"We are sadly going to be calling it a day as from August, This was not an easy choice to make, but we just feel They Died Too Young has come to a natural end..
we are more than happy with all that we have done and achieved..
We never wanted to get onto Top of the pops, but just to travel around with each other, meet new people and play with some of the best bands in the country which we very much enjoyed doing//
We've been playing together since we were 16, and it was nearly ten years ago exactly since our first gig at the Peel way back in August 1998...
Some of you will remember the days of 'Throat Oyster' (one show only in a kitchen) 'Anti-Womb' and 'The Womb'.. and if you do, thanks for still being our friend.
Thanks to everyone who has ever been to a show, played with us, put us on, put us up for the night, made us breakfast, bought a cd, worn a t-shirt or badge, or supported us in anyway.We are all best of friends still and will all surely be doing other projects in the future so keep your eyes peeled.
Our last ever gig will be at our spiritual home of the Fighting Cocks in Kingston, and it would mean the world to us if you came down and said goodbye. Its on Saturday August 9th and we will be sure to dust off some old songs for old friends too."
