Another band bites the dust. Today (July 23) Nashville rock band Diarrhea Planet announced they’re breaking up. In their statement, the band explains “nothing really happened.” Rather, they felt it was time to move on and bring an end to the band.
Planeteers! We would like to announce that on September 7th and 8th Diarrhea Planet will perform our FINAL TWO SHOWS as a band in Nashville, TN at the Exit/In. Whenever a band breaks up, it’s really annoying when there isn’t an explanation. So here it is: Nothing really happened. We all feel that Diarrhea Planet has run its course (yeah we finally made a poop joke but fuck it y’all love it) and are ready to move on to the next chapters of our lives. So here’s to living the good life and catching up on the things we all lived without while basically living on the road the last 7ish years. We will always cherish the time we spent playing together. The connection was real, it was exciting and electric. And most of all; we will always be grateful for each and every one of you who came to our shows. We did this for you. We lived this for you. Thank you for receiving our message, we love you all, and look forward to shredding for 2 final nights, DP with the home court advantage at EXIT/IN 9/7 and 9/8 ~ Nashville, TN
Before signing off, they’ll play their last two shows September 7 and 8 in Nashville, TN at Exit/In.
The band formed in 2009 and self-released their debut EP, Aloha! the same year. Their full length debut, Loose Jewels, came in 2011. They went on to release to more LPs: 2013’s I’m Rich Beyond Your Wildest Dreams and 2016’s Turn to Gold.
