The Departure

U.K. art-rock outfit the Departure originates from the provincial town of Northampton, and was formed at the end of 2003 by David Jones (vocals), Sam Harvey (guitar), Lee Irons (guitar/vocals), Ben Winton (bass), and Andy Hobson (drums). They made their live debut in their native Northampton at the start of the following year, before making a brief trip to London to record a demo and try to secure a recording contract. The quintet’s similarity to fashionable U.S. electro pop bands such as the Killers and the Bravery no doubt helped them obtain a contract with the major label Parlophone Records. Support slots with the Killers and Graham Coxon helped the Departure hone their raw live act, and by the autumn they had secured enough of a following to push their debut single "All Mapped Out" into the U.K. Top 30. The band continued touring, including a number of well-received festival slots, while continuing to work on their debut album. The singles "Lump in My Throat" and "Be My Enemy" preceded the release of Dirty Words in summer 2005. The album’s slick, '80s-inspired fusion of guitar rock and electro pop was generally impressive, although lacking in stand-out tracks to help the band rise above the glut of other bands mining a similar vein.

Anyway, their 2008 album, Inventions released some singles. But it's unclear whether it will ever be released.

Sorry about all the posts, but there's a 500 character limit.

however, surfing around their websites, I have come across news that David Jones, the newer lead singer, and a new guy are working on a new album. Also according to David Jones the band is going to reform "as a new band".
But I don't know if that's going to include all the old members or not. Additionally , it's pretty safe to say Lee Irons (vocalist on "Dirty Words") isn't coming back. But don't worry, considering how his side project sounds, he wasn't the creative vision behind the departure.

"The Departure was an English rock band from Northampton, formed in January 2004. Their debut album, Dirty Words, was released 13 June 2005. A second album was expected to be released in early 2008, but it never saw the light. The band confirmed their split on 30 January 2008, on their myspace page, and stated that they intended to continue to record under another name. The reason they gave was that their label dropped them."

Wish there was some background information about this band. They have good breakdowns with their riffs & vocals. "Be My Enemy" is fiesty. RawR. Many nights I find myself relating to the sentiments. =)
