Pariso 2009-2015 R.I.P.

We are sad to announce that Pariso are splitting up. There will be one final 12" LP (see above) that we will be co-releasing with Tangled Talk Records. All preorders will run through Tangled Talk and are available now.

In their own words - 

"We are sad to announce that we are splitting up. There is no big story, fallouts or reasons….we simply always made a promise to ourselves that once it stopped being 100% fun then we would stop. That has now become the case.

We do however want to see out our band properly. We will be releasing one final 12” (one time pressing of 250 copies). Side A is comprised of 5 songs/18 minutes worth of new material we were working on for our third album, while Side B ties up the our discography with rarities and other material never granted a formal release. We have made it as cheap as possible without compromising our usual approach to our vinyl. If you own all five of our 12"s, you'll have everything we ever recorded.

We will also be doing one final show, details will be announced in due course. It will be in London and we hope it will be a special occasion.

All our merch (HERE) is now pay what you want we wont be printing any more merch or doing any final show merch. This is it.

Thank you to Andrej at Tangled Talk for always supporting us and believing in us no matter what, all ex-members and fill-ins of the band for your time and effort, and everyone else that ever gave us a show, a place to stay, appeared on one of our records or helped with a release or anything else in any way. Most of all though – thanks to ourselves for always doing exactly what we wanted, when we wanted, making the music we wanted to hear, travelling to fun places and having a top laugh. It was great."
