Today Townsville band The Middle East announced that they were playing their final show during their set at Splendour in the Grass today.
It isn’t the first time they’ve called it a day: in 2008 they broke up and reformed one year later to release The Recordings of the Middle East EP. It’s unclear how likely this latest announcement is to be serious seeing that the band released their first official album I Want That You Are Always Happy earlier this year.
It’s a shame really. While their album was long and bloated, their EP hinted at amazing potential even if they will never reach the heights of Blood again.
