Heard about this last weekend, but didn't get confirmation until a bit ago: Victoria -- who released one EP and received several music award nominations this year -- broke up. A cryptic message ostensibly written by vocalist David Moore is on the trio's MySpace:
Victoria lived for two years and six months. Thank you to all the past band members, but mainly Chad Rogers and Steve Andrews. Come and be apart of our final two shows July 12th, and August 23rd. Ending the first band I ever started was the hardest thing I've ever done. Reasons for it are very personal and sacred. I don't expect anyone to fully understand why. A more detailed farewell is coming soon.
The band's last two shows are July 12 opening for LOGOS at that band's CD release show, and at the Lot on August 23.
