Smoke and Mirrors.
03/18/09 at 12:00 AM by hydraulicheart
A little after midnight, I was leaving the library on campus and the first song to come on in the car was "Planning A Prison Break" by The Receiving End Of Sirens - the first song I ever heard of theirs. I figured I could drive a little longer to give the song an honest listen. That lead to listening to their whole discography instead of starting the book I should be reading to have finished by 9am. They are one of my favorite bands; I owed it to them and to myself. They have the substance practically every band seems to lack these days.

Then, I remembered... they called it quits in March of last year, so I searched back to find the post where it was announced. What do you know...

A year ago today, I walked into my dorm room, opened Firefox and found this post on my homepage. I immediately went outside, called my brother, and told him the news. I think he is the only other person who appreciated them like I do. Afterall, he is the reason I even started listening to them. I remember wanting to cry, my voice was shaking out of shock.

The Receiving End Of Sirens, today is about you. You're greatly missed from my life, but I hope you're doing well.
