Here’s one we didn’t see coming first thing on a Friday morning… Not such good news for fans of Budgewoi outfit Short Stack today, with Shaun, Andy and Bradie confirming on their Facebook page that the band has decided to call it a day.
The statement reads;
As you may or may not know, Short Stack has decided to call it a day. thank you so much for your support over the years, we really cannot express how much it means that you have let our music be a part of your lives and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. also a big thanks to all our crew and management / label; and even though we are no longer making music, we still remain the closest friends.
The band started when we were 15 and never imagined in a million years it would achieve what it has, and we are proud to say that after 8 years we are ending on top.
This was by no means an easy decision, but at the end of the day it was obvious each of us are moving on to much bigger things and are ready for the next chapter.
We hope you enjoy our last release SOUL.
Once again, thank you for giving us the greatest adventure, your support means the world to us.
Shaun, Andy & Bradie”
The boys burst onto the scene in 2008 with their debut single ‘Shimmy A Go Go’, which hit the top 40. They followed that up with a string of chart successes including a No.1 with their debut long player ‘Stack Is The New Black’. Both that and its successor ‘This Is Bat Country’ achieved gold sales accreditations, for sales of more than 35,000 copies.
As mentioned in the statement, the boys’ final single is entitled ‘Soul’. A slightly heavier outing, you can check out the official video below.
