You heard me–done. On May 15th the band will play their final show at Empty Bottle in Chicago. This isn’t too terribly surprising due to the lack of performing in 2008. However, the band denied rumors of a break-up in June 2008 and explained that they wanted time off to take care of other aspects of their lives.
However, Jeremy Bolen announced on the band’s myspace page that Chin Up Chin Up had broken up recently. Bolen: “I think I can speak for all of us when I say that we really had intentions to keep making music together for an infinite amount of time, but just as this band began in a natural way it is naturally coming to an end. Thank you to the hundreds of people who have helped us along the way, we have been truly lucky, and as cliché as it may sound, we could not have done any of this without you. Much love- Jeremy”.
But if you are bummed out about the breakup, do not fret my pet–multiple members are forming a new band named Vacations. Former Chin Up Chin Up members Greg Sharp, Bobby Burg, AND Jeremy Bolen will release the bands first CD entitled I Was Bikini/But Ran Afraid on April 7th through Flameshovel. 🙂
So keep your chin up.. and watch this video that they made.
