Weekend Nachos to break up, final tour and album in the works

Posted by on January 4, 2016

Even at the beginning of the year, news of bands breaking up aren’t stopping and this time it’s also a fairly long-running band, Weekend Nachos. The band posted the following statement regarding their decision and their plans for the rest of 2016:

“To anybody who gives a shit,

We would like to announce with both sadness and excitement that 2016 will be the final year as a band for Weekend Nachos. It’s been almost 12 years and we have decided to hang it up. This is not for any reason other than the fact that all good things must eventually come to an end, and we are rapidly approaching the end of our time. It’s been an insane and crazy ride for us to see where we were able to take this band. Everything was done completely on our terms and with the same DIY spirit that we had when Andy and I first jerked each other off in our Dekalb apartment in 2004. We will continue to apply that sacred mindset towards our future projects and endeavors…I hope all of you will do the same.

We would like to thank anybody and everybody who ever shared this experience with us. Your support will never be matched and it has been a lot of fun. We will be playing a series of shows over the course of 2016 and as always, if you have a chance to see us, don’t sleep! We never know when we’ll be back. If it ever makes sense to play another show after our demise in the years to come, maybe we will, but don’t count on it.

Our 5th and final album, “Apology“, will become available sometime this year via Relapse Records, Cosmic Note and Deep Six Records. Thanks again, everybody.

Snyder, Jimbo, Gozer, and Byron 1/1/2016

It’s sad to see Weekend Nachos go, as their shows have always been intense and very unique on its own but this seems to be the case for many bands after some time. Catch the band during their final dates if you have the chance and, if your city isn’t listed above, the band will be adding a handful of dates and maybe your town will be lucky enough to see the boys on stage.
