Race The Sun will be calling it a day after their final tour in November. You can read a message from the band below.
I never thought that this would be the final chapter nor the end of the long journey for us, but just like every lifespan out there, Race The Sun has been on life support long enough to know that it..s time to say goodbye and close the eyes. We have been on fire for four years now. Our hearts drenched in ambition fuelled us to become the tour machines we are today. Before anyone gets the wrong idea of what happened, let me tell you in short summary why we made this choice. From the start, we were all best friends, trying to live the dream of writing and sharing the music that moved us just as much as the other. We promised to take this as far as it will go, to make the most of this short life, to prove the impossible to be possible. It is a miracle how far we have come but it..s also heartbreaking to know that this is the end of the road for us. I cannot thank everyone enough for supporting us through all these years. From those who let us crash on their floors, fed us, bought our cds and merch, to the kids who made countless donations when we were broke down without a cent in our name. Our choice doesn’t reflect on how hard the life was but more on the chemistry that has kept this band at full throttle. With Jason and Aaron leaving this time around, a huge chunk was ripped out of the spirit of RTS. We even went through a period of finding new members, but in our hearts we knew it wouldn’t be the same like the last line up. I want to sincerely thank those who believed in us, encouraged us, and watched us grow as a unit over time. You all are what made us who we are today. We learned a great deal of the power of friendship as well as the musicianship. Again it breaks my heart to say a final farewell but we all feel that this is the best time to move on with our lives and keep all the cherished memories preserved. To give closure for everyone, including ourselves, we will be doing one final tour in November right before Thanksgiving; starting in Texas and heading east again, ending in our hometown, Richmond, VA for one final hurrah. There is nothing more that I want then to see friends and family to share this last run before we shut the engine down. I hope to see you all there..and for those of you who never believed in us… FUCK ALL YALL!
Daniel, James, Jason, and Matt
