After 6 years of memorable music, crazy live shows and whacky jokes,The Venetia Fair officially announced their break up today.
The band broke the news to their fans today on Facebook, in true TVF style:
“Please don’t make us be in The Venetia Fair anymore! Please please please! We will be in another band if you want, we still like each other a lot just please let it be a different one. We will be in Metallica if they will take us or we will just make another band that isn’t The Venetia Fair if that’s cool. We are very appreciative that you let us be The Venetia Fair for as long as you did but PLEASE let us stop being The Venetia Fair and then maybe let us continue not being The Venetia Fair FOREVER!!! We will play a show or two and you can listen to a song we made but after that please begin forgetting The Venetia Fair ever existed. If this is quoted somewhere in an article or blog or like maybe you are just telling your friend what we said, you better not say hiatus anywhere or we will be VERY mad! THANK YOU WE ARE SAD KIND OF YOU WERE ALL REALLY NICE TO US SEE YA ROUND OR WHATEVER!!!!!”
Though this news may sting, the guys aren’t leaving us empty handed. They’ve announced a series of 3 Farewell Shows (HERE) this February (MA, RI, NY), and have also posted one final song, “Death Is The Poor Man’s Doctor” (HERE) to Bandcamp as a parting gift.
Also, be sure to check out the band’s Online Store (HERE), to grab a their remaining merch while it lasts!
Though we’re sorry to see them go, talks with certain members have revealed that this may not be the last we hear from them…so stay tuned!
