Following an ’emotional’ set of shows in Whelan’s last Thursday and Friday, Adebisi Shank have called it a day and just before the shows they announced the news.
For many, Adebisi were a big influence, or even just a go to act for a kick ass show. Like many good and great bands to leave the scene they’ll be missed, but we’ll see them around in the other side projects.
Below is a statement from the band, RobMoro wishes them the best of luck with ALL TVVINS, Speed of Snakes and more.
We hereby announce the end of a band called Adebisi Shank. From the three of us to all of you, thank you for coming with us on this crazy journey. To Cathy and the Sargent House crew past and present, thank you for believing in us.
Life and music moves on – Lar is making music in All Tvvins, Vin is producing/mixing, working on video games and other cool stuff as VMC Sound, and is also one half of Speed of Snakes. Mick will continue to train for his UFC career.
This Thursday and Friday in Whelans, we will play on an Irish stage for the very last time. Join us if you can. After that, we intend to honour our one existing overseas tour commitment.
To any kids starting bands we offer one piece of advice – play music you love, with people you love, for the people you love.
We saw a million faces
Vin, Lar + Mick (-_-) xxx”
