The band has also revealed a new, potentially final, but awesome single Help Me, which was huge when we saw them live last month, as a thank you to all their fans. Check it out in the video below:
Announcing their split, an official statement reads as follows:
“Dear world, It is with a lot of mixed emotions and a heavy heart to announce to you all that we have decided to part ways.
“We have been working very hard on this band for a very long time now, and recently, the stress and financial pressure it has put on the four of us has began to come between our friendship, something more important to us than anything. We had a great run, and we can bow out with our hands held high knowing that we put everything into this band, and just because it has come to a natural end, we all learnt a huge amount and will take this forward in whichever musical projects we individually move forward with.
“We wanted to say some important thank yous while we have the chance.
“Firstly, to Mark, the person who has stood by the four of us through thick and thin, through all the amazing highs and some real lows, always a calming influence, we owe an unbelievable amount to you mate. To Mike, Chris and Emily at Hall Or Nothing for all their invaluable guidance and help. To Jamie, Jake and Jono, the dream team, thank you so much boys. To Alex Rawson for all his hard work for us over the last 5 years. To Rob, Si, Tom and Matt of Don Broco for giving us the best experience of our lives. To Kane, Jason P, Amy, Suzi, Pete K, Tom L, Charlie R, Dianne & Jake, Angus, William, Ant and everyone at Wilful, Steph at Domino and Rhys at Martian. To every promoter that has ever put us on a show. To every person who has ever come to a gig, bought some merch or listened to our music, you truly have given us memories that will stay with us for the rest of our lives.
“We can’t say right now whether anything may happen in the future, but for now anyway, this is the end for MassMatiks.
“Please accept this last tune as one final thank you to you all. We’ll see you around,
George, Joe, Martin & Josh
We saw MassMatiks play a superb set as they headlined Hoxton Bar & Kitchen last month in East London, and interviewed frontman George Peploe only a couple of months ago around the launch of One Foot In The Club, so this news comes a sad shock.
Good luck to all four of the guys, thank you for the music you’ve given us, and hopefully we’ll see them all back soon!
