Thanksgiving Is Cancelled, Everyone. Leatherface Might Have Broken Up

Leatherface, who’ve been around since before every band AbsolutePunk covers was born, were scheduled to play a show in Manchester tomorrow. But the show promoter posted this cryptic message on the event’s Facebook page: 

‎** CANCELLED DUE TO BAND SPLITTING UP ** REFUNDS FROM POINT OF PURCHASE **

And while the band hasn’t confirmed it officially, we’re going to go ahead and call bullshit. For these reasons:

  1. It’s what we want to believe and that should be good enough dammit.
  2. Show promoters are notoriously dickish and petty when shows go awry.
  3. The band has yet to confirm.
  4. Leatherface is pretty much just Frankie Stubbs and a rotating roster of hired musicians. Pretty sure if there were internal problems with the band, Frankie could just say, “I’m outta here and I’m taking my rasp and all my songs about England with me. Later, mates!”
  5. WE REALLY FUCKING DON’T WANT IT TO BE TRUE BECAUSE ‘MUSH’ IS THE BEST ALBUM EVER ALL HAIL FRANKIE STUBBS. 

Let us know if you hear any updates. This will determine whether or not we have anything to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.
