The UK Progressive Rock band Oceansize announced today that they have broken up after 12 years and after releasing 4 albums and numerous EPs. No specific reason was cited and they said none was needed. The members will apparently move on to other projects.
I only got to see the band once in NYC in 2003 at the Mercury Lounge, but they were a pretty amazing live band. Joanna Newsome played right before them for some reason as part of a separate show. Needless to say the change in volume between shows was drastic. I loved the band and look forward to seeing what they produce as individuals.
