Arizona Splitting Up

Wednesday, April 28, 2010

via email today:
Before reading on we want to thank you very much for several great musical years as Arizona. We always appreciated the thought and time people gave us and our music. There's such a large musical world out there, and it meant a lot to us that we were able to share and be a part of that world for so many people.

As of now, Arizona is on an indefinite hiatus. Creative and philosophical differences sparked an amicable split – all of us care very much about each other and making music – and we'll all continue to make music. We put our hearts into the music we made as Arizona, and as of now this is the best way to make sure that the people who enjoyed Arizona get to hear as much from us as possible. We're now working as the following two bands:

New Beard

Attached is a parting (for the time) gift. It was a recording we made for fun/a laugh, for a friend, and thought others might enjoy it as well. The track can be downloaded for free by clicking here. We recorded this tune when we were at our sharpest as a live 4 piece, just off the Glowing Bird tour.

You may be receiving just one more email from each of these new bands (the email will give you a simple way of being taken off of the mailing list if you would prefer that).

Thanks again for letting us share our music!

EP release party for WAGES - May 8th @ LAB in Asheville

They came to my attention when I learned they'd recorded some in Asheville, NC, and they turned out to be one of my favorite bands. And one of my favorite cds of recent years was Arizona's Glowing Bird. Damn, people, it's beautiful. It's melody driven, it's harmony driven and you can't go wrong with that combo. The Beatles had that combination, Yeasayer has it. A few more bands do... so I'm anxious to listen to the two bands that came out of Arizona listed above.

For now I'm going to hunt Glowing Birds and listen to it again. Fucking classic. =)

It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
