Although not strictly speaking metal, more than one of us has a soft spot for Oceansize (Tim even reviewed last year’s Self Preserved While The Bodies Float Up), so today’s annonucement of their split is saddening nonetheless. From their Facebook page:
We regret to inform you that Oceansize has split up.
An explanation for this occurrence is neither forthcoming or indeed necessary…
All that remains is to say THANK YOU for being there for us. It’s been a very eventful and life-affirming 12 years.
We’ll miss you.
There will be more music from each of us as soon as possible.
So I guess we’ll never know why, but at least new music will be forthcoming from the members individually. I’ll leave you with “It’s My Tail And I’ll Chase It If I Want To” from the aforementioned album.
