“Is this site still active?”, you ask.

I may go further into this over a series of posts, but to answer this question briefly: kind of. In the fall of 2022 I found myself very burned out from trying to extend the reach of EnD to play more regionally, constantly shift and change our set, and, more personally, eat healthier, drink less, and sleep more. Something had to give.

EnD’s show on May 6th, 2023 at Ziggy’s in Ypsi, with Access to Concrete and DJ’s Remnant and Wraith, would be our final show. Please don’t look for that show on the Bandcamp site. It was recorded but I couldn’t bring myself to mix it. To say I was unhappy would be an understatement as my creativity died that night on the stage. I’ve made half hearted attempts at making music a few times over 2023 but I’ve not produced anything useful.

So here we are in 2024, still staring at a bunch of equipment, occasionally picking up a guitar or bass to run scales and keep my calluses rather than actually create anything. I’m taking a break. I’m focusing on my personal life (or selectively avoiding it depending on your view). We’ll see what 2024 brings.
