Dan Vapid recently announced in an interview that the Methadones would soon be calling it quits.
The Methadones have played consistently for 10 years, which is more than any band/project I’ve been a part of. We had our share of problems but were always intent on working past them. For the last 5 years every member has gone through a period of giving a shit and not giving a shit, all at different times. It got to the point where I felt like we were just going through the motions and forcing it.
The band, one of Vapid’s side projects from Screeching Weasel, will play two final shows in 2010. They will play Insubordination Fest, and are planning on one final show at the end of the year in Chicago.
Vapid stated that,
My goal is to play a last show and move on. I hope to have a great band experience for these last two shows. I think the other guys would agree. I’ll continue playing with Screeching Weasel, Riverdales, and Noise By Numbers.
Vapid also confirmed that the band would put out one last release, a collection of B-Sides, outtakes, and some new songs.
