CHAIR.LIKE.TEETH

Music enthusiast, retro-gamer, mid-twenties and married. I work at Rise Records in Portland, OR. I used to front the rock band The Graduate, and occasionally write story-lines and music for video games.

The Graduate to go on indefinite hiatus

To all of our friends, family, and fans,

You may have noticed things have been very quiet lately around The Graduate camp. If you’ve followed our band closely you know that the past few years have been full of trials, twists, and turns. We did everything we could to keep things going this long, however after almost 6 years The Graduate has begun entering the realm of indefinite hiatus.

We all feel extremely lucky to have been able to play so many shows in so many different places, and want to personally thank everyone who came out to a gig, picked an album or shirt, bought us a drink, helped us book a concert, let us crash in your homes, and everything in-between. We were fortunate enough to work with so many great people (far too many to name). We’re very proud of all the work we’ve done together, and grateful for all the support.

Things may not have always ended up the way we wanted, but for the most part we were able to do things our own way. We hope that the songs we made will stay as close to you as it will with us. No matter what happens, no one can ever take away the music.

We will be playing four farewell shows around our hometown area. We’re very sorry that we can’t play one last show in every city we’ve come to love, but we hope that you’ll try to make it out to one if you can. If you want to reach out to us, we’ll try to reply to as many people as we can. Thank you again, we’ll miss this.

Tim, Corey, Matt, Max, & Jared

The Graduate
