Indie pop band Castledoor announced that they were calling it quits this week. Its a shame, they had a lot of potential….the following was posted on the band’s website earlier this week:
it feels completely insane to write that after 5 years of blood, sweat, tears, and some of the best times of our lives… the Castledoor chapter as we know it is coming to a close.
i always thought we would be the band that would survive anything.
most of us were actually feeling optimistic about things lately.
we recently finished recording some our most exciting songs with plans for a photo shoot, video shoot and press.
the slow progression of our band as a career only made us want to work harder.
regardless of the frustrations we had we always valued the fundamental joy of playing music with each other.
sadly, Gabe announced to us this week that he was ready to move on from Castledoor.
we’re really bummed but we wish Gabe and Coury all the happiness in the world.
soon we hope to make the recent recordings (Flashlight EP) available on all digital music stores, including iTunes.
we’re sincerely grateful to all of you who have shown your support.
from the bottom of our hearts: THANK YOU!
Joel, Brando, Liska & I plan to continue making music together.
although we’re filled with all sorts of emotions, there is an overwhelming sense that the best is yet to come.
love, nate and all of Castledoor
