Smudge Announce Split

Manchester's Smudge have announced they have split up.

Message from the band:

"In 2009 Dan and Chris decided to leave the band and pursue in there own musical projects which left the rest of the band to make a big decision. The decision led to the end of Smudge and start of something new. Let it been known, we are all still the best of friends and have always been friends before a band and with that in mind we wish them the best of luck in their future choices, and no doubt we'll be supporting them along their way.

As for the rest of us, we are still very passionate about what we do and are already busy working on the brand new band. To catch up with what we are up to now, visit
