COUNTERFEIT Split Up; Jamie Campbell Bower Launches New Solo Project

Jamie Campbell Bower confirms the end of COUNTERFEIT – and the beginning of his solo project…

Promising London punks COUNTERFEIT. have sadly just called it a day, with frontman Jamie Campbell Bower announcing that he’ll instead now be venturing off into the solo world. 

In a statement posted on social media, Jamie revealed that coronavirus seemingly played a part in the end of the band, with members letting him know in lockdown that they no longer wish to participate in either this project or live music in general”. Understandably, the singer says that he is disappointed by this news” – but instead will now be releasing music and touring with his own project, Jamie Bower.

I did not imagine myself ever having to write this letter to you all,” reads the full statement from Jamie. But here we are. It is with deepest sympathies that I must announce that Counterfeit as a band have entered into the shadows of past projects. During lockdown and COVID I received a number of phone calls from members of the band who stated that they no longer wish to participate in either this project or live music in general. I was, like you, disappointed by this news. As such I have come to the decision that it is time to lay Counterfeit to rest.

I started this project alone in my living room and it seems fitting that, that is where we say goodbye to it. In time all things must die. But from the ashes we must rise which is why I am delighted to tell you that I will be continuing to make music and tour the world for and with you all under Jamie Bower, we rise again and I am very excited to announce the first offering from this new project. In the shadows I have always dwelled and this project is an offering from there. As our dear friend Gerard once said, Throw on the black dress mix in with the lot.’ Like summer to winter seasons change but my friends the song remains.

Come join me. Take my hand. Do not be afraid of the dark. It is time. Jamie.”
