Old news now really - since this was announced on facebook early Tuesday afteroon (UK time):
 
"A very good afternoon to you one and all, I hope you are well? I promise to keep what we are about to say very short, sweet and to the point. It is with a very heavy heart that we impart the following bit of news - The Reasoning have decided to call it day. We part in the knowledge that we have achieved many wonderful and great things as a band and as individuals but, the time has come to be honest and realise that as a musical group, we have explored as much as we can. Though we have enjoyed our journey with you immensely, we have also had occasions where it seemed so tough to carry on and as we approach the 3rd anniversary of the disappearance of our dear friend Owain, this seems like the right time to gently put the band to bed.

We want to thank all the bands, press and fans for the amazing loyalty, support and love. We have done many incredible things, been to many amazing places and played to so many amazing people. Our music lives on with you and in our hearts. This is not the last you will hear of us as musicians but I'm afraid, it is the last you will hear from us as a band. We are all parting on good terms and with firm friendships established. This is a decision we all feel is the best thing for the band and its musical legacy.

Thank you all once again, you will never know how much we truly love you all. Be well, take care and we'll all see you on the road sometime soon. "The View From Where I Stand Begins To Change, Something Is Happening To Me......."

The Reasoning xxxxx

PS The main website will remain online until the domain name expires so, please feel free to pop over. Please be aware, this will be our last announcement xx

That's Touchstone and The Reasoning both gone in the same week.  Cry

Oh, that's very sad news....I was spinning a few of their albums just the other day and quietly thought `Hmmm, been a while since I've heard any news about the Reasoning...

Thanks for posting this, David.

But now I must ask...

WHat about Touchstone?!?! I didn't know anything about that either!!

Rachel in Touchstone. There's an idea!

This was sad news, but not entirely unexpected. They never really recovered from Owain's disappearance.


In Lazland, life is transient. Prog is permanent.

Bummer, PA introduced me to them.  They will be missed.

Released date are often when it it impacted you but recorded dates are when it really happened...

Sad news, I knew they were taking an extended break as they were having trouble coming up with new materiel but didn't expect them to call it quits, but I agree with Lazland that they never really fully recovered from the loss of Owain.

One of the best live bands I've seen, they were always very entertaining.

Stranger things have happened...and it does seem a bit of a coincidence that Kim has decided to step down just three days after Rachel became a free agent... 
 
 
...It would certainly work!! Tongue
