After recruiting a new bassist earlier this month, The May 4th Massacre has issued the following announcement about deciding to call it a day:
"It takes a long time to find who you really are. An even longer time to find what a group of collective creative individuals should be. This band has gone through a lot of changes over the years, and always endured, but at some point you have to destroy what you’ve built so you can create something more.
"We’re not the same people we were when this band was started and we don’t make the same music anymore. That being said The May 4th Massacre is no more. We will be taking time off to write and work on things we feel we need to musically as well as personally. The members will return to music in new forms.
"The May 4th Massacre will perform on New Year’s Eve with Boysetsfire at the note in West Chester and then we will be playing a final show in Delaware soon after TBA. All of the support over the years has meant the world to us, and we hope to see all of you there."
