After five years Glasgow's Dananananaykroyd
have announced their intention to split immediately after the conclusion of their forthcoming UK tour.
Drawing plaudits wide and varied for their explosive live performances, with their shows described by eGigs as, "always fun and a great way to bring people together!" The outfit produced two critically-acclaimed albums, their 2009 debut 'Hey Everyone
, and this year's 'There Is A Way
'. The band will release their final single 'Think & Feel
' digitally on 7th November 2011.
"We all still love each other very much
," says a statement from the group, "for a band called Dananananaykroyd we've done more than we ever expected or possibly even intended and we've enjoyed nearly every step of the way. We're very keen at the same time to make sure we're never compromising or giving anything less than 100% and at this juncture of our collective lives, it
makes sense to go out with a bang - which is exactly what this tour will
Following their show at Brainwash Festival
in Leeds and a date in Bristol, Dananananaykroyd's 12-date farewell tour begins in hometown Glasgow and ends in a giant sphere of blood, guts, human flesh, fire and rock in Newcastle on 12th November and calls over the UK beforehand.
