Sad news  this week as one of our favorite bands, Some Hear Explosions, has called it  quits after five years together.   Bay Dariz wrote on their Facebook page on Monday: 
"I know you haven't heard from us for awhile, so I thought it was time to fill everyone in on what's going on with us. 
When Ambre and I started writing music together nearly 5 years ago, we didn't even know if we would become a band, release any music, or play any shows. It was just about creating, and I think we created something great together! Of course, we did indeed become a band, release an album, and play shows all over the country. 
The best part of the whole experience is meeting all of you, either in person or on social networks. Your support has meant the world to us! Creations become much more meaningful when you have someone to share them with, and we could not have asked for a better audience than you. 
The best explanation of what happened is simply that this band had run its course. We all became more interested in doing different things and focusing on other aspects of our lives. No crazy drama. We’re still friends :) 
We hope you continue to support us in all of our new endeavors as we support each other! We will be using this space to tell you about new projects and we hope you enjoy them. 
I have been very busy in the last few months! I produced a feature film called “Pretty Perfect” that will be playing festivals next year, started a new band called The Secondhand Lions with my friend/collaborator Oliver Thompson, and started producing and developing a super talented new artist named Laura Maust. I hope that you love and support these projects as much as you did for SHE over the years."
