My Heart To Joy Call It Quits

After five years together, My Heart To Joy have decided to disband.

The Connecticut punk act released the following statement on their website:

“Everything comes with an expiration date. Your closest friends, the price of gasoline, the convenience store at the end of your street – all facets of life are subject to change at some point, but it’s this limit that makes our experiences so undeniably precious. The past has been an incredible pleasure and in a short time this band will no longer be around. Concern yourself with something more fulfilling, or at least go home and get some rest. It could do us all some good.”

Before they part ways, the band will be playing two farewell shows: one on March 4 at Lily’s Pad (New Haven, CT) and one on May 14 at a venue to be announced soon.

My Heart To Joy’s last full-length, ‘Seasons In Verse,’ was released in 2009 via Topshelf Records.
