So Long Pela
There will now be a big hole in my concert calendar. I feel fortunate to have seen these guys perform so many times, and I’ll definitely miss their shows. Here’s the scoop, in their words from 9/18/09:
It is with great sadness that we write you today. Pela’s collective journey has come to an end.
Over the past 2 years we’ve faced tremendous obstacles. We recorded an album twice, had a falling out/legal battle with our old label, fired 2 managers, had a big record deal fall through, and Billy had a hand injury followed by a foot injury.
We’ve worked tirelessly to get our music out of ourselves and into your ears. We worked endlessly to make the music and our live show the best we could. At the end of the day we had to start dealing with some realizations.
We will never be able to thank you enough for your support. For those of you that drove and flew hours just to see a show, we thank you. For those of you who wrote us and gave us the opportunity to get to know you, we thank you. For those of you who told us to keep soldiering on, we thank you. Words can’t really describe how we’re feeling about this difficult decision, but we want you to know that it’s the healthiest decision we could make.
Your lovely faces are etched into our memories. Looking at the Crowd Project videos says it all.
Please keep in touch, we’ll promise to do the same.
xoxo- Nate, Billy, Tom, and Eric
