RIP Finch (1999 - 2010)

>> After being together for about 11 years, Finch have announced their break up. The official statement from the band as well as the band's final two songs can be seen/streamed below.
Dear Finch fans,
....
.. ..
Over the past two years we as a band have obsessed tirelessly trying to bring you the best record Finch has ever made. Blowing everything else out of the water was the only option. If we couldn't drop the bomb, we wouldn't blow it up.....
.. ..
....From the beginning what's always made up the sound of Finch was our ability to take our individual influences, no matter how different, and write music together that stands on it's own. A tense balancing act on a loose wire where we have had success crossing and also lost balance to fall and be broken. Over the past few years we have collectively gone insane trying to achieve the common goal of writing our new record. It's become obvious to all of us that the thing that made Finch such a special band to be in, was also the key ingredient that was tearing us apart. As we get older and broaden our musical pallets, we are all on separate planets drifting further and further out of orbit. Finch is our sun, it has given us everything that we have. This year our sun imploded. Although we travel through darkness. It's comforting to know that we are all still friends. Together floating in the unknown.
....
.. ..
....We want to thank you for your undying love and support of our band. Without you, accomplishing our wildest dreams would not have been possible. We apologize deeply for letting you down. Please forgive us and please keep listening to Finch.
.. ..
Thank you for Finch.
.. ..
-Finch....
