RIP: Go Radio

gorip

After seven years, dozens of sad songs, and countless broken hearts mended through sing-a-longs, Floridian pop rock favorites Go Radio have announced their next tour will be their last.

Taking to their social networks this evening, Go Radio members Alex Reed and Steven Kopacz issued the following statement:

“It is with heavy hearts that after 7 years of making music and touring the world, Go Radio has come to an end. For some of you this comes as a huge shock and for our friends and family this will be a certain sense of closure. There is no easy way to write something like this so we won’t beat around the bush.

Earlier this year Jason came to us with the news that he felt his time with Go Radio had come to an end. He felt a shift in priority to spend more time with his wife and retire from a life on the road. The decision to end this chapter was far from easy, but it simply would not be Go Radio without all four of us. Because of that, this decision is the right one.

The experiences, relationships, and memories we have shared are irreplaceable. You, the fans, have had our backs from day one and we could not be more grateful for what you enabled us to accomplish. You’ve given us a chance to travel the world and share our stories as you shared yours with us. We cannot thank you enough. We always strived to be the best band and friends we could be. To take the time to meet each and every one of you, talk to you, laugh with you, cry with you… we wouldn’t trade those moments for anything. Go Radio was not just a band, it became a worldwide family, a lifeboat for all of us to keep our heads above water in good times and bad. Music is immortal. What we’ve created will never die. We encourage you all to focus on the good as it significantly outweighs any sense of bad.

As for the future… we will all be involved with music one way or another and will be active in letting you know what we’re up to.”

We asked some of our industry friends and fans of Go Radio to help us with a goodbye playlist. You can find that feature here.
