Until we meet again…

March 21, 2016

I am very sorry to announce that due to personal reasons, Stu, Al and Matt have decided to leave Darktown Jubilee. We remain the best of friends and I wish them every success in their future endeavours. I intend to continue writing, recording and releasing work under the name Darktown Jubilee but for the foreseeable future at least, there will be no live shows. The release of the Deluxe edition of City Of Light will still go ahead as planned in the late Spring (date to be announced shortly) followed by a brand new EP in the Autumn. I will also be recording and playing live with my acoustic/roots side project ‘Fine Lines’ so I hope to see some of you out on the road soon. I would like to take this opportunity, on behalf of myself, Stu, Al and Matt to say thank you to you all for your immense support over the last 4 years …its been a blast!
Much love
David x
