Motion City Soundtrack Announce Farewell Tour

Just in case you haven’t heard, Motion City Soundtrack is breaking up. Yes, we know, it’s a very tough pill to swallow and we are all pretty bummed out about it. However, trying to keep things positive, the band has just announced before they call it a day they will be hitting the road one last time.  

While yes, no one wants to hear news of their favorite band breaking up, at least there’s still an opportunity to see them on a national tour unlike some other bands (Alexisonfire, we’re looking at you). 

Also, along with the tour announcement, the Minnesota five-piece has also revealed they will be reuniting with longtime drummer Tony Thaxton. See, things aren’t so bad, right? You probably shouldn’t answer that…

Anyways, the tour will feature various tour guests on different dates including the likes of The Spill Canvas, Microwave, Have Mercy and more. To check out who’s playing when and where, you can see all tour dates and locations below. Afterwards, be sure to watch frontman Justin Pierre’s heartfelt farewell announcement here.
