Angular, indie punk band The Rakes have announced they have split. Cancelling there forth-coming tour, the band wrote on their website

”The Rakes always been adamant and proud of the fact that we give 100% to every gig we’ve ever played.”

“If we can’t give it everything then we won’t do it. That was the rule we set ourselves from day one. After much deliberation we have come to the shared conclusion that we can’t give it 100% any more and regret to announce that the Rakes are calling it a day”

Fans will undoubtedly be a bit annoyed at the¬†lacklustre¬†explanation, which really just amounts to a lengthy ”CBA”. Flamboyant as ever Alan decides to end the ”eulogy” with ”that was one hell of a party! But now, we really must get some sleep.”

I’m pretty sure a nap would have done, but best of luck to them, they will be missed. R.I.P
