The Stands break up

Published: 2005-11-25
Liverpool band The Stands announced yesterday (November 24) that they'll be going their separate ways.

Frontman Howie Payne no longer wants to continue with the band and posted this on the band's official message board, "I thought I should be the one to break the news that after much thought I have decided to no longer continue with the stands, it has been a wonderfull few years or so but over the last months my heart has been slowly being drawn towards the idea of change and musical pastures new, there has been many changes leading to many reasons, recent times have been both creative and difficult in equal measure,i guess in order to seek clarity i want to now take the time to take some time to get some fresh air and move onto something new, we all thank each and every one of you all for all your support, taking the time to listen to our records and coming to see us play, it's been a pleasure, thank you so much to you all. Howie."

The Stands came together in 2002 and just released their most recent album Horse Fabulous in July.

This is a serious loss. The Stands are one of the most genuinely talented bands to have come out in the past 15 years. I'm very sorry to see them go, especially without the mass recognition that they deserve.
