Motion City Soundtrack: - World legend!!! So Long, Farewell Tour - 2016.
Motion City Soundtrack is an American rock band from Minneapolis, Minnesota, formed in 1997. The band last line-up consists of founding members Justin Pierre (lead vocals and guitar) and Joshua Cain (lead guitar and backing vocals), along with keyboardist and moog synthesist Jesse Johnson, bassist and backing vocalist Matthew Taylor, and drummer, percussionist and backing vocalist Claudio Rivera. Motion City Soundtrack has released six studio albums and sold almost 600,000 records throughout the group's career, including over half a million in the United States alone.
Motion City Soundtrack's first release was a 7" single, "Promenade/Carolina", in 1999. The following year the group released its debut EP, Kids for America, and then a second, Back to the Beat. The band released its debut album I Am the Movie twice in 2002. The group's first five releases were all self-released with the aid of a small record label. Backed up by the band's constant touring it fashioned them a fast-growing fan base, and a signing with Epitaph Records. After spending the first five years of the group finding the right lineup, the Epitaph re-issue of I Am the Movie in 2003 was the band's big break. First major single "The Future Freaks Me Out" arrived with live and television success, but failed in radio airplay and the charts. 2003 and 2004 brought three Split EPs alongside Schatzi, Limbeck and Matchbook Romance. The second album, Commit This to Memory, has been the group's most successful album to date, selling 285,000+ records and peaking at number two on the Independent Albums chart.
The band released its third full-length album Even if It Kills Me in 2007. The album debuted at number 16 on the Billboard 200 and number one on the Independent Albums chart. It produced singles "Broken Heart", "This Is for Real" and "It Had to Be You", which all received television airplay. Motion City Soundtrack released a fourth album entitled My Dinosaur Life in January 2010, which debuted at number 15 on the Billboard 200. It is the group's first album released on Columbia, a major record label. Motion City Soundtrack's fifth studio album, Go, was released June 12, 2012. The group's sixth album, Panic Stations, was released on September 18, 2015. On March 11, 2016, the group announced an indefinite hiatus.
