On A Pale Horse Calls It Quits

Iowa's On A Pale Horse have decided to call it quits. Their vocalist, Aaron Peltz, provides the following explaination:

"I know an explanation of the upcoming split of On A Pale Horse is overdue so I'll try to explain the best I can. This is going to be from my point of view though and why I wanted to hang up the vocal chords for good. Hopefully everyone else in the band can inform you of what there plans are in the future."

"I've been doing this music thing pretty full-on for 13 years ever since I got out of the Marines. That was my plan after getting out of the service to form a band, play shows, make records, make it big. I came closer to that dream than I ever imagined and got to tour with heroes of mine. After that came to a close, On A Pale Horse came along and asked me to ride along. Bummed out from the demise of my former band I gladly tried out and got the gig. 3 records later, lots of shows, and 5 years later it comes to a close for me. I turned 37 this year and have missed out on a lot of family moments that I can never get back. It's just time to focus on my family and not miss dance recitals for my daughter for a show that only 15 people will show up for in Nowhereville, Wi."

"I had a lot of fun and have life long friends in OAPH and this is the last band that I'll be in. Since dealing with so much of the music business side of things I really lost my love of music and I want to get back to being a fan. I miss that."

"Thanks to all of the fans, supporters, and venues that helped us along the way."
