The Story Ends - My Life Story call it a day

Lovers of orchestral pop will be sad to hear that My Life Story have decided to bring the curtain down on their reunion shows and finally call it a day.  However they are going out with a bang with one final show at the Shepherds Bush Empire on the 31st May.

[Update: Listen to our interview with Jake Shillingford]

Singer Jake Shillingford said:
"After 20 amazing years. We felt it was time to bow out with one last big theatre show. A final thanks to our utterly amazing and unhealthily loyal and devoted fans. Bring your memories, bring your laughter, dress up to the nines, and party like its 1994!"
My Life Story were a huge favourite on the live circuit with their flamboyant shows and loyal following, whilst enjoying a string of chart hits throughout the 90s.
Their 3 albums produced 6 Top 40 hits, including '12 Reasons Why I Love Her', 'Strumpet' and 'Sparkle', described by Melody Maker at the time as …satisfying escapism.  They even featured in last month's BBC poll for the best Britpop anthems, coming in at number 17 with '12 Reasons'.
My Life Story returned in 2006, after a six-year hiatus, with a ‘best of’ album entitled Sex & Violins. This was followed by Megaphone Theology (B-sides & Rarities). They have since performed packed-out shows at The Astoria, O2Shepherds Bush Empire and Koko.
We'll be putting on a special My Life Story edition of our show on the 28th May but why not get along to their final show? Details below:
