While Donald Trump winning the election probably isn’t the actual reason for this breakup, we gotta blame someone for the demise of the Presidents of The United States of America. Like, the band, not like the people who have run the states. The guys put up a status on their Facebook page saying:
Dear PUSA fans…
You may have noticed that PUSA has been quiet since the summer of 2015 and here is why…we are no longer functioning as a band. Call it what you will but we have quietly retired from the PUSA business since we are OLD PEOPLE NOW! “Never say never” is a good motto in these cases however we wanted to let you all officially know what is up so you don’t have to fret or wonder. Thanks for all the singing and clapping and happy times and WE LOVE YOU!
PS – (a little later) THANK YOU PEEPS! for all the nice notes and thoughts! It is not REALLY that we are OLD…it is just time to move on is all…creative interests change and mutate and I am just trying to follow my instincts and do what thrills me most and part of that is moving on from the loud rock band sound…
