Brooklyn's Dirty on Purpose have announced they will perform their final show as a band this New Year’s Eve in New York City. The band will play for the final time, in the opening slot for friends, A Place To Bury Strangers at Mercury Lounge. The decision came after the band decided they did not want to record a new album together. In a statement from the band they said... "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." Later adding ... "Finally, we're all still buddies and live in the same town, so we reserve the right to change our minds and get back together in six months if we feel like it."
All the band members are still pursuing other music projects, Doug Marvin plays with Joe Jurewicz in Neckbeard Telecaster , George Wilson plays bass with Coin Under Tongue and Joe leads the band Joe and the Flying Spoons.
