Die kanadischen Melodic Hardcoreler MEANS haben sich aufgelöst. Hier das Statement:
"On October 26th we will be packing into the van one last time for a cross-Canada headlining tour. Here is how the tour breaks down: 28 Shows (16 Ontario and Eastern Canada Dates, 5 US Dates, 7 Western Canada Dates). For the Eastern Canada portion Means will be a part of the Underground Operations UNITY TOUR that features KTO and guests, while the final Western Canada shows will be alongside our friends in Horizons. These will be our final shows together, and Means will be disbanding after a final performance scheduled for November 29th in Regina, SK.
"What began as new friends playing music together in a small northern Manitoba town is now nearly seven years later, a cloud of experiences upon which we look with both gratitude and pride. Grateful to have been a part of this band, through such formative years of life, all while having the opportunity to share in something meaningful to each of us; Music. For the outlet of this particular sound, which we cherish and trust, and for those of you who shared these years and become the community that surrounds us, we are ever grateful. Thank you for the camaraderie that we share and for your sincerity and spirit.
"As a band, we are proud of the miles behind us and the work ethic we maintained even though nothing-is-perfect. We are proud that we were a band that was able to laugh with one another and at ourselves along the way, often to the point of vomiting, crying, soiling etc., or all-of-the-above. Happy for all the pathetic inside jokes that for good reason mean nothing to anyone but us. Finally, we are proud of one another and the people we are becoming; trusting that through the experience of playing in this band we are growing to be more compassionate and understanding individuals.
"We would like to thank Underground Operations, Facedown Records, Ian at Blackbox, Kevin Gales, Rosesdead, Everynewday, Misery Signals and Life in your way; for your guidance, inspiration, good faith and friendship throughout the life of this band.
"In closing, we would like to say that though it is rare when something ends, means will finish this winter on good terms and we are happy to announce the upcoming month long tour to celebrate together."
