God DAMN it. Another one for the tally of great bands lost this year.
That’s right folks; Twelve Gauge Records’ noisy hardcore signing Throats announced last night on Twitter that – and I quote directly – “THROATS IS DEAD. FUCK OFF”.
They later elaborated:
“We have decided to call it a day. We are thinking about a last show but it’s not 100% certain yet. Some leftover merch will be going cheap on the bigcartel in a few days. Goodbye.”
Seems like one of those things we won’t get much more information about. They played some damn good shows and put out some damn good records; not a dud amongst them. They will be missed by those who knew them.
