Chumped Will Go On an Indefinite Hiatus
The group announced their separation via Facebook today
SPIN Artist to Watch Chumped earned a bit of attention last year with their excellent debut record, Teenage Retirement. Today, however, the band has announced via Facebook that tomorrow’s Fest 14 set in Gainesville, Florida will be their last. See the band’s statement below:
To our friends:
It brings us a metric fuck ton of feels to say this, but tomorrow will be our last show for an indefinite period of time.
We play FEST at The Wooly at 10:20PM (tmw, sunday).
It would be really special if you all would come out to help us celebrate.
Chumped played for the first time in front of other humans on February 5th, 2013. We never could have imagined the things that a little project started in an apartment in New York City could have allowed us to experience. We have traveled incredible distances, made beautiful friends and actualized seemingly impossible dreams. Thank you to everyone who has been a part of this project, who has listened, who has helped, who has believed in us, who has loved us. We love you. And we never could have done any of this without you.
See ya on the flip side ?
Drew, Dan, Doug & Anika
