From A Second Story Window breaks up
Friday, August 29, 2008 7:23 PM PT
As recent rumors have suggested, From A Second Story Window has indeed called it quits. Formed in 2002, the group has put out several releases through Black Market Activies. The following statement has been issued:
"The past several years for us as From A Second Story Window have been quite a roller coaster ride. We have watched trends come and go, looked on as people grew in and out of an ever undulating "scene", and had the chance to watch something we love, our music, grow into an expression we can all truly be proud of. However, the life in a band is much like those very roads we travel down on every tour; hills leading up, followed by valley's dipping downward towards vast, level planes where things begin to feel stagnant and a bit too calm. Then around every corner is a new fad or statement that you can either grow with or simply step aside and let it be what it is, knowing that you are no longer connected at all anymore. For us, with this changing musical market and its inhabitants, it is simply our time to step aside and let the flow continue on without us. It is time for us to venture down new avenues of creativity and to find new things to enrich our lives fully. From A Second Story Window was something that gave us all hope and pride in our small part of the musical world, but with economical woe's pulling us down, and changes in attitude towards the entire movement of "heavy" music, it just seems right to call it quits and move on in our own ways.
"Please accept our deepest thanks to everyone out there who has ever helped us out, made it to our shows, partied with us afterwords (or before, ha ha), and most importantly listened to our music and truly cared about it as much as we did and still do. This is not an end for us as musical people, just an end for us as a group called From A Second Story Window, so be looking for little projects that any of us may do for fun in the future. Again, this entire trip has been a roller coaster ride, and I know that none of us are put out what-so-ever that we bought tickets and got in line! Thanks again to everyone out there, we've had a blast!"

Yeah... translation: metalcore has ran it's course, and we're not creative enough to create music as simple enough as that, so it's time we just give it up before it becomes that obvious.
8/29/2008 7:52:01 PM

8/30/2008 7:57:47 PM
metalcore has ran it's course, and we're not creative enough to create music as simple enough as that, so it's time we just give it up before it becomes that obvious. never liked anything besides Omitted... soooo good call on behalf of FASSW
8/31/2008 1:22:46 AM
it was only a matter of time.
8/31/2008 1:23:40 AM
Good! Made a good EP, conformed to the trends and made two shitty albums. Take your own advice
