Cog confirm break up
2010-12-27 by Billy | 39 Comments

Progressive rock act Cog have confirmed that they have no plans to work together in the
future.

Drummer Lucius Borich told Australian radio station Triple J: "From what I've been told
don't hold your breath for anything forthcoming unfortunately." He also confirmed that the
December 22 show in Sydney will be "the last time you'll ever see us all together."

Borich has started a new band called Floating Me with Karnivool bassist Jon Stockman.
Floating Me plan to tour and release their debut album in 2011.

That's not a confirmation of a break up. He explicitly said it was not a confirmation and that he didn't know.

Read the last part of the interview, dude. The last part of the interview says 'this is the last time you'll ever see us together.' That's a confirmation, Tom.

I listened to the interview and I could have sworn it was only suggested. That'd it'd probably be, rather than definitely. I mean, I don't give a shit because I don't like Cog that much, but I remember listening to the interview when it actually aired and it was made completely clear that he could confirm nothing and wasn't sure himself.

On the other hand, Cog rhythm section + Karnivool rhythm section = massive sexy win for all concerned.

Now if only Sleep Parade would bring back the keyboards...

It's not so much pedantic, as you can't say a band has confirmed it's broken up when they purposefully refuse to confirm it, regardless of how likely it'll be. That's just bad news reporting.

They hinted at this earlier in the year. They clearly are going to take some time off, but it wouldn't surprise me if they returned together in 3-5 years time.

A pity, but fair call, they realised they'd got the best out of themselves as a band. The New Normal + Just Visiting EP's amazing releases. Sharing Space album wasn't as consistent. Keen to hear their new projects in the future.

This is a sad day for the Aussie scene, but it's been imminent for a while now. From what I've heard, that tour they did a while back of the East coast was supposed to be their final group of shows, so we were lucky they gave us a few more after that. That said, I think it's a real shame to go out on such a quiet note, having created such excellent music over the decade that they've been together.

Tom, they're done. Spoke to Flynn at their last gig in Melbourne- two weeks ago. There's no chance at all of them continuing. To quote Flynn, 'we're done'.

Never really listened to these guys. Would I like them if I like Dead Letter Circus, Sleep Parade, Karnivool, and the Butterfly Effect?

probably because from what i can tell there is only one amorphous aussie prog band thats comprised of 10 musicians that changes its name for a release based on who is singing on given album.

ha ha. That theory has some merit I think. The bands I listed all kick huge amounts of ass though. Dead Letter Circus and Karnivool to a somewhat higher degree than the other two. Will probably check Cog out too. Was on a huge aussie prog kick about a year ago.

I really hope Flynn goes on to do something else, he uses effects very well and I love his voice.
It was highly tipped that the breakup was coming, glad I got to see them a stack of times before they called it quits.
