Electrelane Saying Goodbye?

Months ago, as they hit the United States of America to play some shows in support of this year's No Shouts, No Calls, I blogged like a madman about this Brighton based quartet. And, much to my dismay, Pitchfork has just announced that after their current run of shows ends next month, they will be no more for now. They've decided after a decade of making albums, rocking out, and making me go hot for one guitarist (Mia Clarke, you are just beautiful,) to take a break, persue other things ya da ya da ya da.

In honor of their pending departure, I once again provide you the chance to download the greatest song by Electrelane, "Bells," and check out them doing a great homage to the Boss' "I'm On Fire" down below.

Catch them while you can, if you can that is:
11-09 Athens, Greece - Gagarin205
11-10 Thessaloniki, Greece - Xylourgeio-Mylos

11-16 Vevey, Switzerland - Rocking Chair
