After over 11 years on the road, we’ve decided it’s time to take a break from touring.
As you probably know, touring as Red Molly is a full-time endeavor. While we truly love it, we are hankering to explore other projects, and to have more time for creative pursuits. All three of us have things we wanna do!
LAURIE! Laurie’s craving the time to dig into songwriting in a serious way, and she’s also fantasizing about a new solo album - it’s been over 10 years since her last one. Maybe she’ll make a record of duets with her favorite singers! She's also excited about the possibility of a daily yoga practice, and cooking delicious meals.
ABBIE! Abbie’s excited to write a slew of new songs for solo dobro and vocals. She's going to study Kelly Jo Phelps and other masters of the solo slide guitar, and see what kind of trouble she can get into on her own. An album and touring to follow, as well as sharing shows and sitting in with some of her favorite musicians.
MOLLY! Molly’s looking forward to more time for songwriting and finally taking percussion and keyboard lessons! She'll record another album and tour with Goodnight Moonshine - her duo project with husband Eben Pariser (of Roosevelt Dime). But first, Eben and Molly will expect the unexpected with their first baby due in September!
So, our last show in 2015 will be on August 25. At this time, we’re not sure how long the hiatus from touring will last.
We hope you know this, but we’ll say it anyway: There are no words to describe how grateful we are for you, our fans. Our beautiful careers would not be possible without you. You are the best, and we love you.
