Noisia to split after 20 years
"For almost 20 years, all three of us wanted pretty much the same, but we’ve developed, and realized that nowadays we want different things"
Noisia have announced that they intend to split next year.
The announcement calls time on the trio's 20-year career together and they will embark on one final world tour, dubbed the 'It's Never The Right Time' tour, next year.
"After 20 years of being Noisia, we are ready to become something new," says a statement shared by the trio. "We’ve all grown, as people and as musicians. For almost 20 years, all three of us wanted pretty much the same, but we’ve developed, and realized that nowadays we want different things. If we all wanted the same different things, it would make sense to do that as a different Noisia, but we want different different things.
The statement continues: "We want to celebrate our 20th year and the past 20 years together with everyone who’s been involved and made it all possible. We want to go out with a blast and say goodbye to our fans properly, so that we can look back and say 'it was an amazing era, and we finished it in style'. We want to do one last year of touring DJ shows, one last year of Noisia Radio, and finish and release the music that we’ve been working on together."
They describe the split as a "hard decision to make" but add that it "feels like the only right thing to do without breaking what [they've] built". You can read the full statement below.
Forming in 2000 after meeting as grafitti fans in Groningen during the late '90s, Nik Roos, Martijn van Sonderen and Thijs de Vlieger have gone on to release two studio albums and remix the likes of Moby, Katy Perry and Pendulum. Skrillex has consistently name-checked them as mentors and inspirations for his own work.
They remixed Pendulum's track 'Hold Your Colour' last year as part of the Australian outfit's 'The Reworks' album.
