Marine Electric to disband

Posted Sept. 27, 2013, 7:50 a.m.

Brooklyn's Marine Electric are calling it a day with two final shows this weekend in Brooklyn and Philadelphia.

Bassist Eric Fairchild is also playing bass with Crime In Stereo and guitarist Scott Fitzpatrick and drummer Fred Trumpy play in Living Room .

Here is the band's statement.

After seven years of touring, recording, partying, and prolonging the dream of endless youth, the Marine Electric are calling it quits and moving on. Playing in this band has been nothing short of a dream manifested into reality via the hard work and dedication of four true friends. To see the places we have seen and meet the absolutely inspiring people we have met has been an opportunity and a privilege that we will remain thankful for forever. These were the wildest times of our lives and through all the ups and downs we can safely say we regret nothing (at least nothing we will mention). The memories and stories will be kicked around at bars and in backyards long into our declining years and our music will always stand as a living relic of this period. Big/huge/gigantic thank you to everyone who put us on shows, put us up in their homes, and put up with us in general.

Their catalog is available on bandcamp.

FINAL SHOWSSEP 27 - Brooklyn, NY @ Suburbia with Jeff Rosenstock, Tiny Empires
SEP 28 - Philadelphia, PA @ Golden Tee House with Tiny Empires, Secret Plot to Destroy the Entire Universe, Address

Hiatus for War from a Harlots Mouth

Hiatus for War from a Harlots Mouth

Christoph Neumann Photography

Post-hardcore band War from a Harlots Mouth have announced an upcoming "indefinite hiatus" after 8 years and four full-lengths as a band. The group most recently released Voyeur last November.

While thanking many in their official statement, it also offers this hint as to their break-up:

The scene we're a part of used to be an inspiring subculture but has turned into an abortion of mainstream accessibility, with choreographed stage moves and cute little matching outfits. It's frustrating to witness and really makes it less fun to go out and play with new bands sometimes. However, this is not a breakup, it's a hiatus. Sooner or later we might find the urge to come back and slay!

The band has a few live dates remaining (after the jump).
