Nick Deturris of Push Play checked in with fans on the pop rock group’s blog at MySpace (@pushplayrox) on Sunday (February 7), the second of the four members to give a farewell speech as they head to college and put the band on ice, perhaps permanently. Nick writes:
To all of our fans:
These past four years have been the time of my life and I will never forget all the great memories and friends that were made along this crazy journey. When Push Play first began when we were all 15 and 16 years old, all we wanted to do was write music and play shows. I don’t think any of us could have anticipated how far we would come in a few short years. At the age of 20 I can honestly say that I feel accomplished in all that we have done. We lived the dream and we got to do what almost no other teenager could say they have done. How many people can say they got to tour the country, or play shows for a bunch of fans, or have a song on the radio? The list can go on forever, but unfortunately all great things must come to an end, or a least a pause. That is why we have decided to go back to school and attend college. We feel that it is the right time to go back. I will miss playing shows for all of you and hanging out after with everyone. You are the best fans any band could ever ask for and I am proud to call every single one of you my friend. Thank you for your continued support throughout the years and thank you all for being understanding of this hard decision. I hope Push Play will always be a part of your hearts, I know that you all will always be a part of mine.
Love, your friend
