York band Borderline have today announced that they are stepping back from the band, but not without one last show.
James, Steve & Thomas, all from York but also partly based in Leeds, have released two EPs in their five years together as a band, The Duchess, named after York’s now-closed & much-loved venue, and Dispersion. The trio have enjoyed around 60 shows together in this time period but have decided to step back from the band for the foreseeable future, but will play one final show at The Fulford Arms on 22nd December 2021, aptly named: ‘hit me border one more line’.
Drummer James Brown has said: “We are incredibly grateful and thankful to everyone that has supported us on this journey. The three of us have come a long way in this time as musicians and as people, and we agreed that the right way to bow out, is by doing one final show at what we call the spiritual home of the band: The Fulford Arms in our hometown of York.”
“Personally, we would like to thank all of our friends & family for all the support shown to our passion for music in the last 5 years, without whom half the achievements of this band would have never happened, particularly to Claire & Joe Brown, as well as Andy Crilley, Chris Tuke & Chris Sherrington at The Fulford Arms, Dan Gott and Sam Christie for their support of the band and wisdom down the years.”
“Borderline has made it further than I ever could have imagined when myself & Thomas formed the band, and we are looking forward to celebrating and fondly looking back on the last five years in December.”
