Will then added, "Thank you to anyone who's come out to AF shows, or bought a record, or loves our music. It's meaningful to be part of your lives. Thank you to the crew, staff, management, label people, bands, artists, and friends who have helped bring our vision to life for so many years. The band are still my friends and family".
