Finch Break Up, Members' New Group Release First Song


Finch have broken up for a third time after frontman Nate Barcalow has once again quit the group. The news comes as the new band featuring three members of Finch along with Senses Fail's Buddy Nielsen release their first single.

The new group, called Speak the Truth... Even If Your Voice Shakes, was announced back in May and features Finch's Alex Pappas (drums), Alex Linares (guitar), and Daniel Wonacott (guitar). Late last week they revealed their first single "Crash My Car", which can be streamed here.

Finch released the following statement last week about their break up, "Within the last 10 years Finch has only released ONE full length album... That can't be understated. In 2009, Nate walked away from an album and quit. Yesterday, Nate quit again, for the third time in the bands history (2004, 2009, & 2016).

"We all knew it was coming, it was not a shock. In 2015 we wrote a batch of songs, but did not have a completed album. We entered the studio with a producer friend of ours to work on some material that would complete the album and begin pre-production on the songs we already had. Nate was a no show for the majority of these sessions and chose to stop communicating with the band in January 2016.

"Throughout 2016 there have been tour offers we've had to pass on, festival appearances we've passed on because we were unable to reach Nate. I think it is important for Finch fans to know that we've always had the best intentions, we always strove to create the best songs we could, but you cannot control other peoples' behavior. Nate's choice to quit again is disappointing, but not unexpected.

"We're really proud of the last two songs we recorded as a band. In Nate's mind the stylistic change was enough to throw away his career. We just thought they were great Finch songs. We've posted both them on the Finch youtube channel, and hope you enjoy them. Cheers everybody! We'll see y'all next year for the What It Is To Burn 15 year anniversary tour! -Grizzly, Daniel, and Pappas" Check out the songs here.
