Well this is an unexpected bummer of a story to have to write. According to a lengthy post from frontman Kevin Seconds on the band’s various social media pages, seminal hardcore band 7 Seconds have decided to call it a career.
In the statement, Seconds cites ongoing medical and mental health issues concerning some of the band’s members as chief among the reasons that the band have pulled the plug just after their collective 38th birthday. The band had been slated to play Punk Rock Bowling in May and to embark on a European run of dates over the summer, but as the decision is effective immediately, those appearances are now cancelled. Read the full statement from the band below.
We’ll miss you Kevin, Steve, Bobby and Troy. Given that the band collectively came into the world only a couple months after I did, I’ve always had a special place in my heart for 7 Seconds. Be well, fellas, and thanks for 38 loud, ass-kicking years.
