Hello Everyone

After nearly a decade of making fun music and amazing memories, we are announcing that the band will be going on a
hiatus.  Our last show is on Saint Patty's Day and we hope to see everyone at the show!  We had hoped 2013 would
be a year full of new experiences and adventures, and we all agree that it will be.  Just not as a band.  The reason
we are making this decision is because we all agreed that we have missed out on a lot of time watching our kids grow
up.  Chase had his daughter a few years before Moe and Tad welcomed their new additions, so he has missed out on
even more memories than the rest of the band.  Being in a band really takes up a huge amount of time.  We have
performed live on stage over 200 times, played dozens of out of state shows while on tour, away from our families for
days, sometimes weeks at a time.  We usually practiced once every week for 5 or 6 hours, and sometimes we would
practice two or three times per week.  We each spent hundreds of hours locked away in a room or office writing new
material, practicing on our own, designing flyers, web banner ads, working on the website and other social media sites,
booking shows, and countless other band related duties.  So now it's time for us to take some time to be with our
families and be the fathers that we should be.   

So we are walking away for now, but we plan on returning in about 5 or 10 years when our kids have grown up a bit and
are so busy hanging out with their friends partying and playing in bands themselves that they don't want to spend any
time with us anymore.  There is always the chance that we will never return and it ends up that the band breaks up.  
We all really hope that the hiatus doesn't become permanent, and we fully intend on returning......but who knows what
the future holds.  We promise to try and make our return sooner, rather than later, even if it ends up being brief
and we have to go back on hiatus again for a bit longer.  I guess only time will tell what happens.

We want to say thanks to everyone who has supported us in the past.  We really appreciate all of the fans that came
out to our shows, especially those shows when we played in front of a dozen people on a Tuesday night at some dive
bar.  Thanks to all of people who bought our CD's or downloaded our music.  Thanks to Mat Martini for being a part of
the band for those five years, we miss you buddy, keep making kick ass music with Reason Unknown.  Thanks to Joe
Queer for all of his help and input with our music.  Thanks to Ryan Butler for his patience and his kick ass work with
our recordings, and we want to say sorry for our last experience in the studio and want to let you know that we are
all very thankful for everything you did for us.  Thanks to Sean "40 Man" Johnson, Leesie Gurthman, Janice, Chrissy,
Garret, Brittany, Breck, James Izam, Judith Jacoby, and anyone else that we may have forgot for all of the
photography, running the merch booth, and the various help.  Thanks to Will Anderson, Donnie Johnson, and everyone
who booked us to play a show.  Thanks to any venue we had the pleasure to perform at.  Thanks to any radio station
that played our music, to the movie Madison Hall for using our music in the film, and to every label that used us on a
compilation or tribute album.  Thanks to all the bands we shared the stage with, especially The Queers, ATM, Dirty
Laundry, The Dames, Route 66 Killers, Helen's Wheels, Speed 63, Guttermouth, Sigma, Mr. Plow, The Desperate
Hours, Generiks, Reason Unknown, Adam Don't Care, Plain White T's, The Vrooom, The Meat Department, Calabrese,
Authority Zero, Forever Falling, Vices To The Grave, Fivespeed,  E.T.T.S., Idiot Kin, 2 Dimes, Sixth Year Senior,
Redfield, The Revenge, Teenage Bottlerocket, and Lesser Criminals.  Thanks to our sponsors, especially Budweiser for
promoting our shows and making such killer posters, Fender Guitars for the support, and Electro-Harmonix Effects
Pedals for taking Chase's idea to modify their signature Holy Grail reverb pedal and making it a reality and creating
The Holy Stain effects pedal.  We love you all!

Cheers - Chase, Tad and Moe
