Bluejuice Are Breaking Up, But Not Before A Farewell Tour

Bluejuice are officially calling it quits at the end of 2014. The ever-so-quirky Sydney group have announced a new single, a greatest hits compilation and the national Retrospectable farewell tour to celebrate their 13 years together.

Speaking with triple j‘s Matt Okine and Alex Dyson, Bluejuice’s Jake Stone and Stavros Yiannoukas said that the time had come for them to go “out on a high note”.

“It’s been 13 years,” Jake said. “And we don’t want to be a s**t band and we don’t want to hang on until you lose interest in us. So we’re releasing one new song, and we’re punching as hard as we ever did. It’s not the worst thing that’s ever going to happen. We’re not dead yet.”

“It’s over. We’re going on a farewell tour. Maybe we might sneak in a festival show,” Stavros added. “There are a lot of chances to see us before the end of the year.”

Bluejuice’s retrospective record, Retrospectable, will pull together highlights from the band’s 3 studio albums, Problems, Head of the Hawk and Company, which was the band’s last full-length release. The album will also feature some new material, and what the band are calling “some extra treats and pleasures”.

Retrospectable is being foreshadowed by the release of new single I’ll Go Crazy, which was produced by Dann Hume (Sticky Fingers, Alpine) and co-written by Alex Burnett (Sparkadia) and Jake Stone.

I’ll Go Crazy is out now via iTunes. Retrospectable will see its release on 19th September. Bluejuice’s last headline tour, Retrospectable: The Farewell Tour, will be the group’s last hurrah. Full tour details below.
