Irish math rockers Adebisi Shank have announced they are to call it quits as a band after a 8 year career.

The band’s final Irish shows will take place tonight and tomorrow at Whelan’s in Dublin. Adultrock will provide support at the first show, whilst Cian Nugent will do so at the second. Their final album was the critically acclaimed ‘This Is the Third Album of a Band Called Adebisi Shank’, released last month via Sargent House.

Here’s the statement by the band about the break-up:

“Dear friends,

We hereby announce the end of a band called Adebisi Shank. From the three of us to all of you, thank you for coming with us on this crazy journey. To Cathy and the Sargent House crew past and present, thank you for believing in us.

Life and music moves on – Lar is making music in All Tvvins, Vin is producing/mixing, working on video games and other cool stuff as VMC Sound, and is also one half of Speed of Snakes. Mick will continue to train for his UFC career.

This Thursday and Friday in Whelans, we will play on an Irish stage for the very last time. Join us if you can. After that, we intend to honour our one existing overseas tour commitment.

To any kids starting bands we offer one piece of advice – play music you love, with people you love, for the people you love.

We saw a million faces

Vin, Lar + Mick (-_-) xxx”
