News: UNKLE split

An announcement on the band’s website UNKLE.com, confirms the following:

After 10 years of musical collaborators in UNKLE, James Lavelle and Richard File are going their separate ways – a decision that is mutual and amicable. Rich will be concentrating on his new band, ‘We Fell To Earth,’ who are currently in the studio working on their debut album.

Apparently, this also spells the end for Lavelle under the UNKLE moniker also.

Update:
The website has been changed to say that File has left UNKLE but that Lavelle will continue to make music and remix under the name UNKLE.

UNKLE – Burn my Shadow

  • The message that’s on their website now says Lavelle’s working on new UNKLE music.

  • Hmmm. So they’ve changed the press release.

  • Karl

    No surprises there, Lavelle was the brains of the operation anyway.
