Alt-Rock quintet, Balance and Composure have released a statement; confirming that they have reformed, but that their upcoming tour will be their last. The indie-rock five-piece went on hiatus, following a string of shows celebrating their tenth anniversary as a band. The band addressed their future in the statement below:
“When we played our ten year anniversary shows in January of last year, we had no intentions of them being our final shows. Due to some internal and personal discussions, we were unable to decide our fate as a band at the time.
We all needed to take some time to live our lives and step back for a minute. We got together a few months ago and realized we wanted more.
We never envisioned an ending to what we had built together, let alone an abrupt one. Now that it is upon us, we want to go out on our terms. We are happy to announce that we will be playing 6 shows this Spring to say goodbye.
These shows are all we have planned in our future and we would love if you joined us one last time.“
Support for the final tour will be provided by Tigers Jaw, Touché Amoré, and mewithoutYou; all acts that have been influenced by, and are friends of, Balance and Composure.
Balance and Composure became a band in 2008, and made waves in the scene with their 2011 debut record ‘Separation’. Their grungy alt-rock sound was seen as a welcome throwback to the 90’s pinnacle of angsty guitar music, in a scene awash with saccharine neon-punk.
2013’s ‘The Things We Think We’re Missing’ saw the band dialling back the heaviness, but pushing forward with more experimental textures. 2016’s ‘Light We Made’-the band’s final album-saw the group embrace a more conventional, but equally accomplished indie-rock sound.
Fans can expect a mixture of all eras during the bands farewell run. The dates for Balance and Composure’s final tour can be seen below:
