Despite releasing their debut album ‘Awful Truth’ just last year, Scottish pop-punk group Woes have announced they’ll be calling it a day.
The self-proclaimed “bad boys of pop-punk” broke the news on social media, and thanked fans for their continued support. You can read their full statement below.

“Hey y’all. Unfortunately it’s time for us to end our amazing run. It may seem a little strange to bring an end to it after our most successful year as a band but unfortunately the pressure of managing a busy band and “real” life has been building up for a while now. For the sack of our health, happiness and well being we couldn’t continue as Woes any longer. We achieved everything we could have ever dreamed of. We traveled to amazing places, with amazing people, played amazing shows and made amazing friends. Most importantly though, we managed to spread a positive message, bring people together and hopefully be a part of memories you will all hold dear to you for a long time. I know we won’t forget all our adventures together any time soon.
Thank you for being a part of it, it means more to us that you could ever know.
Come see us at our final shows.
Positive vibes gang 2016-forever.”
As the band mention in their farewell statement, they’ve also announced a handful of final shows in the coming weeks, all of which are listed below.
JANUARY 30 – CARLISLE, The Brickyard
JANUARY 31 – LIVERPOOL, Jimmy’s
FEBRUARY 01 – SCUNTHORPE, Cafe INDIEpendant
