Outlook Uncertain: Set Your Goals Update Fans On Status Of Band

Set Your Goals

Set Your Goals have been a favorite band of many UTG staffers and readers over the years, but anyone with even the slightest interest in the beloved pop punk outfit could tell you it has been a while since the group did basically anything at all. To make matters worse, they have also remained largely silent about when, or even if, they plan on doing more in the future.

On Christmas morning, an update was posted on the band’s official Facebook explaining that the members of Set Your Goals had only recently learned of their ability to communicate with fans through private messages sent to their official page. Members of the group began working through messages, but it quickly became clear that most people had the same question: What is going on with Set Your Goals?

The band soon posted a second update, this time directing their efforts directly towards those curious about their future plans. Vocalist Matt Wilson wrote:

On a related note, I’ve gotten a ton of angry messages asking for an answer on the status of the band. The truth is, we just don’t know the future for certain and don’t want to get people’s hopes up or give any information that could end up being untrue. As a band, we are laying low for a while and busy individually with our adult lives. We haven’t “broken up” per se, we’re just focusing on other things for the time being. Here’s what we’ve been up to:

-Dan got married and will be moving to Atlanta, GA, next month.

-Joe recently moved to Portland, OR, and plays in a band called Great Collapse

-Jordan returned to school and is pursuing film. He still needs another surgery before he can resume full use of his Achilles’ tendons again, as far as I know.

-Mike started ambrosewoodworks.com and builds high end tables, and plays in U.S. Light Brigade and What’s Eating Gilbert.

-Audelio had a daughter named Olivia, works for Glad Rags, and plays with What’s Eating Gilbert.

-I run a record label called Calaveras Records and started a band called Chains. I also work for Snoop Dogg doing tour merchandising and production.

Hope that answers some of your questions.

-Matt

This is certainly not the news most fans were hoping for, but at least it’s better than nothing. We will bring you more on the group’s plans for the future as soon as additional information becomes available.
