So, I guess we've been putting this off. A lot of you already know but I reckon you should get it from us directly. May 25th, 2013, 25 Minutes To Go is playing our last show. No Joke. No gimmick. This is happening. After this year's ninja party in January AJ told us he was moving to Nashville and subsequently left just a couple weeks later. Needless to say, we were blindsided by this decision and weren't left with a whole lot of options that worked for us. We decided that instead of going through the rigors of searching for and training, yet another, new band member we opted to hang it up. Any of you who are close to us know that we didn't make this decision lightly and trust me when I say, no one is more disappointed than we are. We've been in this band for the better part of a decade and it's meant more to me, Kyle, and Trey than you can probably imagine...probably more than it was healthy. We feel like something has been taken from us and we never even imagined that it would be taken from us by one of our own. Live and learn I suppose. Instead of us just fading away and not getting a say in how this ends we've decided to put together a really special night for all of you and for ourselves. We'll be joined on stage by Andy Wilson once again for a final performance that's gonna blow your friggin' minds. We'll be playing a marathon set of a ton of songs off of all of our records. We'll be giving away tons of merchandise including t-shirts, cd's, hats, and all sorts of one of a kind items that we've accumulated over the years. 25 Minutes To Go may be a band that we've created and cultivated over the years but it doesn't belong to just us. This is your band as well. Many of you have put in a lot of time, sweat, and heart and we don't want you to feel like it has gone unnoticed. If it weren't for all of you there's no way we would have made it this long and been able to do half of what we've enjoyed doing. We'll be joined that night on the bill by our closest brothers and long time allies the SouthSide Punx and our friends from Atlanta, PPR, who are doing a rare reunion performance for this night alone. More performances will be announced soon. This is going to be a great night so please come out and enjoy it with us...it's for you. We love you guys so much and thank you for everything. This has been the greatest experience and one of the most important blessings in my life. Remember...Legends never die. Keep livin' the dream.

Welcome to the new official 25 minutes to go site!!! with the unreliability of modern and trendy social networking sites...we decided we should have a place where you can get info from us without having to login and remember to quickly turn off the chat feature before your grandma sends you an instant message. so here you are. this site will be updated regularly by members of the band so check back often!
