It’s awesome that Manchester's Swiss Lips are releasing a new track today, but unfortunately this release comes with some sad news...
They’re breaking up. I’m afraid it’s true. It’s unexpected and surprising, coming barely six months after their much anticipated debut album release.
As a group they describe having ‘major label syndrome’ and the official word from the band is this..
“We have decided that this is the end for Swiss Lips. The thing we loved the most became a drain, it's pretty gruesome out there for a small band in 2015. To anyone who cares or cared, we thank you for coming along for the ride, and more importantly for the support you gave, we truly appreciate it and had some amazing times. All ends bring new beginnings, hopefully see you around. Sam, Luke, Tim, Tom & Nic.”
Swiss Lips are going out with a bang. Later this week they're releasing Overflowing Futures, a new album of previously unreleased material and remixes. This track, "Got It Bad," is the first release from it and will be made available as a freebie download.
It’s a thoughtful title to pick for a final album, for a band that together weren't able reach their full potential. I'm hopeful that as this act winds down, members of Swiss Lips turn up in other music projects in the future.
