Motion City Soundtrack announce break up
'For now we are done,' the band said in a statement.
Everything is not alright: Warped Tour staple Motion City Soundtrack announced Friday that they’re breaking up.
“We have no idea what the future holds, but for now we are done,” the quintet said in a note on their website. “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.”
The band debuted with I Am the Movie in 2003, and broke through with 2005’s Commit This to Memory. The album, produced by Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus, features irresistibly catchy, pop-punk tracks about darker topics like mental illness and substance abuse, including their most well known single, “Everything is Alright.”
Although Motion City Soundtrack’s announcement signals the end, they’re still giving fans one last hurrah by going on a yet-to-be-announced final tour. “We really hope to see each and every one of you out there one more time,” they wrote. “Thanks for all the love over the years. It really means a lot to us — and it always will.”
