The veteran pop-punk/emo band, Transit, will be playing their final show in New York City at The Studio at Webster Hall this April 20th and 21st as part of their final tour together as a band.
The band made an announcement that they would be going on their final tour after deciding to call it quits on their Facebook last month:
A letter to all who have shed blood, sweat, and tears with us over the last decade:
After ten years of writing, recording, and living on the road, it is time for us to close this current chapter on Transit, as we have decided to direct our energy into other aspects of our lives.
Since 2006 we’ve been given the incredible opportunity of sharing our music with the world, performing in over 14 different countries, and circling our own countless times.
Through all the ups and downs we have witnessed a side of humanity so caring and sincere that we now see the world in a vivid and magnificent light.
As for us as individuals, we will always love each other and the records we wrote together. We love all of you for lending an ear and losing your voices with us.
We will always be able to say that we had the best fans a band could possibly ask for. When we think about the road we’ll see all the faces and friends fly by in one big warm blur. Your stories and kind words helped push us along more than you may ever know.
April 21st to April 26th we will be performing an array of mixed songs from over the years at our final shows as a band. We have chosen some of our favorite intimate clubs to put this to rest at.
We never expected a few basement show to turn into ten years of traveling the world, playing the songs we love. For that we will always be forever grateful. We love you all and thank you.
Nothing lasts forever.
Daniel, Joseph, Brandon, PJ, Torre
The band added a second date, April 20th, after the news of their break-up resulted in their April 21st performance to sell out. In addition, they added another tour date in Worcester, Massachusetts after their show in Boston ended up selling out also. They announced the addition of these two shows on their Facebook last week and apologized to fans who were not able to obtain tickets for some of their performances.
Formed in Boston in 2006, Transit has released five full-length studio albums as well as a handful of EP’s and a split with Man Overboard. Their most recent album release, Joyride, came out in 2014 on Rise Records and featured their hit single, The Only One.
If you want to catch Transit during their last NYC appearance, it’s not too late. Although their performance on April 21st is sold out, fans can still catch the April 20th show. Tickets for the show go on sale tomorrow, March 9, at noon on Ticketweb.
