Portland-based Sallie Ford & the Sound Outside have announced that they will play their final two shows as a band in Portland, Dec. 20 and 21.
According to the band, the breakup came as a mutual decision and there are no hard feelings. Ford will continue to tour and release new material with a new all-female band, while other members plan on taking a break from music in their hometown of Portland.
The band released a statement on their Facebook page yesterday announcing the split.
“Hey, everybody. There will be changes for us in 2014.
Sallie Ford & The Sound outside have decided to break up and head their separate ways. It is a mutual decision and there are no hard feelings or ill will between any of us.
We still love and support each other in whatever we do.
You can expect to see more from Sallie in 2014, as she’s been writing for a new record. She is keeping her name in a new project and starting an all-girl band with some really talented local ladies, us guys are excited to see them churn out the hits, so keep your ears peeled…Please come out and celebrate with us for our last two Portland shows at the Doug Fir December 20th and 21st…”
The band recently released their third album Untamed Beast earlier this year, and plans to sell their last piece of recorded material, the Summer EP, at their final show in Portland.
