Hostage Calm Call It Quits
Published Oct 08, 2014After seven years and four albums together, Connecticut melodic punk act Hostage Calm have called it quits.
The five-piece group didn't give any specific reason for disbanding, but they don't exactly seem stoked on the split. Instead, they shared a Facebook post where they wrote "It's too soon, it's too young, and it hurts too much."
Here's their statement in full:
Hostage Calm has broken up. It's too soon, it's too young, and it hurts too much.
All planned shows are canceled. We are still figuring out if and when there will be any final shows.
I want to personally thank every one of you who supported us over the years. You shared so much more with us than you'll ever know. From our music to our politics, you helped make a bunch of Wallingford kids' foolish dreams a reality. It was the great privilege of our young lives.
To all of you who've connected with us, who've grown with us, who've loved, changed, cried, lived with us — and to all of you who will yet — Just know that we loved what we did, and we could never have done it alone. "I've been a hero, and I've been a fool. And all of it for you."
Hostage Calm released their fourth studio album, Die On Stage, via Run for Cover Records last month.
