Wow...that was quick. The band from Lincolnshire has called it quits quicker than you can say "buzz band". The announcement was made via a MySpace bulletin sent out by band member Todd Marriott.
The message is as follows:
"Hello friends, here goes. Tonight (June 5) we have decided that I Was A Cub Scout has and must now come to a close. We have had countless problems over the past year or so and with yet more occurring we it best to end on what would seem like a decent note...We will be honouring all of our UK shows of which we have confirmed, with the iTunes festival at KOKO with Death Cab For Cutie on July 14 being our last...We will speak more of it all soon, but for now we must tour. It is a very sad day for us."
I must say after catching them for about half a second at SXSW, I wasn't that impressed with them live. Although the band only had one album and it was quite a lovely one.
