STATEMENT FROM KEVIN SECONDS, ON BEHALF OF THE BAND 7SECONDS…

I had hoped to never ever make this announcement. In fact, I vowed to never
do it because, in my heart of hearts, I figured that, as long as Steve,
Troy, Bobby and I love playing our songs for people and as long as we are
physically and mentally healthy, 7 Seconds would probably just go on
forever until we couldn’t anymore.

None of us ever wanted to make a ‘we quit’ announcement to our friends and
fans.

None of us ever wanted to do reunion tours or comeback albums.

Well shit…

I’m here to, very sadly and regretfully, announce that the band is
officially calling it a day and will not be playing any more shows or
touring in the future.

The reason are many but first and foremost, our brother and drummer Troy
Mowat has a fractured C-6 vertebrae and a torn rotator cuff and has
struggled with some nerve damage in his neck and wrists for some time. All
of this causes him tremendous pain and greatly affects his stamina and
mobility. So, he basically needs to stop playing drums which he has done
for almost 40 years.

Besides that, our brother and bassist Steve Youth continues to struggle
with his own medical issues, most notably, blindness in his left eye due to
cataracts which has contributed to bouts of pain, depression and anxiety
and is affecting every aspect of his personal life.

So basically, we’re a great big and old punk rock mess and the 4 of us
can’t really find a way to dust ourselves off or work around the rubble
enough to play out as a live band again. It's become way too big a
challenge and, as much as we all still love playing our songs onstage
together, it's just getting more and more difficult to get everyone
together to pull it off.

Those who have worked closely with us or who have followed us throughout
our 38 years know how dysfunctional we can be but we always managed to pull
our shit together at just the right time.

This time around, the reality of being middle-aged, working class, not
terribly relevant and not being able to bounce back from injuries and
personal problems as easily has become a weight just too great for us to
bear and all signs finally point to retirement.

There will be no more band member replacements or even temporary fill-ins.

7Seconds is Steve, Troy, Bobby and Kev. Pretty much always has been and
will be.

Personally speaking, being 2 years shy of a 40 year anniversary has me
feeling a little down but there are more important things than milestones.
Health of my band brothers and our families trumps everything else at this
point.

We’ve informed our amazing and longtime booking agents — Margie/Do It
Booking in the U.S. and Snoopy/M.A.D. in Europe — that we’re officially
done. Sadly, that means, that we won’t be able to do our Punk Rock Bowling
show in May or our Europe tour run in June.

There is so much more to say and so many people we love to thank but for
right now, that’s it.

We’re done. Young 'til we don't feel too good, I guess.

We love and thank each and everyone of you for everything.

Sincerely,
Kev, Steve, Troy and Bobby of 7Seconds
