New York, NY – Nate Ruess and Sam Means, the principle duo behind Arizona’s The Format, have tabled the band to focus on other projects. “We have decided to put The Format aside and work on our individual material. This was a tough decision,” says Means.



“We came out of tour last Fall and realized that we all have different aspirations right now. It didn’t feel like the right time to create a new Format album,” adds Ruess.



The duo will continue to operate their label together but it remains to be seen if there will be another release from The Format. “There’s nothing scandalous about this decision,” says Nate, “Sam and I remain extremely close.”



Ruess already has the ball in motion for his first non-Format album, which is expected to be released later this year.



“We want to thank the fans who made this the best 5 years of our lives.”

I can't live in a world where those two don't make music together.
