[From Myspace] So this is it.
After six and a half years we have decided to do this one last time. When Sewing With Nancie was at our peak, we were playing over two hundred shows a year, having the times of our young lives. After a few weeks on the Warped Tour back in 2002, the songs and the sets grew tiresome, and we all needed something new. The new songs we were writing sounded nothing like classic SWN. We were tired, bored, and needed a change. We changed our name, stopped playing all SWN songs, and here we are, many member changes later, many albums later, as The Reason.
One night while sitting shotgun in our van drunk on the way home from a Reason show, Cubby, Ronson and myself put in The Same Three Chords for the first time in probably five years. We laughed, sang along, and remembered all the good times that came along with being a part of SWN. We decided that the next time The Reason was on any sort of break, we were gonna do it. A proper reunion. I feel now that it wasn’t fair how we just sort of “peaced out” back in ‘02, with no warning, no final shows, just nothing. The purpose of these reunion shows is most definitely to party, have fun, soak up a little nostalgia, and give Sewing With Nancie the proper funeral it deserves, with the final show and final song being played where it all began: Windsor, Ontario.
To commemorate this whole thing, our buddies at Juicebox and myself have decided to release 38 SWN songs on Juicebox Recording Co. so anyone that wants to remember SWN can download the “discography” and hold on to these songs for as long as you like.
So that’s it. End of this month it will all be over, once and for all. The four of us are super stoked to be doing this one last time. Thanks to all you guys who came out to shows back in the day, all the bands we ever partied with, and those of you who are still with us to this day. It’s been a fun ride, and now its done. For good this time.
