Accompanied by the news, the bands also premiered their brand new single ‘Future Distant History’ which you can stream here. The Other Stars issued the following statement on the break up via the band’s facebook page:
“I’m sorry to say that we are no longer going to be a band. It was a really tough decision to make, but I think it’s what’s best for all of us. It stopped being fun or enjoyable, and when those are the reasons that you’re writing and playing music, it loses its purpose. It was a mutual agreement between everyone and there are no hard feelings and life will surely go on.
A large part of no longer being able to continue in the band, for me, is due to mental health issues that I’ve been struggling with for a long time, which I’ve dealt with in all the wrong ways. Recently I decided that I’d like to help others like me, so I’ve started a non-profit organization to help people struggling with mental health disorders called the Organization for the Pursuit of Happiness. I would really appreciate if everyone could follow the page and tell others about it. Also if anyone would like to help / get involved it would be welcome and appreciated.
Joe Urban and the label are being kind enough to donate 10% of the album sales to the organization.“
