Clip: Dead Moon Call It Quits
Dead Moon Call It Quits
After two decades and too many releases to count (on both hands
anyway), Clackamas, Oregon garage rock institution Dead Moon have
entered the new moon phase, and fans shouldn't expect another cycle to
begin anytime soon.
"After 20 yrs, Dead Moon is retiring," reads a message posted on the
Sub Pop site earlier today. "It has been a journey we will always
treasure and feel that a worldwide family has emerged in its place.
Dead Moon became much bigger than the band itself, it became a DIY
underground hopeful for a lot of people. The candle is still burning!
Their official website, located here, is currently down (on purpose,
perhaps?), so that's about all we can tell you for now. The
disbandment follows Dead Moon's best-of two-disc set, Echoes of the
Past, which was released via Sub Pop in September.
