If you haven't already assumed that The Click Five had parted ways a long time ago, then you probably have already seen the band's split coming. Yes, The Click Five have officially parted ways, stating their reason that "After a long hiatus, we are parting ways so that we may continue to focus on our individual endeavors." You can read the band's full statement about the split here.
They may not have been as active in their later years, but you have to admit that at one point of time in your life (probably around 2005 to 2008), The Click Five was your jam. Let's take a walk down memory lane with some of the band's biggest hits!
Just The Girl (2005)
The band debuted with the album Greetings from Imrie House in 2005 with then-lead singer, Eric Dill. If I may, The Click Five then is exactly like what One Direction is now. Girls were crazy over them and every radio station played their singles such as Just The Girl and Catch Your Wave over and over again.
Happy Birthday (2007)
2007 saw the band releasing their sophomore album, Modern Minds and Pastimes, with their new lead singer, Kyle Patrick. The best album by the band, in my opinion, with some of their best tracks as part of it.
Don't Let Me Go (2010)
The band released their third and last album, TVC, in 2010.
I fondly remember back in the same year when I attended the band's free showcase cum meet-and-greet session at Scape. It was during my 'O' level period but I skipped my non-compulsory revision class to attend it with a friend. We wore our uniforms there because it was a last minute decision. It was awesome (ALTHOUGH I HIGHLY DO NOT RECOMMEND ANYONE DOING THE SAME).
I even got my poster signed by all 5 members which I still keep till today :'-)
Here at Spin Or Bin Music, we wish Kyle Patrick, Joe Guese, Ethan Mentzer, Ben Romans and Joey Zehr all the best on their future endeavors. I'm not sure about the rest of the band members but I'm sure we'll be seeing a lot of Kyle Patrick in near future, especially within the Southeast Asia region.
And although I wasn't particularly sad when I first read about the band's split, now that the news is finally sinking in, I'm kind of starting to feel a little... empty.
