The Beta Band Split

Scottish rockers THE BETA BAND have split after eight years together.

The BROKE/WON foursome, comprising of STEVE MASON, RICHARD GREENTREE, JOHN MacLEAN and ROBIN JONES, announced today (02AUG04) they were going their separate ways on a high, after their last album HEROES TO ZEROS gave them their best-selling disc ever, earlier this year (04).

The band blamed their lack of commercial success on the split, despite three of their albums receiving widespread critical acclaim.

Greentree says, "The Beta Band apple has over ripened and become riddled with maggots, it must fall from the tree and let it¹s seeds return to ground. Sincere thanks to everyone who has helped us along the way, see you in the Spring."

The Beta Band will bid farewell with a UK tour in the autumn (04).
