Florida based down-tempo band Traitors has released a statement today, stating they could not handle the emptiness of not touring and being a band. They failed to go their separate ways and have re-united and with Tyler on Vocals. Here's what they had to say from the band's Facebook page:
"At the beginning of this year, we made the decision to lay Traitors to rest. Due to the departure of our vocalist Tyler, we felt it was best to end things the way they started, with the original founding members.
Unfortunately life's stresses had come into play & for most of us, trying to juggle our personal lives & the band after 5 constant years of nonstop grinding/hard work became a breaking point. Losing jobs, relationships, friends, homes & much more due to the intense amount focused on Traitors, eventually lead to problems & mixed emotions within the band which pushed to the decision to end the group & move on individually trying new things/finding more stability in our lives.
Sooner than later, the feeling of emptiness & regret began to grow in us. Days turned into weeks & into months, & more & more we began to realize just how much we missed this band & mostly, all of you.
After careful planning & talking countless hours over the last couple weeks, we all decided there was no way in hell we can let this story end this way. So if you haven't guessed just yet, we are very excited to announce that WE'RE BACK! & yes, with Tyler on vocals!!!
This wouldn't have ever been possible if it wasn't for the support we received from every single one of you while we were away. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for never stopping believing in us.
We have a brand new single we will be dropping in the next few days & a tour announcement coming soon. Damn it's good to be back 💀 see you all soon!
(Tyler, Stephen & Alan)"
