This is sad news. The band Call To Preserve are calling it a day, and will play a final farewell tour for people who want “can come see us for the last time.”
In an official statement, the band said that it was time to throw in the towel. “For the past year or so we’ve done our best to keeping functioning as a band despite losing members and having remaining members cut back their involvement. Now all of us are being pulled in different directions and our aspirations for our future have expanded much further than being on tour all the time. With some of us moving away, going back to school or starting careers, we just can’t sacrifice our time to this band like we used to. It would be a disservice to ourselves to do CTP half heartedly, so instead we want to go out on a high note and enjoy our last few months as a band.”
The band will be playing its last West Coast show this April as part of the Facedown Fest 2011 on April 8 and April 9 at the Glasshouse in Pomona, California, and in the coming months, the band will announce its last tour dates, “which will include a stop at Cornerstone Festival. Our last show will be near the end of July this summer in Melbourne, Florida. More details will be announced soon.”
The band is also working on a few new songs for a 7-inch that’ll drop this summer.
“We never thought that this band would get as far as it did. We never thought we’d have the chance to travel so much and tour with some of our favorite bands and make such amazing friends from all over the world. We are eternally grateful for the chance we were given to play music and actually have people listen.”
