Sad news from Watertown…. Kodiak Island Band is calling it quits. The band had this to say:
“So after almost two years, Kodiak Island is going dark. The meat and taters of the group is relocating to California, and sadly this brings the crushing end to the monster known as Kodiak Island. We only wish the best for Peter Hatch, and hopefully get to pound these songs out again someday.
We are really looking to book a show at the end of March (30th, 31st hopefully), so i…f anyone could help us out with that, we would appreciate it. Please get in contact with me if you know of a concrete place to do this. The end of the month is fast approaching and we want to get the word out.
We also want to thank all of our friends who supported us over our journey. Maps of War, Like Trainwrecks, Cassidy has Cholera, Bruce Campbell, Greene Reveal…. and so many more. Thank you to Eli who recorded our EP. We want to thanks all those dudes and ladies who came out and listened to us as we blasted bass, drum, and synth driven sonic booms into your ears for 25-30 minutes each set. I know we are different, but we wanted to give everyone something you all may have never seen, and maybe will never see again.
We love what we do. We love the Watertown scene, but as we grow older we all walk new paths. As I type these last words I find it a little hard to not shed a small single tear at the fact that maybe we could have pushed this to be more. Be bigger. But alas, times change, people change, and yet life continues to bloom.
Support your local bands, and support each other. God bless America, and God Bless Kodiak Island.
Sincerely, Pete, Matt, Mike, Josh. ♥”
We wish the members of Kodiak Island Band the best in whatever it is they decide to do.
