Cameron Boucher, frontman of the Connecticut emo group Sorority Noise, went to social media earlier this week to announce that his band will be going on hiatus after their next tour.
Boucher, who has been very open with fans about his struggle with mental health, mentions that he “think it’s in [his] heart and mind’s best interest to take a break from the band for a while.”
It is not unheard-of for bands to take a break to focus on their personal well-beings. Last year, Philly group Modern Baseball announced their hiatus for the same reasons.
In his off time, Boucher will most likely be focusing on his new recording studio, The Metal Shop, in Philadelphia which he runs with Jake Ewald and Ian Farmer of Modern Baseball. He is also involved with a few side projects such as Old Grey and Small Circle.
It would be unfair to be upset with Sorority Noise for making this decision, especially since they are giving fans fair warning before their next tour and releasing new material later this month.
On March 16th, Sorority Noise will be releasing a full-length alternate version of their most recent studio album, Your Not As _____ As You Think. The reworked record will include new, stripped-down arrangements and added strings. It is simply titled YNAAYT.
Sorority Noise heads on their final tour for the foreseeable future on March 8th with Remo Drive, Foxx Bodies, and Jelani Sei.
