Alternative Icons The Butterfly Effect Have Officially Called It A Day

The Butterfly Effect

Brisbane Alternative Rock outfit, The Butterfly Effect, have been rather quiet over the last two years and, after some speculation, it has been confirmed that the iconic foursome have officially split up.

After a career spanning a solid 17 years that included a self-titled EP, three (Gold Certified) studio albums and an impressive spate of tours The Butterfly effect have decided “the time has come to provide a proper send off to the project”. “This is the Final Conversation. It ends here,” says the official statement on their website.

With the band’s momentum slowly declining over the last five years, even they admit that this comes as no surprise. After the departure of frontman Clint Boge, many considered this to be the end despite subsequent releases like Eyes Down with new vocalist Paul Gallagher. While the band members considered The Butterfly Effect to be the culmination of their “life’s work”, they seemed to struggle to find the motivation to continue on after their hiatus in 2014.

“Regardless of personalities, this project is a part of us all and the bond through the music we made will never be broken. Ending now with grace and celebration of an incredible fifteen years is the right thing to do”, says Boge.

As a celebration of their time together and final hoorah for their fans, The Butterfly Effect’s entire collection, including ‘Begins Here’, ‘Imago’ and ‘Final Conversation Of Kings’, are now available on vinyl. Additionally an official Youtube account has been setup so fans can reminisce over their favourite heavy hits from the beloved alternative foursome.
