Well, this came out of nowhere. This morning, Motion City Soundtrack posted a new blog to their website announcing their disbandment and forthcoming farewell tour. You can read the write-up from the band below:
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 list HERE 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.
Josh, Justin, Jesse, Matt, and Tony
It’s a shocking announcement, coming just six months after the release of their latest album, Panic Stations. The band will be sorely missed – but there will certainly be excitement surrounding their upcoming farewell tour.
