Why the Divorce Are Breaking Up

posted by on April 18 at 15:32 PM

I posted this morning that the Divorce are breaking up, and I popped them a message asking why. Here’s what I got back:

seriously though, it’s been seven years, and we feel that this project has been on a creative and emotional plateau for long enough that the writing is on the wall. it’s nothing that we feel bitter or upset about. we’ve simply reached the natural end of the project. we’re all still the best of friends, and will continue with individual projects for certain, but ‘the divorce’, as an entity, no longer felt like the most valid outlet for us. pretty simple, i guess. no real drama. thanks for writing about it though! it’s pretty nice to know that people care.

and of course, we’re playing a big blow-out/sendoff show in order to wrap this thing up in style.

love always,
shane

Well, that’s that then!

this is sad news. what an exciting band to watch. they always look like they're having a blast when they're playing. a bunch of bad-ass performers.

to the divorce -- thanks for the 2 good albums (nice art work on the gifted program too). you guys are awesome. good luck in the future.

this was the 3rd time i got shakey and kinda weepy after hearing a band of this caliber was breaking up. the first time was super drag, and the second was vendetta red. i will always have the memories of tours and drinks w/ these guys. amazing songs, and amazing friends.
