Sugar Glyder are calling it quits.
After 10 years of music and memories we are sad to say that Sugar Glyder the band is calling it a decade. All good things come to an end but the best parts last forever. We will never forget this experience that you’ve all given us.

You may not realize it but all of this was made possible by your love and kindness. Without that we’d just be a bunch of people making noise.

It is with proud heads and heavy hearts that we will all move forward in life now.

Eternal thanks to you all for your support throughout the years. We sincerely hope we’ve been able to make the most lasting and positive impression on you, it’s the least we could do to return...
