Two weeks ago a very sad announcement was made on Motion City Soundtrack’s website:
It has been a quiet winter for us. We’ve had some time at home after a very busy 2015. With this time, we’ve been able to think about the past, present, and future of Motion City Soundtrack. All of this thinking has lead to several conversations, and these conversations have lead us to a very bittersweet realization:
We have no idea what the future holds, but for now we are done.
Needless to say, we’re feeling all the feels – you may be as well. If so, or if you’ve ever been touched by our music, we ask you to come out and sing along with us one last time in 2016.
Please stay tuned for a very special final tour announcement on Monday. You can sign up to our email list HERE to be the first to hear the news. We really hope to see each and every one of you out there one more time.
Thanks for all the love over the years. It really means a lot to us – and it always will.
Josh, Justin, Jesse, Matt, and Tony”
There was one good bit of news in there. They’re not leaving without saying goodbye.
And another good bit of news? Tony Thaxton will be reuniting with the band to play drums on this tour.
Be sure to catch them one last time. Although I don’t quite fully believe in bands breaking up. I had to say goodbye to The Matches back in 2009 without having ever seen them live, and here I am in 2016 about to see them for the 7th-10th time this June. But that’s besides the point.
