Scottish band Niteworks have announced they will be playing their final gigs together next year.

The band was formed in Skye by school friends Allan MacDonald, Christopher Nicolson, Innes Strachan and Ruairidh Graham in 2007.

Since then, they have gone on to perform all across the UK and Europe as well as performing at the Belladrum music festival.

The band’s music has also been played during Edinburgh’s Hogmanay fireworks display.

The band made the announcement on their website with a statement that read: “It’s with very heavy hearts that we announce 2024 will be Niteworks’ final year as a band.

“We started this band as teenagers nearly 17 years ago, four school friends looking to make some music and have a bit of fun. In our wildest dreams we could never have imagined where it would take us and what we would achieve along the way – we’ve had an absolute blast!

“However this has never been a full-time venture for us, and we’ve now reached a point in our lives where we have a few more responsibilities than when we started.

“We’ll be doing a small run of select shows in 2024 and we would love to see as many of you at them as possible, for one more dance!

“There are a huge amount of people to thank, but for now we’ll just say thank you to you, the fans. Without your incredible support, none of this would ever have been possible.”

The band’s final show will take place on Saturday, June 8, at The Reeling 2024 in Rouken Glen Park in Glasgow.
