O PIoneers!!! Announce Final Tour (Nov 26 - Dec 07)

Long-running rockers O Pioneers!!! have announced their imminent demise. In a statement issued late last night from his fortified printing compound outside Houston, Pioneers’ fearless leader Eric Solomon expounded on the death of the dream:
O Pioneers!!! was a band that should have ended a long time ago. I started this band in the fall of 2004, and it's slowly changed and migrated into what it is today, based off of the millions of people that have been in this band. I got tired of trying to con people into playing songs that they liked, or may have been a fan of, but ultimately they didn't have a connection with, besides something that was at face value. This was my first band, and I'd like to remember it as such. I'm super excited and proud of everything I've been able to do with this band, and even more excited and honored by the people I've met playing in this band. But I feel that at this time it's better to try and start over, instead of trying to force something that I feel has been over for a little while now. The future of music in my life is really exciting right now, and I couldn't be happier with how OP!!! is ending, and for what projects we’ll be starting next year. Big thanks to a million people, but especially everyone who has been in this band at one point (all 30,000 of you), and all close friends and family (you know who you are).
O Pioneers!!! will celebrate this momentous occasion with a short farewell tour beginning next week. They will be joined on all dates by labelmates and old friends New Bruises, with the tour taking both bands throughout the East Coast for shows alongside Latterman, Iron Chic, Tigers Jaw and many more. Dates are listed below.
In honor of a lifespan rivaled only by their incessant release schedule, O Pioneers!!! have unleashed their complete discography as a digital pay-what-you-want download via Juicebox Recording Co. This discography includes all of the 7”s, EP’s, splits and full-lengths, as well as various demos, live recordings and unreleased songs. The only songs not included are the three songs that are on the Andrew Jackson Jihad split 9” released earlier this year on No Idea Records.
