As previously reported, No Justice’s split will become official as of Thursday, when the band “will be taking a hiatus from touring and recording, so that each individual can pursue separate endeavors,” lead singer/songwriter/acoustic guitarist Steve Rice said in a statement released last month via social media.
“It has been 12 years since the creation of No Justice. Throughout this time we have shared music, laughter, tears and our hearts with each other. It has been an amazing and life-changing ride that very few get to experience and we couldn’t have asked for better people to share it with,” Rice said in the statement.
“While some will continue to play music, others will take a different avenue. We want to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for your dedication to our lifelong dream and for allowing us to pour our hearts out on the stage every night in venues across the world. We can’t begin to tell you how much your support has meant to us.”
No Justice was one of the few Red Dirt acts still based in Stillwater, the birthplace of the eclectic sound and close-knit scene. As a fan of the Red Dirt scene and sound, I’m sad to see them go.
