Straight Edge warriors Casey Jones will release their third and final record January 11, 2011 entitled I Hope We're Not The Last. Front man Josh James explains the band’s demise simply as "We are born, we grow and then we die, and that's exactly what we're doing as a band, and we're happy doing it."

According to the band, which features members and former members of Evergreen Terrace, I Hope We're Not The Last almost wasn't made. The record was written a few years ago as a Eulogy Recordings release, but after issues with the label, the album was left in limbo. "Initially, we thought the songs would never be recorded, but it didn't feel right ending the band that way. It's not something we want to slowly fade away. We want to put a legit end to it, and we want it to be fun. When we started this band, we didn't expect to release records, much less to gain fans across the world. We certainly didn't expect so many people to be moved by our message. We believe 2011 will be a great year to release this record and say goodbye through touring." Casey Jones is self-releasing the album through James’ artist management company, The First Division.

The album title, I Hope We’re Not The Last, was taken from Minor Threat, the band that coined the term Straight Edge, in their song “Minor Threat.” Speaking on the music James says "This record is a ripper from start to finish. The message and the music are equally memorable. Casey Jones sometimes gets characterized as humorous because of our lyrics. We like to have fun, but at the same time, we have always talked about serious topics. We are a band that has stayed true to our core values, and that won't change, even when this band is done."

Founded in 2003 in Jacksonville, FL, Casey Jones quickly established themselves in the hardcore scene as some of this decades greatest spokesman for Straight Edge. The band has previously released two full-length records and a handful of vinyl releases on various labels.
