Jurassic 5 are to split up following their current tour.
Soup, aka Zaakir from the group, has said that the future of the band is uncertain. The band who came to prominence in the 1990s with their breakthrough track Concrete Schoolyard, released their fourth album last year to mostly poor reviews. He said:
“After the tour, that’s basically it, I don’t want to sit here and fake around with it – we’re not seeing eye-to-eye right now. People see us as a harmonising, loving group, but that’s far from the truth, I’d like to keep it going, but you can’t force grown men to do what they don’t want to do.
Even though we do what we do doesn’t mean we’re the best communicators. For certain members it’s been brewing for a while – I’ve heard in passing there are things that could have been brought up a long time ago about how people were feeling that weren’t said.”
