NLT Breaks Up

NLT

Travis Garland of NLT checked in with fans on his blog at MySpace (@travisgarlandmusic) on Thursday (April 30), answering the question whether rumors of a break up of the boy band are true. Travis writes:

There’s no easy way to say it.. but yes. Unfortunately, the group is done. We aren’t together anymore.

Being in NLT has been a dream come true for me & I know it was for the other boys too. Thank you, all of you, for helping us to make that dream a reality.

As much as a few people might think the blame lies with one person, it doesn’t. It doesn’t rest on my shoulders. Just like it doesn’t rest on kevin’s. Just like it doesn’t rest on jj’s, or on v’s. There’s no sense in pointing the finger at anyone, because you have to understand that everyone involved wanted this to work & put their heart and soul into their efforts to make it work. Blaming someone may make you feel better about it.. but the simple fact is.. one singular person didn’t cause this. It took a complicated mess of things to break up NLT. The label wasn’t prepared to spend more money on the group. There was a legal situation holding us back. Kevin got a great opportunity that would require a lot of his time. At some point you have to sit back & evaluate the big picture. Where do we go from here? Given the situation.. we didn’t have many options. Sometimes it’s just not meant to be.

Hey Everyone!

As you guys might have heard our album has pushed back to a late spring/early summer release date. We really feel bad because all of you have been waiting so long!! We decided to push the release date back because most of our songs were leaked all over the internet. So, instead of putting out an album most of you have heard, we went back in the studio to record some new songs, which happen to be our favorite!!! We’ve advanced as artists & songwriters & we really feel like it’s the best work we’ve done so far. We’re so excited for everyone to hear it & deeply sorry for the long wait!!!

The NEW SINGLE will be out within the month & soon after that the album will be out!!!!!!

Thank you for all the continued support & patience!!! The album will be out sooner than you know it!
