Melbourne Hardcore Punk group, The Broderick have announced via their Facebook page that they will no longer be playing together as a band.
"About two weeks ago we returned from our first tour of South East Asia and Japan, the experiences and memories we will keep from those few shows will last us a lifetime. We were so honoured to be able to meet such amazingly hospitable people and to see some beautiful parts of this world just from being five friends that wanted to play aggressive music together.
Unfortunately, those will be the last shows that we will ever play as we have decided that we will no longer be an active band. There are way too many people and bands to thank from the 7+ years we have been a band, but to everyone who has helped us and supported us in any way; we thank you".
Speculation has risen over whether a final string of Australian shows will be announced but at this moment it is unlikely.
Such a shame to see such a young, talented band call it quits. Free To Rot, Free Of Sin is an amazing record that
didn't get as much recognition as it should've. They're also one of the best live acts I've seen in recent memory, so if by
any chance, they do undergo a final string of shows, make an effort to go see them - they're amazing.
