Kids in Glass Houses Announce Split

KIDS IN GLASS HOUSES are to part ways after a farewell tour in October 2014, it was announced today.

The band issued a statement with frontman Alex Phillips saying: “Now is the right time for us to split”.

He continued to say the following:

“It’s a surreal and daunting moment when you realise that you’re contemplating bringing to an end something that has given you unquantifiable joy and satisfaction, and this is so personal that it embodies who you are or have perceived as for so long.”

“It’s not a easy void to comprehend filling, but I think now is the right time for us to do it. We’re all unified in this belief and excited by the prospect of ending things in the best possible spirit at the end of the year. We’ve known this day was coming for quite a while and have done our best to make sure that the next few months are as memorable as those years that have come before. I really can’t thank everyone who has supported us enough.”

The band will embark on a 21 date farewell tour starting at Plymouth’s White Rabbit on 5th October and finishing for good at Cardiff’s Great Hall on 31st October.
