The Chumbawamba breakup news is true. After 30 years together, the ’90s band is throwing in the towel and moving on to, hopefully, greener pastures.
The news broke today as the band announced their breakup on their official site, saying they plan to end things “with neither a whimper, a bang, or a reunion. Thirty years of ideas and melodies, endless meetings and European tours, press releases, sing-along choruses, and Dada sound poetry, finally at an end.”
The sad news has made the band a trending topic on Twitter and caused fans to feel bad for the band that they once loved so much.
“Truly sad; Chumbawamba is breaking up. Everyone in US knows them from Tubthumping, but they did a lot of cool political stuff. Great band,” said one Twitter user.
Apparently, after so much time together and one major hit called “Tubthumping” in 1997, the band has had enough of music and wants to move on with their lives.
Are you surprised that Chumbawamba is breaking up? Were you aware of who they were before they started trending on Twitter?
Hopefully the band will find a new calling and be happy with whatever it is they choose to do in the future!
