We Are The Union Break Up

Posted by - 06:05 PM on 02/13/13
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 years. It means a lot to us.

If you havent yet, you can still grab our latest record, You Cant Hide The Sun, over at www.paperandplastick.com. The vinyl is now in, and all three colors look fantastic!

For anyone whos interested in what were all going to be up to in the near future, Reed is writing for a solo project and going to school full time, Brandon is working on a new project with ex-WATU member Noah Fenton and teaching bass lessons at Axis Music Academy, Jim is playing drums in Counterpunch (http://facebook.com/counterpunchrok), and Ricky is playing bass in The Hit Society (http://www.facebook.com/hitsociety).

Im going to get a sandwich.

Their first album was really good. Couldn't get into too much after that, but they put on great live shows.

Last album was so rad. It's a shame they never get to fully support it. Best of luck to these dudes.

This is a huge bummer. I'd really love to see them play a final show at Bled Fest or something, but now it seems pretty unlikely.

Bummer, I used to really like this band. Never really spent enough time with their last record and didn't get to see them on that last tour
