After almost ten years of being an active band, TEEN have decided to move on. It was a difficult decision to leave behind such a special, dear project, but we are also enthusiastic about what the future will bring. _____________________ It has been a long, exciting, and arduous road, colored with unbelievable experiences and opportunities. We have been incredibly fortunate to continue as a touring band for all these years. _____________________ We would like to thank anyone and everyone who has been involved with us musically over the years -especially those who have been in various iterations of the band – @maiaibar, @turnerjenjen, @puppylodge, @instamiles, @spidersongs and above all, @ladyboshra and @danieljschlett. Thank you for being a part of our family. _____________________ The music industry is not always kind and challenges our health and well being. So to find support within those challenges, is beyond meaningful and can impact your experience. We have been so fortunate to have had support from a generous and thoughtful label, @carparkrecords, from the beginning. We couldn’t have asked for a better team. And to everyone who has worked with us over the years- from booking agents, publicists, to management, we appreciate all of your hard work and energy. _____________________ Last, and certainly not least, thank you to all of you – our fans, our friends, our family – for supporting us over the years and believing in our music. We appreciate it from the bottom of our hearts ♥️ _____________________ Please join us for our final shows; October 27th in Chicago at @hideoutchicago and October 30th in Brooklyn at @musichallofwb. It will be full of special guests and surprises. _____________________ XO TEEN
TEEN formed in Brooklyn back in 2010, and became noted for their blend of genres, which often blended forms of electronic music with indie rock. Their most recent album Good Fruit was released earlier this year, and was accompanied by a European tour which will go on until October.
While this year will mark the end of the band’s run, they expressed gratefulness for their final run:
