Voxtrot split up, book farewell tour

Voxtrot split up, book farewell tour

You remember Voxtrot… right? Oh, they’re still around, but not for long. The creators of such alt-pop tunes as “Kid Gloves” and “Mothers, Sisters, Daughters, & Wives” had their heyday in 2006-2007, back when blog buzz was still the hot new thing. But alas, all good things… you know.

After just one full-length album and a handful of EPs, Austin-based Voxtrot are calling it quits after embarking on a short farewell tour bitterly titled “Goodbye Cruel World.” Voxtrot’s frontman Ramesh Srivastava wrote on the band’s website: “The career path of Voxtrot was truly one of long, simmering build, explosion, and almost instantaneous decay. Slowly, I am learning to replace any feelings of regret with positive memories of how amazing the whole thing was, and how it has, in an unexpected way, fortified my character.” Awww… goodbye cruel (coughmusicindustrycough) world, indeed!
