Before Machines play their last ever show at the Limelight 2 on October 2. The dancey post-hardcore quartet had this statement on the split:
"A few weeks ago the two Dans announced their intentions to leave the band, confirming what we had all been feeling in our hearts for some time - that Before Machines are over.
The release of the "Tundra" album earlier this year was a real high-point for us, but it only served to paper over some of the cracks that had been appearing. Before Machines have been performing for the best part of five years. In that time we've all changed as people; priorities have changed for everyone and some of us feel the need to move away from music. Conversely, there are some of us who will carry on making music; but it wouldn't be right to call it Before Machines.
We'd like to thank everyone who ever put a show on for us, gave us a place to sleep, came to one of our shows, bought a record, or even just listened along the way. As a thank-you, we'll be making our "Tundra" album free to download from Bandcamp with immediate effect. We're still very proud of this record, and we hope you'll enjoy it.
We thoroughly encourage everyone to download said free album and get down to the show and see off this excellent band in style.
Support comes from Elspeth & experimental alternative indie band AudioCavalry.
Doors open at 9pm and entry costs £4.
