Minnesota pop-and-kinda-punk band Sing It Loud have announced that they’re breaking up. The band released their debut full-length, Everything Collide on Epitaph earlier this year.
The band is citing no drama or bad blood between the members, but simply their desire to move on from the band. Check out the full statement from the band here. They’ve scheduled a farewell shows on October 9 in Minneapolis.
After three years of playing music together, we (Pat, Ben, Nate, Chris and Kieren) have decided to step away from Sing It Loud. We would like to thank everyone who has supported us through this amazing part of our lives. We have been given a rare opportunity to do something many people never get the chance to do, and for that we are eternally grateful. There is no drama or bad blood between any of us, we are all going out together the same way we came into this- as friends. There comes a time in everyone’s life when they need to make choices and steps towards what will make them happy, and we are all ready to take those steps in our lives. We have grown so much from this, and are ready for the next chapter in our lives. This will not be the last you hear from any of us. We all plan on continuing with our musical careers, so we hope the amazing support from Sing It Loud fans will continue as we do. A series of final shows will be announced soon, so be on the look out for those and for what we do next. Thank you all for enriching our lives and giving us the chance to share our music with you. We could not be more content with what we have accomplished.
Kieren, Pat, Ben, Nate, Chris
