Defenders of pop-punk MAN OVERBOARD have revealed they will be going on an indefinite hiatus.
The whiny boilerplate boredom-merchants announced the break via their official website with a run of farewell shows across the U.S, adding the following statement to address all nine of their hoodie-wearing sex-offender-esque mantween fans:
”We have spent the last 7+ years tirelessly building Man Overboard into something that we all love and are proud of, from booking our first tours and hand numbered copies of the Hung Up On Nothing EP to touring the world and making albums with producers we never thought we’d meet. We put our hearts and souls into this band because it’s something we believe in. Whether we were being detained in a desolate Russian train station after illegally trying cross the border to the Ukraine or walking off stage after a sold out show, our friendship and love for everything this band has afforded us is what makes us want to be a part of Man Overboard forever. This band has been and will always be something that we hold close to our hearts, not only because it has transformed and shaped us as people but because of how we know how it has affected other people’s lives, be it in a large or small way. Joe Strummer said “Without people you’re nothing” and we know that the support of our friends, families and fans helped guide us to where we are today. Our current plans are very few and will likely remain that way for a while. Don’t read into it. Don’t think it’s something it’s not. This Spring we will be playing eight shows in the United States. Farewell for now”.
Social media has gone positively mild with the news, with many people expressing a sense of acknowledgment and asking whether the violently ordinary band will be back with some more decade-late pop punk any time in the near future.
