The Take's final gig plans

As you may or may not have heard, The Take have decided to call it a day. We're truly saddened by this news as they really were one of our favourate bands in the UK, like, ever.
We remain humbled by the fact that we even got to release the band's 2nd album, Dolomite. Bands of The Take's calibre do not come along often in this country and they will be sorely missed.
From the band themselves:
For a variety of reasons, we've decided to decided to call it a day. The break up all culminated in a short space of time but was basically unavoidable.
Apart from being an escape to focus our creative energies, this band has acted as a way of meeting some of the most amazing people from our locale, up and down the U.K. and across the globe. People who will stay friends long after the dust settles, the guitars have been unplugged and after our ears have stopped ringing.
Thanks to everyone who has supported and helped us over the years. It's still mind blowing to us that people spent their hard earned money on buying our records and coming to see us play.
I think that's about it. Thanks again, and take care!
Jim, Charles, Pete and Nat.
The Take will play one final gig on the 6th April at Clwb Ifor Bach, Cardiff. Supports will no doubt be announced soon so keep checking back.
We wish Jim, Charlie, Pete and Nat all the best for the future.
R.I.P. The Take.
