Massachusetts folk-punk group imadethismistake have just announced that they will be calling it quits after their upcoming tour. The band is scheduled to play in the UK over the summer, and they have stated this will be their last string of shows before they disband. Here’s what frontman Kylewilliam Campol had to say about his future,
“I’m working on a retrospective zine that’s going to have lyrics and guitar tabs for every song, stories behind the songs, and that will come with 3 songs I wrote before I decided to give up the band. Those are recorded and just chilling until the zine comes out. Those are the final plans for the band. It’s going to be a nice final goodbye zine, followed by the final tour next year. It’s going to be great.”

“Well it’s been ten years. I started this band when I was 13; I’m 23 now. So it’s been the most constant relationship in the entirety of my existence pretty much. I’ve had this band longer than I’ve been able to drive so being able to look back and see that I’ve done three full lengths, a ton of EPs and over a thousand tour dates it’s been a really fun, beautiful experience. But it’s come to a point where I feel like I’m at a different place in my life and I’ve got different priorities.
The two main reasons are that I’ve been doing it for so long and the second is I feel like Bow and Quiver, the last record we put out, was exactly what I wanted to write and say. And imadethismistake has always been very based off what’s going on with me personally. My state of mind, how I’m feeling at the time, and things have gone in the past that I need to express. It’s been a open diary band and I’m really comfortable with the level I’m at now and I’m excited to move on to different projects and priorities.”
