Hostage Calm announce sudden breakup

For all intents and purposes, here’s one that seems to have come from left field…Connecticut’s Hostage Calm are no more. Here’s the official statement from the band, which was issued via their Facebook page:

Hostage Calm has broken up. It’s too soon, it’s too young, and it hurts too much.

All planned shows are canceled. We are still figuring out if and when there will be any final shows.

I want to personally thank every one of you who supported us over the years. You shared so much more with us than you’ll ever know. From our music to our politics, you helped make a bunch of Wallingford kids’ foolish dreams a reality. It was the great privilege of our young lives.

To all of you who’ve connected with us, who’ve grown with us, who’ve loved, changed, cried, lived with us – and to all of you who will yet – Just know that we loved what we did, and we could never have done it alone. “I’ve been a hero, and I’ve been a fool. And all of it for you.”

Yours Forever,
Hostage Calm
