Minneapolis pop-punk band Motion City Soundtrack have announced their breakup after 19 years.
The band’s statement reads:
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
The quintet burst onto the pop-punk scene with their 2005 debut album, I Am The Movie, and enjoyed their commercial breakthrough with 2005’s Commit This To Memory, which was produced by Blink 182’s Mark Hoppus. They released their sixth studio album, Panic Stations, on September 18th, 2015 via Epitaph.
The band will announce dates for their farewell tour on Monday.
