Progressive rock band The Reasoning have announced that they are to split after 10 years together.
Rachel Cohen and her bandmates say that they are parting on amicable terms.
In a join statement issued via Facebook The Reasoning say: “We part in the knowledge that we have achieved many wonderful and great things as a band and as individuals but, the time has come to be honest and realise that as a musical group, we have explored as much as we can.
“Though we have enjoyed our journey with you immensely, we have also had occasions where it seemed so tough to carry on and as we approach the 3rd anniversary of the disappearance of our dear friend Owain, this seems like the right time to gently put the band to bed,” they add. Guitarist Owain Roberts disappeared in Cardigan, Wales almost exactly 3 years ago and has not been seen since.
Continue the band: “We want to thank all the bands, press and fans for the amazing loyalty, support and love. We have done many incredible things, been to many amazing places and played to so many amazing people. Our music lives on with you and in our hearts. This is not the last you will hear of us as musicians but I’m afraid, it is the last you will hear from us as a band. We are all parting on good terms and with firm friendships established. This is a decision we all feel is the best thing for the band and its musical legacy.
They sign off: “Be well, take care and we’ll all see you on the road sometime soon.”
