The Lucksmiths split!

It seems so. This just in from Mark Monnone. Maybe it's for the best...

Dear close friend of the Lucksmiths,

We're really sad to have this news to tell and sad to tell it to you like this, but the Lucksmiths have had a beautiful run, and we're putting them to bed for the last time. It's not you, it's us, so please don't feel too bad. We're playing some shows in Europe in July which were already booked, and then we're doing a victory lap of Australia in August.

We love you all, and hopefully we'll see you soon.

This is all coming out in a press release in a couple of days, but we thought we'd mention it to you personally... in a group email.

Much love,

Marty, Marky, Tali and Louis

In other news, I implore you to come and see Northern Portrait and The Electronic Pop Group and Red Shoe Diaries and Horowitz on Saturday. There's a poster up there all about it. It's what The Lucksmiths would've wanted.

Sad news, indeed. Final shows in August, I hear.
