The Answering Machine Split


If it's not all-too-obvious already, the whole reason this blog exists is to champion music and artists I feel strongly about and share them with you. Sadly, one of those I cheered for the hardest have called it a day.  In a handwritten note posted Monday on their website, The Answering Machine announced their split, effective immediately.    




On a personal note, they're one of only a small number of bands I've gotten to know better away from the stage. So while I'll miss hearing any more new music and cheerfully supporting their cause, I know that each of them have a bright future no matter what they choose to pursue.   As a final farewell, their recently released Lifeline will soon be available on vinyl.  Check out the video of the title cut, directed by their touring 5th member Luke Bellis.

  1. While I wish this entry had a happier tone, I owe you thanks for introducing their music to me and championing their music over the years. I look forward to getting Lifeline on vinyl!

  2. Me too, if it wasn't for Woxy I won't have been introduced to their music. I loved The Answering Machines, unfortunately I never got to hear them live. Wish them the best with their new endeavors.

  4. Nuuuuuuts! Sadly, even though I'm in Austin and they played here a few times, I never got the chance to see them live. Booo. Wish them all the best in their other endeavors.
