The members of Chumbawamba won’t be "Tubthumping" together any more. After 30 years, the band is splitting.
“That’s it then, it’s the end. [sic] with neither a whimper, a bang or a reunion. Thirty years of ideas and melodies, endless meetings and European tours, press releases, singalong [sic] choruses and Dada sound poetry, finally at an end,” the group said in a statement posted on its website. “We felt we’d got to a point where what we did as a band -- and specifically the writing, recording, touring cycle -- wasn’t doing justice to what Chumbawamba set out to do in the first place.”
While the news may come as a surprise to Chumbawamba’s fans, it’s even more shocking to us. We had no idea this late 1990s, one-hit wonder was still together. It’s just one of the groups we’re amazed stayed together so long.
Check out our list of other musical acts that we cannot believe are still at it. (By the way, we really, REALLY wish 'N Sync was on this list.)
