SNFU Split
Punkbands reports: SNFU, one of Canada's longest running punk acts, is calling it quits. Founding guitarist Marc "Muc" Belke posted the following to the band's official website: I would love to thank all the people that have come to see Snfu play in the last year. We had a great time & managed to tour Canada a couple of times to support our 9th album, "In The Meantime & In Between Time". I'm truly sorry we didn't manage to get to play any other territories as we had originally planned.

It is with mixed emotions that I announce my departure from from Snfu, as it has been the biggest part of my life for almost 20 years. It's my feeling that Snfu has done everything that we had set out to do. [see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
