My Pop Punk Heart Is Broken: A Loss For Words Plan To Disband In 2015

2012-07-10_001(pp_w649_h436)

There is no way around it. The news I am about to share sucks more than I can begin to express in the introduction, but at least we have a year to let everything sink in.

Last night, August 23, A Loss For Words were playing a hometown show in Massachusetts when frontman Matt Arsenault told the crowd that the band had a very special announcement to share. We were not on site, so it’s impossible for us to tell you exactly what was said, but we do know that the group revealed plans to disband next year. In fact, the band went as far as to say that their final show will be in December 2015. You can view several tweets from people in attendance at the show below.

A Loss For Words were originally known as Last Ride in 1999, but not long after forming the group changed their name to the internationally recognized pop punk brand we all know today. They released a number of successful EPs between 2004 and 2008, but it was the release of The Kids Can’t Lose in 2009 that pushed the Hanover, MA rock band into the national spotlight. The rest, as they say, is music history.

We have been covering A Loss For Words since the first or second week of UTG’s existence, and to see them decide that the time has come to walk away makes me incredibly sad. On a personal note, AL4W have been there for me during some of the darkest moments in my life, and I will forever hold a place for them in my heart. We’ll bring you more on the members’ plans for the future as soon as more information becomes available.
