From Afar has checked in with the following announcement about deciding to pack it in and call it a day:
"So, it's been a while... But to cut a long story short, this post marks an indefinite hiatus for From Afar.
"We are totally gutted to be calling it a day, but for many reasons (lack of money, and individual plans for the future being the main two) we can no longer put in the time required to take a band like this to a further level.
"Thank you so much to any of you who have supported us, whether from the beginning or if you're new to our world! We've had a blast for a few years, despite our member changes and general difficulty in finding our feet.
"We will continue to write music together in our spare time, nothing will change there. Maybe in the future we will have another stab and come back under a different name, with some ball/ovary crushingly badass riff filled tunes for your listening pleasure.
"In the meantime, it's peace out from us!" More...

It is with tremendous pain that we announce the departure of one of the founding members of the band, however this decision has been reached with no animosity as people's interest and priorities lay in different places.
