Ad7 confirm split

As revealed yesterday, Adequate 7 are calling it a day. The band, in a statement, said: “After nearly six years, and over 500 gigs, we’ve come to the decision that it’s the right time to call it a day. There are various reasons, too complicated to go into here. It seems self indulgent to make a big deal out of it, not least because we’ve seen the demise of so many great bands that we’ve been really close to, but don’t mind telling you that we’re all really gutted. We’re fortunate to be able to say that we haven’t fallen out, or experienced ‘musical differences’. I’m sure most of us will continue making music in one form or another. We’re going to be doing a last tour, and also a big final show in Cardiff towards the end of the year. The dates will be up on myspace and the website very soon. We’re going to release a final single and DVD as they’re already in the pipeline. We’ll keep you all updated with news about the single and DVD when it’s all sorted. We’d all like to sincerely thank everyone for all the love and support we’ve been shown over the years. We’ve had some amazing and unforgettable times, largely thanks to the people we’ve met along the way.”

Paul, otherwise known as Sav, is quite possibly the only member of the Punktastic team to actually have a proper job. But don't hold that against him. He's actually a proper journalist, (a reporter for a daily northern paper) and so adds a bit of credence to the team. Except you wouldn't think that by reading his reviews. Maybe somebody should tell him that it is quality and not quantity that counts! Sav actually ended up working for Punktastic after meeting Nick at university, and the pair bonded over all things punk rock. Another guitarist, he also "writes a lot of songs about relationships, and how mine went wrong." Oh, and he loves the Ataris, if you hadn't already noticed. In his spare time he worships at the church of Kris Roe... Other fave bands include: MxPx, New Found Glory, Blink 182, Weezer, Midtown, Reel Big Fish, The Get Up Kids, Alkaline Trio, NOFX, Green Day, Deftones, Lit and Silverchair to name but a few. Hobbies include, sleeping, drinking, eating fish and supporting Grimsby Town FC. But hey, somebody has to.
