After much discussion and deliberation, we have decided to call time on Suicide By Cop. Upon hearing about some of our friends in bands going through changes and making similar decisions, it inspired us to look at our own situation.
We underwent a massive upheaval over 18 months ago when we lost our drummer and founder member Steve Ward and in hindsight, we should have taken this decision back then. In the intervening time, our new music and lyrics have been quite different and whilst Liam has done an admirable job of playing the older material and we played two great gigs, it has not felt like the same band for a long time. It led us to ask ourselves if we should continue trying to make it the same band.
Therefore, the two gigs we have coming up, namely The Black Swan, Bradford on 28th November with Stillwave and The Northern, Halifax Road, Bradford on 5th December will be our last. To co-incide with this we are releasing an album which consists of all of the music we recorded throughout the lifetime of the band from 2009-2013, including the 3 EPs and also some previously unreleased tracks. More news on this release to follow.
Thank you for your support over the last 6 years, it has been quite a ride!
