Motion City Soundtrack Announces Farewell Tour‏

Following an impressive eighteen-year, six-album career, Motion City Soundtrack, has announced plans for a farewell tour in North America this Spring. The tour will be split into two legs. The first will begin May 5 in Portland, OR and end 5/22 in Des Moines, IA. The second will kick off 6/2 in Omaha, NE and end in the band’s hometown of Minneapolis, MN.  Joining the tour will be The Spill Canvas & Microwave. Tickets go on-sale Friday, March 18 at 10am local time.

In a recent statement, the band has said;

“It has been a quiet winter for us. We’ve had some time at home after a very busy 2015. With this time, we’ve been able to think about the past, present, and future of Motion City Soundtrack. All of this thinking has lead to several conversations, and these conversations have lead us to a very bittersweet realization:

We have no idea what the future holds, but for now we are done. 

Needless to say, we’re feeling all the feels – you may be as well. If so, or if you’ve ever been touched by our music, we ask you to come out and sing along with us one last time in 2016″

Motion City Soundtrack formed in Minneapolis in 1997 and has since built an extraordinary career for themselves with their unique style of indie rock meets power pop and quirkily smart lyrics that has resulted in six fan-coveted studio albums. The band will be playing an array of songs from their discography throughout the tour; Panic Stations (2015), Go (2012), My Dinosaur Life (2010), Even If It Kills Me (2007), Commit This to Memory (2005), and I Am The Movie (2003).
