It has been a long, warm and colourful ride we’ve shared with Bluejuice. But the ride has come to an end. Following 13 years together the Sydney group has decided that the end of the year will also see the end of the band. Fortunately, they’ll be leaving fans with a new single, a greatest hits compilation and a tour. Jake Stone: “It’s been 13 years, and we don’t want to be a shit band and we don’t want to hang on until you lose interest in us. So we’re releasing one new song, and we’re punching as hard as we ever did. It’s not the worst thing that’s ever going to happen. We’re not dead yet.” Their farewell single is titled ‘I’ll Go Crazy’ and was produced by Dann Hume. The album, meanwhile, is Retrospectable. The Barwon Club, Geelong – October 12.
