Brooklyn’s LVL UP have announced they’re calling it a day. The four-piece, who released their Sub Pop debut ‘Return To Love’ in 2016, have shared a statement revealing that they’ll be breaking up after one final tour later this year.
Along with the announcement of the farewell tour, the band have shared one final track in the form of ‘Orchard’.
“We have decided to retire this project,” the statement reads. “It has been an extremely rewarding journey beyond anything we could have ever realistically imagined. The band began in a college dorm room in 2011 as a lighthearted recording project.
“We have since been lucky enough to tour nationally and internationally over the last seven years with the support of many lovely people, and will never be able to thank our friends, families, and loved ones enough for providing such warmth throughout this experience. Our deepest gratitude goes out to every label, band, and person who’s played a role in this wild ride.”
