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.
