Dear Children of the Revolution,
After a brief, but intense whirlwind-like love affair, Motion City Soundtrack and Columbia Records have parted ways. Even though America wanted it to work out, much like the marriage of Ryan Phillipe and Reese Witherspoon, it just was not in the stars. That being said, neither side holds any sort of ill will toward the other. We each gave it our best shot, but due to the ever changing musical climate, as well as other unforeseeable factors, we both felt that this would be in our best interests. So for now, we go it alone. We have been diligently working on Album #5, which we hope to have in your hands soon. What the future holds for us label-wise is anyone’s guess, but we can promise that there will be an onslaught of new material released and with ever increasing frequency. What we’re trying to say is: Hold on to your hats ladies and gents, for we have not even begun to unleash the true fury that is Motion City Soundtrack! 

Thank you for listening and for being a part of our lives.
Justin, Josh, Jesse, Matt, and Tony
