Giveamanakick split

This just in from Giveamanakick….

Hey guys, sad news, here’s the announcement:

GIVEAMANAKICK ARE SHUTTING DOWN

Today we are sad to announce the end of giveamanakick.

In the 7 odd years of this band’s existence, we have travelled the world playing gigs, played with some of our all-time favourite bands, and have released 3 albums and various singles of our music. We are very proud of what we have achieved with giveamanakick.

giveamanakick was always meant to make a certain kind of impact. We feel we’ve made that impact now, and we are both happy to move on. Along the way, we have made some excellent friends, and we need to thank everybody who has helped in any respect. There are loads of you out there, so, Thank You All So Much!

Thank you to everybody who’s supported us, come to our gigs, talked to us after shows, e-mailed us with kind messages, listened to our music, and for being a fan of giveamanakick. All of you people have made it an absolute pleasure to be in this band for the past 7 years.

That’s it guys n’ gals. We’ve have one last tour coming up, and it’d be great to see you all there for a final hoopla.

Steve n’ Keith

    That’s a bit of a shock – even thought they were starting to make a bit of a dent in Canada and major breakthrough was around the corner – its a real shame!
