Adios Audio A

In an announcement that will make nostalgic '90s Christian rock fans weep bitterly, Audio Adrenaline recently announced that they will be ending their career in 2006 with a final project entitled Adios, which will feature some of the band's hits (and maybe a couple of misses) as well as some new tracks. Granted, few people have paid any attention to the band since 2001's Lift album, but it is the end of an era for the CCM industry, as AudioA were one of the foundational artists that helped the industry through the early 90s and to its newfound prominence a decade later. In related and similarly disappointing news, the Newsboys have recruited fellow Aussie Paul Colman to the band and are still making music. It's a sad sad world in which we live.

Forever seems further

In an announcement that will make emo kids everywhere weep bitterly, Further Seems Forever has recently announced that they will be bringing an end to their tumultuous musical career early in 2006. They have plans to release some previously unreleased material, as well as a DVD. The world is a sadder place today, but their retirement leaves FSF with arguably the best three-album career ever, and at least of the 21st century (unless Demon Hunter calls it quits soon). We still have Dashboard Confessional, but we will miss you, Further.
