from the noise ratchet email.
im left with nothing but questions.
what about the new record. what about
us who arent readyt to say good bye.
this is the saddest news ever.
EVERYONE is breaking up. it sucks.
hello to all of our our longtime friends!
we have a big announcement to make...noise ratchet is no more! this has been a bizarre season for the band and through many many conversations and prayers we have decided to move on. not just move on, but to move forward! it is one of the most bittersweet decisions of our lives, but nonetheless one that we all feel is necessary!
first, let me personally thank every one of you who has cared about, enjoyed, loved, encouraged and supported us through many years of great fun! it has truly been the greatest of fun! but wait! before we all start crying... i want you all to know that the end of noise ratchet is also the beginning of something new! did you really think we would stop playing music?!!! not a chance!
this new music will hopefully make its way out of our souls and into your ears very soon. i can't wait!! what is coming?! even we have no clue, but we will keep you closely posted.
finally, i want you all to know that we are playing three last shows as noise ratchet!!! we will be playing a retrospective set! songs from every era! (that sounds like we have been around for 20 years or something!) yes it is true, even why we cry! spread the word! we can't wait to see you all! they will be three nights to remember indeed!!
on an ending note, my friend richard once said, "it's a bittersweet symphony, this life!" right he is. but the good news is that the bitter is followed closely, and defeated by, the sweet! cheers to new beginnings!
we love you all so much and thank you for your never-ending support!!!
