Sad news from the long Thanksgiving weekend: Manchester post-punk anthem-crafters WU LYF are apparently no more. Before you put on their only record Go Tell Fire to the Mountain for a nostalgic spin, check out their farewell track “T R I U M P H,” which the band posted to YouTube as their last act. It’s a bittersweet listen – it’s a great track, all spiky guitar and shouted group vocals in the vein of the band’s best numbers, so it’ll make you sad you won’t hear any more from them.

From the band:

“By the time I wrote this I was all ready gone. You know you aint got nothing but time, but time isn’t an infinite currency I want to see wasted. If this is our last month living, apocalypse looming, I am not going to spend my final hours waiting in purgatory. I am done. There is nothing here that inspires/ interests me beyond the emptiness for dreams. and I don’t want to spend my life asleep; dreaming of a….

“Wake up! We stay safe/ everything is golden/ in this place.

“WU LYF is dead to me. The sincerity of “Go tell fire” was lost in the bull shit of maintaining face in the world we live. Clap your hands chimp everybody’s watching. A year spent losing faith; Innocence lost wide eyes see clear the dark. There’s blood running down streets of every city in the world, what’s a song to do, pretend it mean everything/nothing to you. Another distraction from the world we live. I and I struggle for a based positivity; Get free or die trying; J C Hung him self up for the easy way out. so Broken Mama Cita be kind to me.”
