Husband and wife team, The Like Young have decided to retire from music. The duo had this to say:
There's no big drama, no inner turmoil. The fact is, you can only take so much frustration and heartbreak before a once great love becomes something unpleasant and sad. The passion to create music is not what it once was for us.
We're no longer interested in being a part of an industry which, with a few exceptions, is often cold, cynical and senseless. The financial, mental, and physical strains are constant. The resulting victories are few. We need to make smart decisions at this point in our lives. Rather than continuing to struggle, we've decided to cut it off forever and move on. The relief (and release) that we both feel after reaching this decision is nearly impossible to convey in words.
The band released Last Secrets earlier this year.
