Test Icicles Split

Published: 2006-02-23
After only one full length album UK dance punk band the Test Icicles are ready to call it quits.

The band consisting of Rory Aggwelt, Sam Merrann and Devonte Hynes came together in 2004 and were soon signed to indie label Domino Records. In 2005 they released their one and only album For Screening Purposes Only and toured the United States and Europe.

According to NME the group made a statement indicating "The band have just come off a European tour and are exhausted from the constant pressures of touring, subsequently they have cancelled their show at the NME Awards and US tour." They went further to say "The band will play their UK tour in April. Details for a final single to be taken from the album are to be announced. There are currently no plans to make another album or tour beyond this."

The band's absolute final show will be at the London Astoria on April 22.
