this is letting go. after eight years, killing the dream is gonna call it a day.

we’ve seen three continents, 46 states, met a million amazing people and eaten about 3428234 pizzas- all because of this stupid band. i feel SO lucky to have been able to be a part of it.

i can’t post gratitude to everyone who deserves it here, but to ANYONE whose path we’ve crossed- THANK YOU. almost every memory i’ve made over the past decade has had something to do with KTD or hardcore…and you all are forever a part of that. it’s not easy letting go of something you’ve loved so much, but it’s something we have to do.

our last show is july 2nd at gilman street in berkeley, ca with our friends THE CARRIER and ALL TEETH. we really hope you can make it.
until then, so long…

Don't get me wrong, I like them..
..But they had a very long run for the type of band that they were.

Gonna try to make it to the Gilman show.

Already mourned about this when I first found out the news, all my favorite hardcore bands are breaking up! But it is true, for the type of music they played they had a very successful career, and I can't say I didn't see this coming. Just not so soon after the release of Lucky Me.

Don't worry about it. I had the same thing happen in 04/05 when all my favorite newer hardcore bands (Champion, Give Up The Ghost, The Suicide File, From Ashes Rise etc), broke up. Bands like Verse, Have Heart, Ruiner and Killing The Dream came to replace them, so I'm sure the same thing will happen now that they're all gone.

There'll be a great new wave of bands, no doubt about it. Now they have a new set of influences too, which combined with the earlier eras should make for at least 5 brilliant bands.
