by Michelle Wilding in New Music on Friday 8 April 2011

Wednesday April 6th marked a sad day in Australian music history. The Sydney indie boys of Red Riders have decided to part ways after eight years of rocking out. And while a sinking feeling entered my heart upon hearing that one of my favourite bands will no longer make music together, I wish them all the best.

Read Red Rider’s last words on their Tumblr. Although there’s mention of possible farewell gigs in Melbourne and Sydney, I wouldn’t miss the foursome hitting the stage for the last time as support for Children Collide’s national tour kicking off later this month. We’ll miss you!
