Armor for Sleep (2001-2009)

Armor for Sleep has called it quits. The band released albums on Equal Vision Records and Sire and made this statement:

It’s been a little over a year since our last tour and some of you out there have kind of figured out whats been going on with us. We never wanted to burden you all with a formal announcement of any kind and cause some type of commotion- we just thought it would be better to kind of drift away nice and easy.

To me a song is like a snapshot of a moment, real or made-up, and the band that takes that snapshot is like a camera. I was really happy and proud of the pictures that came out of our little camera, but I would have much rather put in on a shelf for me and all of us to look at with fond memories than to feel this intense need to make it take high-def panoramic mosaics when maybe it was constructed to handle polaroid film. It’s as simple as that.

Read the entire statement here.
