The self-described white guilt art project Das Racist announced their break up in a rather jumbled sort of way. Over the weekend, only one member of the three person outfit showed up at Munich’s On3 Festival where they were expected to perform. This led to Heems delivering the news to Munich’s audience first in the words, “You guys wanna know the secret? All right, so I’m going to do some Das Racist songs, but Das Racist is breaking up and we’re not a band anymore.”
Apparently the group broke up a while ago when Kool A.D. tweeted, “for the record i quit das racist 2 months ago and was asked by our manager not to announce it yet. apparently @himanshu wanted to do it tho.”
We’re sad to see them go but we’re sure each member will be putting out more music in the future.
