Aussie pop/rock band Short Stack have split.
Singer Shaun Diviney issued the following post today (March 30, 2012) on the band’s Facebook page:
“As you may be aware, stack is no more,” he said. “To everyone who has supported the band in any way, i cannot thank you enough. From the ones who told their friends about us to the ones who camped out before shows. For me, since the band started when I was 15, it’s always been about the music I wrote and how it effected people. The greatest feeling was you singing my words back at a show, living with the albums and letting something I created be a part of your lives. These times will be some of the best of my life with the boys/the crew and we still remain the closest friends.
“But the show must go on. If you try to recapture yesterday you will only lose tomorrow. I am starting work on my next project which is honestly the best thing I have ever done. I’m falling in love with music all over again, feeling a fire I haven’t in years. I’m heading over to LA / NY mid year to write and do music, working with artists I love & enjoying life but most importantly i feel it’s time to START something again.
“See you on the road soon”
Short Stack formed in 2005 after the three members met on a train while attending the Hunter School of the Performing Arts in Newcastle.
In 2009 they released their debut album ‘Stack Is The New Black’. It reached no. 1 in Australia.
A second album ‘This Is Bat Country’ was released in 2010. It peaked at 6.
There is a third album titled ‘Art Vandelay’ but it has never been released.
