We are very sad to say that today, Sent By Ravens have announced their indefinite hiatus as a band. Earlier this year, the band released their sophomore full length with Tooth & Nail Records, which to me, was such a fabulous album and it’s sad to see a band such as this decide to stop.
According to the band’s full statement, which you can read below the jump, they are going to play out the remainder of their shows this year but those will be their final shows. Check below and see what the band had to say to their fans about the hiatus.
Hey friends. Hope you guys are having a great summer and are continually pursuing something you’re passionate about. We’ve been doing just that for the past 6 years and have enjoyed every minute of it. After 6 awesome years, we’ve decided to take an extended hiatus. We have all been working really hard at this band for quite some time. Frequently, when you’re focused wholeheartedly on a goal, you miss the most important things in life. We are looking forward to spending some much needed time with our families and friends, building on those relationships that truly make our hearts happy. In the meantime, keep an eye out for other projects as I’m sure each of us will continue to pursue something with music. We love you guys and thank you for supporting us this far and in the exciting times that are ahead of each one of us. We’re going to be playing our final shows for the foreseeable future in August (posted below). This band would not be possible without our fans. You’ve kept us alive and passionate for the past 6 years. Again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
