Big changes on the horizon, wheels in motion for new music, gigs and all that jazz (well, “all that alt.blues and roots”, if you prefer). Starts on kind of a downer and builds from there, yeah?
Here’s the word from Dog Moon Howl …
After five years of rehearsing, songwriting, recording and intermittent gigging, we feel it’s time for Dog Moon Howl to wind things down. We’re opting for the popular showbiz euphemism “extended hiatus”.
Unfortunately, for unrelated reasons we’ve had to pull out of the October gig at Nice’N’Sleazy, so as it stands we’ll no longer be active after our upcoming support slot with Lionize at the ABC2 on August 1st. We may take the very occasional gig if we get the right offer but we won’t be chasing live work or working on new material for the foreseeable future.
There’s no bad blood involved, not even musical differences. In fact we’ll be continuing to work together, though on a very different project. More news on that soon.
Anybody who wants a last hurrah with the band can head over to dogmoonhowl.bandcamp.com for half price tickets to the ABC2 show. In the meantime, thanks to those of you (family, friends, bands, bloggers and broadcasters) who’ve supported us over the years.
