Elastica Split

By shane

With good news comes a dose of bad. NME is reporting this week that they have confirmation on the demise of ELASTICA. Rumours of the split have dogged the band all year -- Donna Matthews has been involved with a new group, while sources say that Justine and Donna havn't spoken to one another all year. NME revealed this week that one of their writers heard straight from Justine that the band were finished. This apparantly didn't sit well with Elastica's label Geffen, who immediately responded by saying that the new album has a 1999 release date and that the band have no intention of splitting. We'll of course keep you updated, but it's time to assume the worst.
