White Rose Movement: The end of the movement

Tomorrow and Thursday, it's your last chance to see the bloody brilliant White Rose Movement before the become one of this nation's great lost bands:

It is with great sadness that we announce that the collective that has been White Rose Movement has decided to call it a day. It has been a very hard decision to make, White Rose Movement has been our lives and passion for these past few years.

We were lucky enough to release our first album which we are all proud of, unfortunately, the second has proved more difficult. Although it has been finished for some time, we have faced many brick walls and without the relevant support, it has proved a struggle to sort its final flight into the public domain. It's an album that we have spent much time compiling and we hope that you'll get to hear it somehow so that your waiting has not been in vain.

We would like to say that your support has been absolutely incredible. It has been a pleasure playing to you in your cities and we thank you profusely for the opportunity to do so. We've had some of the most outrageous, fun, hilarious and at times surreal moments with this band and we won't forget a single second.

Some of you have become our good friends and our loyal supporters and it's wonderful to know that our music made some sort of connection with you. This makes this goodbye all the more painful. There's a lot of love in this band and despite its demise, we will remain the best of friends.

We would like to say that our last three shows will be the following: Babylon, Istanbul on the 26th of March Suite Festival in Madrid on the 15th of April Sala Santana 27 in Bibao on the 16th of April

We hope you can join us,

Team White Rose x

Nothing in the Digital Economy Bill would have changed this state of affairs. Sadly missing you already.
