A few weeks ago, The Middle East announced during their Splendour in the Grass set that they were to split. Subsequently, they took to their Facebook page to formally announce the break-up: “we don’t feel like playing anymore for a whole lot of reasons that i won’t list here and i’m afraid if we continued any longer it would just be a moneygrab. i’d rather go hungry.”
Still, the video for their single “Jesus Came To My Birthday Party” (off their new album I Want That You Are Always Happy) was just released, which makes it kind of bittersweet – like the video itself. Watch below.
