On Monday Five Iron Frenzy announced the end of an era. They’re calling it quits. It’s kind of sad when your favorite band from high school throws in the towel. But they’ve had a pretty long ride, especially considering that they burst on to the scene with a specialized style of music that really didn’t last long. But you gotta love ’em.
Of course, Five Iron is going out in style. They’re planning to have one final hurrah in 2003 and call it quits at the end of the year. In the spring they plan to release a B-sides of album of goofy songs. The tentative title is “Cheeses of Nazareth.” In the summer they plan to release their final studio album, and then go out one last tour, which will be called “Winners Never Quit: The Farewell Tour.”
