Pretty Vicious Announce Split

Wednesday, 23 October 2019 Written by Laura Johnson

Pretty Vicious is coming to an end.

The Welsh band, who released their long-awaited debut album 'Beauty Of Youth' this summer, broke the news via social meda that they won't play or make music together under the current moniker beyond 2019. Their December shows in London, Exeter and Cardiff will be their last as Pretty Vicious.

In 2020 they will return with a new name and singer, with frontman Brad Griffiths having taken a break from the band earlier this year due to mental health issues.

Read the full statement from them below:

"It is with heavy hearts that we have decided that the band cannot continue on the emotional rollercoaster we have been riding for the last five years. Events since we finished the album have meant that we could not promote the album which we are so proud of. For all the highs and lows, trials and tribulations there are basic functions that a band need to be able to carry out, and we haven’t been able to do that. As a result, the relationship within the band has fractured beyond repair.

"We have come to the conclusion that we all need to move on unencumbered by the baggage attached to Pretty Vicious and re-surface in 2020 like a phoenix from the ashes under a new guise and with another singer.

"The three shows in December will be the last under the name Pretty Vicious.

"Thank you to all of our fans for their support over the years. Us three will see you in 2020 with a whole new project! (Already got a bunch of new songs ready to go)!!!

"Elliot, Jarvis & Tom x"
