After 10 years, 3 albums, and 328 shows, The Rest have decided to call it a day. We originally started with the intent of making music with as many friends as possible, without any direction outside of that one goal. The seven of us made this band our whole lives, and amazingly without sacrificing our commitment to each other. A messy divorce with name calling, hair pulling, and gear custody seemed to be the logical end. Surprisingly, it’s not a drama-filled decision. This is the right time for us to move on. It’s that simple. We will be playing our final show, on our 10th anniversary, June 8th, at the Dundas Montessori School. We’ve christened the show ‘The Last Anniversary’. We need to thank too many people, so if you’re reading this, consider yourself thanked. You cared, and helped make us care. The Rest was everything and nothing like we expected.
