To our friends, family and friends:
I have no idea how to approach this and that’s never usually an issue for me. However, I think the best strategy always ends up being blunt honesty, so I’m going to go with that.
Take Cover has been a band for 4 years. We’ve put out 3 EPs, 3 singles and a full length record called “The Dreamer and The Realist”. We’ve toured every coast in America playing shows together as bandmates, business partners and brothers. We’ve stuck together through the incredible highs and lows of being in a band; sharing creative breakthroughs and playing huge shows, getting into drunken arguments and losing tours to “buy-on” bands (that’s right I said it). Without gushing any further, we all frickin’ love each other. That’s why it was so difficult to make the decision we have made. Its honestly one of the hardest things that any of us have ever had to do, but we feel that now is the right time and when you know, you know.
As of last week we have decided that Take Cover will be parting ways. The time has come where some of us feel ready to move on to the next chapter of our lives and we had to be honest with ourselves and each other and accept it. Although we are disbanding as Take Cover, I want to assure everyone that this is not the end of music for any of us by any means. It’s in our blood and its not going anywhere.
We want to say thank you to every single person who has ever bought a cd, showed a friend our music or came to a show. We are so proud of everything that we’ve accomplished together and will remember this part of our lives forever. We have some of the most dedicated and passionate fans in the world. I’m still completely blown away and humbled every time I see someone with a tattoo of Take Cover lyrics. Seriously, you guys don’t know what that means to us.
We also want to thank the AMAZING bands and people we’ve had the honor of knowing from all over the country.
Every tour and opportunity we’ve ever received has been a result of the kindness of these awesome people: You, Me and Everyone We Know, Jordan Schmidt, Quietdrive, Chad Snell, Sing it Loud, Claudio Rivera, Motion City Soundtrack, Jamestown Story, Man Overboard, The Higher, Queens Club, Patent Pending, The Movement, No Wings to Speak Of, Four Letter Lie, Mathletes, Every Avenue, Hit the Lights, Famous Like You, Skies Alive, All The Right Moves, The Venetia Fair, The Academy Is..
We are sad to bring this news but very excited about the future. Please come celebrate our band with us at our last two shows. Again, we want to thank you for the last 4 years, we won’t ever forget them.
