Mrs. Magician are calling it quits. The surf-inspired indie-rock group announced via their Facebook page that they’ll play their final show on Friday, Dec. 27, at Soda Bar.
“So… this is gonna be our last show,” the post reads. “Thanx for being a part of our band for the last 4 years. Peace doods. RIP MRS MAGICIAN.”
Shortly after, Soda Bar also posted on its website, “Sadly, this will be the last ever Mrs. Magician show.”
When CityBeat reached out to Mrs. Magician frontman Jacob Turnbloom, the singer and songwriter declined to comment on the reasons behind the split.
Drummer Cory Stier, who took a break from the band during the fall because of touring commitments with Cults, said he was disappointed to hear of the breakup, but he also said that there are no hard feelings about it.
“I am bummed it’s coming to an end, because I felt the band had at least another great record left to record,” Stier said in an email.
Mrs. Magician formed in 2010 and released their debut album, Strange Heaven, in 2012, via Swami Records, which was recorded by label founder and Rocket from the Crypt frontman John Reis. In September, the band released a collection of b-sides and rarities, titled B-Sides, though the group never released an official follow-up to their debut. Shortly before announcing they were splitting up, Mrs. Magician released a new 7-inch single featuring the songs “Friday Night” and “Crosses,” which was issued as part of a vinyl subscription series on Windian Records.
Rock duo Little Hurricane have announced that their second album, Gold Fever, will be released on March 4, via Death Valley Records. The album was produced by singer Tone Catalano, and the group is launching a tour in February with John Butler Trio to support the album.
