Indianapolis electronic funk trio Turbo Suit has announced they will break up. The last live show for the band formerly known as Cosby Sweater will take place at the upcoming Electric Forest music festival.
Billed as “Turbo Suit & Friends” the Electric Forest set will take place on Saturday, June 25 at the Double JJ Ranch in Rothbury, Michigan. Formed in 2012, the trio of David Embry, Nicholas Gerlach and Jeff Peterson shared the following message regarding their decision to stop Turbo Suit:
Over the last 4 years, we have had the opportunity to do some amazing things. We started this project with no intentions of ever going as far as we did with our little group. We’ve played countless festivals, venues that we could only dream of playing, and have opened for bands that we’ve looked up to for years. We made lots of friends and fans over the years and are so grateful for all the opportunities that we were given to make you forget about this crazy world we live in, even if for just an hour or two.
Without going on and on and dragging this whole thing out, we would like to announce that next week at Electric Forest will be our last show. So please, let us not be sad that this is ending, but celebrate that it even happened in the first place. Thank you guys so much for letting us do what we do. We love you.
