As some of you have already figured out, our band has experienced some changes - on July 28th, 2008, 1997 decided to part ways with our current singer/keyboardist Alida Marroni. Bassist Alan Goffinski also decided to leave. Alan was an original member and Alida joined the band in april 2007 shortly after Kerri Mack left the band for personal reasons. It is unfortunate, but we wish Alida all the best for the future.



On a positive note, 1997 will be back on the road in no time at all. For the time being, Cody is going to play bass, and we are auditioning girls to come on tour as a replacement for the next few months. After that we will find a permanent girl to write and record the new album with. We're also happy to announce that Kerri will be joining us for our Chicago Metro show on August 8th for one night only, it will be a very special performance where we will be playing the whole of A Better View Of The Rising Moon so please come and hang out with us!



Although the band is sad to lose a member, we are also very excited to show every one what we can accomplish as a cohesive group of friends. We are optimistic about our future and confident that our shows will be better than ever and the next record will be the best 1997 record to date! We will never stop playing our songs for the people that enjoy them. This is what gives us joy and strength to carry on. Thank you to all of our fans who have stuck with us through all of our craziness and turmoil, we love you from the bottom of our filthy hearts.
