The Chariot is calling it a career.  The Atlanta, GA based band has announced that after a decade making music together, its members have decided that the band had run its course.  In the words of the band’s front man and founder Josh Scogin, “Having enjoyed 10 wonderful years of playing shows, it just feels like the right time to cross that finish line.  The Chariot was never put on this earth to “overstay our welcome.”  I believe we did exactly what we came to do, and now it is time to move onward.  Thank you.”  This was part of the statement released by the band via YouTube titled, “All’s Well That Ends Well.”  The full statement can be viewed here:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bFye6KDNuVI&feature=youtu.be

In coordination with this statement, the band has also announced an extensive Farewell Tour that will kick off October 10th in Columbia, South Carolina.  The band will make two stops in North Carolina on its Farewell tour; one on October 11th in Charlotte, North Carolina and one on October 12th in Greensboro, NC.  A full listing of the upcoming tour is available below.  The band will be joined by Glass Cloud, Birds in a Row, and To The Wind on a number of the band’s dates.
