So, that's the end of 2017, but also the end of Montroze.
We just wanted to take the time to thank every single one of you for the support you've given us over the last 5 years. It's been an absolute pleasure to meet, speak to and play shows for you.
We've done more than we ever could have imagined in our time. We've played shows on the other side of the world, had coverage in big music publications, played with some bands we love but also look up to and are inspired by, made friends for life and we've recorded music that's genuinely meant the world to us, and we owe it all to you guys.
We've been lucky enough to work with some amazing people; photographers, artists, bands, promoters, and anyone and everyone behind the scenes.
We feel like we owe you an explanation, and the most simple way of putting it, is that after 5 years, we feel like we've done all we can as Montroze. The heart wasn't there when writing new songs, and instead of putting out something half hearted, we felt this was the best thing to do.
That said, all of our music is online for free on our bandcamp (http://montrozeofficial.bandcamp.com) but it's also on Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, etc.
So whilst we're gone, the music never dies!
I'm sure we'll all be doing our own things over the coming months, so keep an eye out for that, but until then just accept our most heartfelt thanks and gratitude. (Photo: @ishashahphotography snapped this whilst we were on tour in Canada)
