The King Blues – Long Live The Struggle

Ok, I’m now officially in mourning. I cannot believe it, but The King Blues are splitting up! I have absolutely loved them for years now, their albums were brilliant, they’re such a great band who seem so genuine and heartfelt. But it seems they’ve gone far enough and published this message earlier on today…

“It is with great sadness and very heavy hearts that we must inform you, that as of today The King Blues are no more.

We are all immensely proud of our body of work. We will be releasing the last The King Blues album entitled ‘Long Live The Struggle’ as the final chapter. The album will be released in early July 2012

We simply feel we have taken things as far as they can go and it would be unfair on you if we were to go through the motions like so many other artists do. We all believe strongly in what The King Blues stands for.

Can we take this opportunity to thank you all so much for your support, love and passion down the years.

long live the struggle

in solidarity,

The King Blues”

There is a light at the end of the tunnel, a silver lining to this very, very dark cloud, in that they are producing one last album to be realised in July. I will certainly have that on preorder and I really can’t wait.

But, all in all, a sad day for The King Blues’ fans.

‘So shine your light so bright that all can see, Take pride in being whoever the fuck you want to be, throw your fist in the air in solidarity and shout

“Viva la punk, just one life, anarchy”.’
