So, as some of you may have heard, For All Those Sleeping has announced that they are coming to an end. Notice that I didn't say they are breaking up. I saw a lot of comments questioning their logic behind saying they are ending the band but are not breaking up.
I actually think I understand the logic behind it, and just felt like expressing my thoughts on the matter. What is a break up? Most people, when they hear the word ' a break up' think of relationships coming to an end. Break ups don't just happen with signifigant others such as a boyfriend or girlfriend, they happen with friends and even families as well. Bands, generally tend to be a group of friends, sometimes relatives. They can 'break up' without breaking up with each other.
Is this making sense?
Its to my understanding, that maybe they put it the way they did for a couple possible reasons. One could be potentionally a new project involving all of them, or it could just be they're done with this but they're not done with each other. They're still friends and are going to stick together, just they aren't going to keep making music. A lot of things could be possible here, so if you are a fan of For All Those Sleeping, don't be too sad. I know this sucks, but who knows what might be on the horizon in the future.
That's something to keep in mind for every situation, but I won't get too deep this time. I just wanted to talk about the thoughts I had behind them saying it was an end not a break up. There is a difference! Its a very slight difference, but it is still a difference!
