fight left in us.
We are immensely proud of the four albums that we made over the past seven years. We hope that they continue to grow in your hearts.
We plan to honor and celebrate the beautiful friendships we have made along the way with some final shows over the summer.
Finally we want to thank you all for listening to our music and coming to our shows over the years. You have given us a glimpse of something truly special.”
