Iím not exactly sure how to start this in a creative manner so I guess the best strategy is to just jump into it. Remember August has broken up. To some of you, this may come as a big surprise but to those closest to us, this is something that has been a long time coming. As anybody in a band will tell you, being a part of a group is no different than being in any type of serious relationship. There are compromises, disagreements, joys, heartaches and challenges. Yet, in every relationship one must question whether the best times lie ahead or in the past. Collectively, I think we realize that the greatest times for Remember August are in the past, and on that note, we realize it is unhealthy to continue with something simply because it is easier than letting go.
Just as countless other bands will say upon breaking up, this really did become so much greater and stronger than we could have ever imagined. From adding drum parts to the Storybook Ending songs, to playing the Warped Tour, our dream, on four separate occasions, this band went from a dream to a reality very quickly. So quickly, in fact, that we may have compromised our own happiness for aspirations of something more. We started this band because we loved making music and wanted to be onstage and I feel that in some respects, we forgot this along the way. Who we are as people in August of 2007 is far different from who we were as people in August of 2004. However, with that being said, the one thing that remains constant is how much this band means to us all. Undoubtedly, that is the main reason we are making this decision now, rather than five years from now. In our hearts and minds, we want this band to be inseparably linked with the greatest times of our young lives. Thatís what it was.
We will forever associate this band with scream along choruses, adrenaline soaked live shows, lifelong friendships and something that was greater than the sum of its parts. We hope you will do the same.
