R.I.P. – O Pioneers!!! calls it quits

Houston folk-punk band, O Pioneers!!!,  have announced that after 7 years together they are calling it quits. In a recent interview, frontman Eric Soloman stated:

“O Pioneers!!! should have ended a long time ago. I started this band in the fall of 2004, and it’s slowly changed and migrated into what it is today, based off of the millions of people that have been in this band. I got tired of trying to con people into playing songs that they liked, or may have been a fan of, but ultimately they didn’t have a connection with, besides something that was at face value.”

Don’t think you’ve heard the last from Soloman though. He has stated that his new band, Black Clouds, will be recording a split LP with Tigers Jaw on Run For Cover Records.
