It's been a while since Aereogramme was in the news. The last time we heard from them was when their third album, Seclusion, came out last year. Now, after nine years of being together the band has decided to call it a day. The group will do some final shows and also made an official statement that you can read below.
It is with heavy hearts that we tell you all that Aereogramme have decided to split up. Reasons are multiple and complex. It is however fair to say that the never ending financial struggle coupled with an almost superhuman ability to dodge the zeitgeist have taken their toll, ensuring that we just don't have any fight left in us.
We are immensely proud of the four albums that we made over the past seven years. We hope that they continue to grow in your hearts. We plan to honour and celebrate the beautiful friendships we have made along the way with these final shows over the summer.

We would like you all to consider our headline show at the QMU in Glasgow to be our farewell UK show and to view The Connect Festival in Inverary as a damn fine opportunity for everyone to see The Jesus And Mary Chain. The Omas Teich festival is ironically our first festival headline slot. We would love to say goodbye to as many of our German friends as possible here. Flowers will be graciously accepted at all performances.
Finally we want to thank you all for listening to our music and coming to our shows over the years. You have given us a glimpse of something truly special.
