After 13 years as a band, The Prozacs have decided to call it a day, putting out one final release for pop-punk fans to enjoy – a compilation of songs from splits and comps the band appeared on entitled Is This How It Ends?, which you can stream below and purchase on Bandcamp.
Here’s what frontman J Prozac had to say about the band’s decision to throw in the towel:
Hey, Hey punk rockers! So here is the OFFICIAL news. As of July 2014, The Prozacs will be hanging it up. After 13 years of ups & downs, tours & records, friends and enemies, more members than you can shake a stick at…and my consistent musical devotion being poured into The Prozacs…it feels like the right spot to drop a bookmark. The past few years have been incredibly trying in keeping things going…and although I have personally been moving right along, The Prozacs as a whole have had numerous road blocks and challenges causing my musical attention to take several new and different directions. I have finally built the courage to let go of many things I have been holding onto, trying to make work, in order to to put my heart and passion into the new projects, new music, honestly….without pulling back and forth with The Prozacs. It has been very difficult, emotional, stressful…and full of decisions I have not wanted to make, but necessary…in order to do what\’s best for myself, my family and those close to me…in order to continue doing what I love. I have had tremendous support from a wide range of friends, family, band members, fans and labels over the years. I can never thank you all enough! This is not an ending…but a continuation to new adventures! I personally want to thank Matty Prozac, Jimmy Craig, Adam Taylor, Sean Watson and Colin Vicalvi for their multiple years and deep rooted impressions an this band and these songs, as well as every other member that brought in their piece for however long it may have been. I wish Matty Prozac and Paul Basile of the current line up the best of wishes with whatever life brings. There are a couple releases and a music video in the works that will tie up some loose ends, and end cap the bands recorded history! I am very excited, moving forward with The Stiletto’s, The Sonic Diffusers and J Prozac! I’ll be releasing info on each as they grow into their own! 3 chords to the future! Rock -J Prozac
The Prozacs formed in 2001, and have released numerous full-lengths, EPs, and compilation albums since. A portion of the band’s discography is available for streaming on their Bandcamp page.
