Chattanooga, TN's Across Five Aprils are calling it quits. The band announced:
I could spend all day on here telling you why A5A is calling it quits but the simple truth is we've all just gotten to a point where we have chosen to move on, and we wouldn't have changed our experience with A5A for anything in the world. A5A got to make some of our biggest dreams come true. We got to play with our favorite bands and we befriended our heroes and had the times of our lives. We have become world travelers visiting and playing in Mexico, Canada, Japan, Mainland Europe, UK, Scandinavia, and every state in the continental 48. It truly has been a wild and amazing ride.And we have gotten to write and perform music that was uncompramized and of our own convictions. We never conformed we never did anything musicaly except exactly what we chose. Thank you once again for letting us have this amazing opportunity.
While I cant take the time to tell you exactly why this is happening I can take some time and tell you what reasons are not true to dispel some common rumors that some inquiring minds will undoubtedly wish to now. We have not been dropped from VICTORY RECORDS, contrary to what the PRP reported. We are however not a CURRENT ARTIST because we have made the arrangements with VICTORY to disband. We want to thank TONY and VICTORY for their constant support in everything we did. I can also tell you we did not have a knock down drag out fight internally or with any other band. We are all still friends and will continue to stay close for the rest of our lives.
The band also announced their final tour.
