Dirty On Purpose lose sense of purpose

Dirty On Purpose will not be joining us in 2009; they're calling it a day on New Year's Eve:

After six years of spending an unhealthy and unusual amount of time together, Dirty on Purpose is going the way of the dodo. We got back from tour about a month ago and sat down to talk about recording another record, and realized we didn't really want to record another record. Not now anyway. So we're going our separate ways. Our best friends and practice space sharers of many years, A Place to Bury Strangers, offered us the opening slot on their New Year's Eve gig at Mercury Lounge. We thought it was an appropriate way to wind things down and say goodbye to our friends and fans.

They do admit it's quite possible they'll realise they've made a terrible mistake and reunite before the summer.

This is them, doing their thing: No Radio
