We’ve had a fun 3+ years doing DeepestSighs.com, but our little team of three has decided it’s time to close up shop. We’ll continue to update the tour setlists on the site through the Sydney gig on August 22, and that’ll be it.
I don’t want to put words in Chris’s or Erik’s mouths, so just speaking for myself: Running a fan site for your fave band is a lot of fun, but it’s also a lot of work. To do it right, which we’ve always tried to do, you have to pay attention to both the band and the fans pretty much 24/7/365. That’s how you find out what’s going on, so you can report it and share it with the fans in your reading audience. For me, it’s recently started to feel more like a job and less like a fun hobby…like something I have to do instead of something I want to do. That tells me it’s time to stop and just be a fan again.
All three of us are and will continue to be huge fans of the band; that has nothing to do with it. (I can’t wait to see a couple shows on the upcoming North American tour!)
If you have any interest in taking over DeepestSighs.com — the whole site, or even just the tour dates/setlists — we’re open to that idea. Drop us a note. We’d love to see someone who loves the band keep what we’ve started alive. But if that doesn’t happen, that’s okay, too.
I think I DO speak for Chris and Erik when I say this: Thank you for following us, for reading us, for connecting with us, and for the kind words you’ve shared about DeepestSighs.com. It’s been fun. ❤️💪
