We Are the Union have broken up.
Weve decided to take a hiatus from active status. This does indeed mean we will not be playing Block Party in New Orleans. Usually this type of announcement would be accompanied by a longwinded rant about how unique our struggle was, how every ending is a new beginning, or something else equally stupid and bullshitty. Id rather just leave it at this:

We were a band. Maybe someday we will be again. Weve had some amazing times, and we truly appreciate those of you whove contributed to our existence. Weve never been a supercool hype band or uberpunx beardy band, so we thank each and every one of you who listened to our music over the...

Long Island's State Lines will be releasing its Tiny Engines debut album, For The Boats, on April 30th. It's one of my favorite releases of the young new year so far, so I'm thrilled that we get to premiere "Shady Existence," which is one of the coolest songs off the LP. The song features an awesome hip-hop intro (courtesy of Jovi) before launching into the band's brand of raw punk that's in the vein of Tigers Jaw and early Saves The Day. So check out the song over at the band's AP.net profile or in the replies. The band will be playing at the upcoming Today's Mixtape Festival and Stay Sweet Fest in April, so make sure you check them out there as well.
