Delorentos decide NOT to split

Some good news to start the day. Delorentos have announced via their Myspace blog that Ronan has rejoined the group and the band will not now split! Below is the blog outlining the decision.

I’m writing to let you know that about a week ago I asked the other delorentos if they’d consider allowing me rejoin the group. After several good chats we’ve decided to continue on, together.

As mentioned in our blog in December, 2008 was a difficult year for all sorts of reasons.

I realise now that I didn’t cope very well with these. I guess you could say I discovered the true meaning of the phrase ‘difficult second album’.

As bizarre and exciting as the period following the release of “In Love with Detail” was, I found the subsequent hibernation to write the next record, as
well as some personal traumas, hard to deal with, to the extent that I felt I could no longer continue.

Had the band not felt compelled to record the songs we had been working on, I would not have had an opportunity to rethink my decision.
It’s a cliche, but I took those closest to me for granted. In studio I was reminded of the reasons I first got so excited about this group and it also afforded us the time to talk and see delorentos and ourselves from a different perspective.

I’d like to apologise to all our friends. The dramatic press release a couple of months back, was in hindsight premature, but we wanted to be open and honest about what was going on.

I’m grateful to Níal, Kieran and Ross for their friendship and understanding and I’m very excited at the prospect of playing our new songs for you,

Thank you,

  • Well that’s a relief!

  • While i wouldn’t be a huge fan, (I still think the best thing they’ve done is let Jape remix ‘Stop’), it’s good to see them sticking with it, Christ knows we need more good news. They do what they do better than most of their ilk & could go beyond these shores with the right support.

    Actually, why is it the Irish branches of major labels (Universal, Island etc.) have never known how to export local acts on their hands that prove successful here?

    Ah cool.

    Delorentos are Ace.
