The Scare break up

Following months of speculation, Sydney based rockers The Scare have announced that they are breaking up.

In the official statement made today, the band’s lead singer Kiss Reid says: “It was a fun ride, it was a wild ride, at times it was a shit ride, at times you wanted it to never end type of ride. But alas all good things must come to an end, and now it’s our turn.”

The Scare first formed in Brisbane way back in 2004. After releasing two EPs the band relocated to Birmingham in the UK, where they solidified their reputation as a volatile live act and went on to release their debut album Chivalry.

After returning to Australia and basing themselves in Sydney, The Scare bunkered down in the studio with Silverchair’s Daniel Johns to record their acclaimed sophomore album Oozevoodoo, which was described by its FasterLouder reviewer as “a unique Australian release…edgy, clever, succinct and all above all else fun.”

To farewell their fans properly The Scare is playing four shows, with support at their Sydney date by Zeahorse and Psychonanny:

Friday 9th of July – Sussex Inlet Tavern, Sussex Inlet

Saturday 10th July – Rats at Colonial Hotel, Melbourne

Friday 16th July – Night Eats Day at Grand Hotel, Wollongong

Saturday 17th July – Annandale Hotel, Sydney
