After being a band for nearly 20 years, Motion City Soundtrack are going on an indefinite hiatus.
“We have no idea what the future holds,” they wrote in a farewell statement, “but for now we are done.”
They will announce their final tour this coming Monday, March 14. You can read their farewell statement in full below.
MCS released their latest studio album, Panic Stations, in 2015.
It has been a quiet winter for us. We’ve had some time at home after a very busy 2015. With this time, we’ve been able to think about the past, present, and future of Motion City Soundtrack. All of this thinking has lead to several conversations, and these conversations have lead us to a very bittersweet realization:
We have no idea what the future holds, but for now we are done.
Needless to say, we’re feeling all the feels – you may be as well. If so, or if you’ve ever been touched by our music, we ask you to come out and sing along with us one last time in 2016.
Please stay tuned for a very special final tour announcement on Monday. You can sign up to our email/mailing list via our Facebook page to be the first to hear the news. We really hope to see each and every one of you out there one more time.
Thanks for all the love over the years. It really means a lot to us – and it always will.”
