For those of you with a constant, dull, ache of nostalgia in the pit of your stomach, then you may find it disheartening that Motion City Soundtrack, the pop-punk rock stars from the early 00's, are embarking on their final tour ever...
The So Long, Farewell Tour
has just kicked off and is supported by some other noteworthy names like, A Great Big Pile of Leaves, The Spill Canvas, Microwave and By Surprise. The band will be on the road through the month of June, doing keyboard hand stands and celebrating a good run with friends, family and all of their biggest fans.
The band wrote an open letter addressed to "friends" and encourage anyone who has been affected by their music over the years, to make it out to one of their shows. The band will be wrapping up the tour in their hometown of Minneapolis, Minnesota, on June 24th.
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 led to several conversations, and these conversations have led us to a very bittersweet realization:
We have no idea what the future holds, but for now we are done.
Needless to say, were 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"
