Parting Thoughts from My American Heart

Posted by: Jack Appleby (08/15/12)
My American Heart guitarist Jesse Barrera has posted some thoughts on the band's upcoming final shows.
From the Blog"I believe it’s time that I hang it up, and do it for good. I know we’ve played our farewell shows, Played a reunion and some acoustic shows, but these next two for me is it. We’ve hung on because we itch for that feeling of walking on and playing that first note and playing that last song. Honestly - that feeling of walking on stage to people who have been waiting to sing your songs back to you is better than any other I have felt in my life. But we can’t drag it on forever."

Sad to see them go for good, but very happy I'll be there one last time. Band has never failed to impress me.

I can't imagine how hard it must be to walk away from something like this after all these years.

Such a bummer we never got a 3rd full length from these guys. The demos they released for it were their best stuff yet!

Jesse's solo album was good. I'm hoping for some more material.

Yeah, because recording and distributing a DVD is really easy and practically free, amirite?

I think he is working on his 3rd...4th full length album. I know one of the main reasons he is calling it a day on the whole being in a band is the fact that he is is running a pretty successfully recording studio.

I never said I thought it was free. I'm just saying it would've been cool to have a farewell DVD.
