Enough people have been asking me what’s going on with The New¬†Bedfords so I figured I’d just draft a statement to keep everyone informed. Over the last few months we, as individuals, have gotten very busy with our personal lives. Being adults with jobs, finding time to be The New Bedfords has been becoming increasingly difficult.

Does this mean we’re done?

Far from it.

While we have still had the time to come together for a live act we haven’t been able to work on that much new material, which is what this time off is for.

We put out ‘Enough To Break The Ice’ a little over the year ago and while playing those songs and a handful of the new ones we’ve written since then has been great would be uncouth of us to just keep touring those songs when we know for our sake, and yours, we can be better.

On a personal note I want to thank everyone has come seen us live so far and supported us in any way you have. It’s been great seeing people I know (and even better, people I don’t) singing along to songs I was in a part of writing. It means a lot to me that our fans paid attention to us when we were around, but it means even more when you noticed we went missing.

In the meantime we’ll try to keep posting some videos, lyrics, and media of us working on whatever we are now to keep everyone up to date. We’re not totally sure when we’ll be back but we have some plans to come back full force. We tested the waters and soon it will be time to dive right in.

In the meantime, check out this acoustic version of Divided done by Ali and me on Indie Rebellion (

We’ll be sure to stay in touch.
