This is kinda hard to say, but anyway here goes: after eight immensely fun years of playing together as Red Riders it seems like now’s the right time to bow out. We’re all still the closest of friends, but just feel like the entity that is Red Riders has run its course, and rather than grind something that’s special to us into the ground, we’d like to call it quits while we can still stand proudly behind everything that we’ve made together. We wanna thank everyone who’s ever bought a record of ours, come to one our shows, shared our music with someone, written about us, put our music on the airwaves… Basically, to anyone who’s ever given a damn, thank you! It’s been mad sharing a part of our lives with way more people than we had any right to expect to. We’re gonna keep making music in other guises so keep a ear out, and if you see us at the pub, or lurking up the back of a show someplace, come say hi. We can grab a beer.
P.S We’re gonna play a couple of special farewell shows in Sydney and Melbourne that we’ll announce real soon, but otherwise the upcoming shows supporting Children Collide will be our last. Hope to see you there!
