No Truce Breaks Up and Posts Album for Free Download

California's No Truce has decided to call it quits. The band issues the following message regarding the decision:

"After nearly 4 years as a band, we have decided to call it quits."

"Our last show is planned on August 14, at the Castle in Soledad. A flier will be up soon with all of the bands and info, so hold off on asking questions about it."

"Our full length is available for download at [this location]"

"I don't know when lyrics will be posted, hopefully Rodney will post them in another blog soon. Hopefully artwork can somehow be posted too. There are a lot of reasons for the band breaking up."

"First of all, we have been a band for almost 4 years. We've done 8 tours, including a Full U.S., and have gotten sick of each other. We are all good friends, but try spending weeks at a time with the same group of people in an enclosed space and you'll understand."

"We all have other paths to pursue in life that require considerable time and attention, to the point where we no longer have the time to take this band seriously. Rather than putting it on the back burner (as we have been doing for the past few months) indefinitely, we have decided to break up. Herb has begun his career in tattooing(visit http://www.myspace.com/xherbxheadwalkx to check out his work), Tommy is finishing a degree at U.C. Santa Cruz, I will most likely attend nursing school in January, and who the hell knows what Rodney is up to in King City. In short, we are all going in different directions."

"I realized one day calling everyone about band practice that I had to dial a different area code to get a hold of everyone. Physical distance is another annoying obstacle to practicing or doing anything together."

"When your band has been around for 4 years, you have either 'made it' or not. It's not like our goal was ever to be MTV superstars, but working your ass off as a band for a long time with very little recognition gets old. It's just a fact of life that some bands blow up and some just don't, and our band falls into the much larger category of the latter."

I can understand their point, no matter how tenacious you are and how long you stick at something there are only 2 things that float, cream and sh**. You either have to be a cut above, or so awful that people mistake it for talent. For those in the middle it.... well .... at least they got their name on a cupboard full of T-Shirts.
