die schottischen Indie Rocker von ARAB STRAP haben sich nach mehr als 10 Jahren aufgelöst. Hier das Statement:
"Yes, its the end for Arab Strap. After ten years, six studio albums, three live albums and all manner of everything else, weve decided the story should come to a close. Theres no animosity, no drama, we simply feel weve run our course and The Last Romance seems to us the most obvious and logical final act of the Arab Strap studio adventure. Everybody likes a happy ending! We will, of course, be celebrating.
Our anniversary compilation, Ten Years Of Tears will be released this October/November and we are planning what will be our Farewell Tour (which sounds kind of cool) around the release in the UK and Europe (well post the dates over the weekend). We hope youll be able to join us, but if you cant make it then let us take this opportunity to thank you for listening. It is midnight on the 8th of September 2006 and I have just opened a beer. Cheers."
