It’s now been 8 years and however many hundreds of shows… that’s a long time and a lot of gigs for any band, let alone one with such varying and odd releases all issued in the spirit of “sonic exploration.” So, while it was a lot of fun to have so much creative freedom and highway/jetway miles under our feet, I’ve decided that 2011 is the proper year to kill it off and move on to something far more focused and more “me” as I stand today. And so, on January 7, 2011, FORENSICS will be destroyed publicly in Richmond, VA for any for wish to be in attendance.

I started this band in 2003 for no other reason but to jam with really good dudes and put a 3″ CD in an evidence container. It obviously went on much longer than that and took me to many places and introduced me to many more great people than I ever imagined possible. I’m always going to be thankful for that.

Yet at the end of 2010, an opportunity came along that was entirely good to pass up. As such, 3/4 of FORENSICS’ current lineup are moving on to a new, exciting endeavor that will be reuniting us with a very familiar face/old friend… as well as an additional musician/vocalist that I’ve held in the absolute highest regard for the last 17 years and counting. There will be much more information available in the coming weeks concerning our new band. In the meantime, we’re going to enjoy this final week as FORENSICS and cap it with a very loud and festive coffin nail come Friday at Empire.

Thanks to all who supported the band on every level. It was a fantastic trip and we’re all looking forward to checking your seat belts and making sure you’re buckled in for the next stage in our pedigree. It’s going to be our wildest ride yet.
