So long! Nitidus on indefinite hiatus.

by on Jun.01, 2009, under News

So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish (by avpjack) It has been a long time coming, but today we’re officially announcing that Nitidus is on indefinite hiatus and will no longer be performing in the foreseeable future.  To paraphrase Billy Gould at the break up of Faith No More in 1998, The decision among the members is mutual, and there will be no pointing of fingers, no naming of names, other than stating, for the record, that ‘PC started it’. 🙂

Early in 2008, lead singer Patrick “PC” Clemenger made the hard decision to move back to New Zealand to start a family, while Nitidus continued to perform around Melbourne as a three-piece with Marki, Adam and myself (Doc).  The four of us reunited once more in February 2009 for the A.R.E.A. 9 festival in New Zealand, where we had an absolute blast.  We had great creative chemistry, despite not having played together in almost a year.  When the three of us inevitably returned to Australia, we no longer wanted to continue as Nitidus without founding member PC on the mic.  As a three piece, we feel that the band has changed significantly, and so it was agreed to hang up the Nitidus name.

We’d like to thank everyone who has supported us over the years, we couldn’t have come this far without you.  We hope you will continue to support us in our next endeavours, but more on that soon.

PC, Marki, Adam and Doc remain on good terms and continue to be active musicians.  You haven’t seen the last of us, so make sure you’re subscribed to this blog for news in the near future.

So long… for now.
