SATURDAY AUGUST 9TH
silent friction's last show
with oliver's army, my epiphany, the letters organize, the risk and sadie hawkins
the muse (4th ave s.) $5 for all ages
first off, i just want to say thank you guys for five amazing years. we love each and every one of you more than words can express and want to thank you for all your love and support. in the end, the three of us wanted to do different things and had different ideas of what silent friction should be. we still love each other like brothers, which is the only way we can genuinely walk away from this with smiles and amazing memories. we are still going to finish this album and post it on the site for free download. and we have one last show just for you guys. scheduled guests include raf cevallos and kelby caldwell, so we'll have the whole team there so that we can play any and all songs you guys want to hear.
this is really hard for all of us, but we think it's going to be for the best. we will be using this site to keep you updated on future projects from the three of us and please feel free to drop us a line on the message board. we always respect the ideas and opinions of our fans because you guys have always been our driving force.
what the future holds, none of us can know. it is likely that you'll see us around at shows and probably even making music together again somehow somewhere someday. this isn't a typical band breakup, as we respect each others ideas and decisions and love the music we made together. but there is a whole lot to being in a serious band and other complications have led us to the decision that now is a good time for each of us to try something new. thank you guys again for everything. the closeness we feel to the people that love our music is what this is all about.
