Hostage Calm Officially Break Up

Yesterday’s announcement that Hostage Calm would not be continuing on Citizen’s current tour (Slingshot Dakota quickly replaced them on the bill) should have been the tip-off that something wasn’t right.

Not even a day after the news of them dropping off of the tour had been confirmed, the Connecticut based band had announced that they had disbanded.

In a message posted to fans on the band’s official Facebook page, they explain that there is some major heartache in the decision to call it a day. They tell fans that “it’s too soon, it’s too young, and it hurts too much” and all previously scheduled show have been cancelled.

“Hostage Calm has broken up. It’s too soon, it’s too young, and it hurts too much.

All planned shows are canceled. We are still figuring out if and when there will be any final shows.
I want to personally thank every one of you who supported us over the years. You shared so much more with us than you’ll ever know. From our music to our politics, you helped make a bunch of Wallingford kids’ foolish dreams a reality. It was the great privilege of our young lives.

To all of you who’ve connected with us, who’ve grown with us, who’ve loved, changed, cried, lived with us – and to all of you who will yet – Just know that we loved what we did, and we could never have done it alone. “I’ve been a hero, and I’ve been a fool. And all of it for you.”

Yours Forever,
Hostage Calm”

This news comes as a shock to many fans especially since they had just released their fourth studio album, Die on Stage not even a month ago (Sept. 16). This is usually when people who make some “died on stage” puns, but we might advise that you don’t.
