The Open Split

Published: 2006-05-30
UK Indie rockers The Open have decided to call it a day.

The band came together in 2002 and released their debut album The Silent Hours in 2004. After the release of their second and last album Statues in 2006 the band has decided to go their separate ways.

The band posted the official word of their break up on the band's official websiteMySpace and by all accounts the split seems to be amicable:, "Here is the official word. The news is that we have indeed decided to call the it a day with The Open. We leave the two records that we are very very proud of and memories that will remain in our hearts forever.".

"Some of us will continue on our path through music. Some of us will not. We all wish each other the greatest of luck. No excuses, no regrets, no big philosophical kiss off, it's just the end of one journey and the start of another. Bless you all for your support over these last years and goodbye. Steve, Jon, Jim, Alan and Roger.".
