Published Oct 24, 2007Details are sketchy but it appears San Diego-based art punks Some Girls have officially split, and their Seattle-based peers and Exclaim! regulars the Blood Brothers are on the verge of calling it a day.
Pitchfork has cleared up the announcement that the Blood Brothers are no more, after a string of music sites and blogs picked up a messageboard posting by Justin Pearson (Some Girls, the Locust, Head Wound City, close pal of the Blood Brothers, owner of Three One G), which read:
"i dont have buttons to be pushed anymore.
the blood bros broke up.
holy molar probably will not do anthing else. mark hates the band.
GUH is working on new stuff.
i heard that wes has a new project. nathan was telling me, something like "chrome jesus"? maybe im wrong.
sal is in geronimo and its so amazing.
i write my name at the end of my posts becuase this computer is open for anyone working at three one g to post on. so if its say "jp" its me, jp. if it does not, its not me.
According to Pitchfork, however, the band's management have confirmed the Brothers' status saying in an email: "They are taking a break currently for the rest of the year and will make any final decisions or announcements next year." In the meantime, Johnny Whitney and Cody Votolato will be focusing on their new band Jaguar Love.
