Emo Punks Transit Announce Breakup
For 10 years, Boston’s emo-leaning indie rockers Transit have brought the feels to fans the world over and soundtracked the teenage years of every suburban kid longing to leave their hometown.
Evidently after all this time the band still know how to hit us with a fresh set of feels, because seemingly out of nowhere they have announced their breakup, calling it quits on a career that spanned five full-length records and countless international tour dates.
Following the news of their split, the five-piece announced the fittingly titled “I’m Getting Good At Saying Goodbye” tour, alerting fans to five final tour dates along the US east coast. Meanwhile, you’ll catch the members of the Australian emo squad crying into a pile of black T-shirts.

A letter to all who have shed blood, sweat, and tears with us over the last decade:
After ten years of writing, recording, and living on the road, it is time for us to close this current chapter on Transit, as we have decided to direct our energy into other aspects of our lives.
Since 2006 we’ve been given the incredible opportunity of sharing our music with the world, performing in over 14 different countries, and circling our own countless times.
Through all the ups and downs we have witnessed a side of humanity so caring and sincere that we now see the world in a vivid and magnificent light.
As for us as individuals, we will always love each other and the records we wrote together. We love all of you for lending an ear and losing your voices with us.
We will always be able to say that we had the best fans a band could possibly ask for. When we think about the road we’ll see all the faces and friends fly by in one big warm blur. Your stories and kind words helped push us along more than you may ever know.
April 21st to April 26th we will be performing an array of mixed songs from over the years at our final shows as a band. We have chosen some of our favorite intimate clubs to put this to rest at.
We never expected a few basement shows to turn into ten years of traveling the world, playing the songs we love. For that we will always be forever grateful. We love you all and thank you.
Nothing lasts forever.
Daniel, Joseph, Brandon, PJ, Torre
