sabrinacarpenter: Tonight is the end of the beginning for us. My very first tour was the most memorable experience all thanks to you. Yes you, who sold out every single show, sang every lyric to EVOLution, danced even if you thought you weren’t good, cried as we sang shadows, twiddled your thumbs, heard me as I told you that you are beautiful no matter what they say. I felt at home in every city that I was not, just because of the fact that I was in a room full of love. Lovers of music, lovers like me. The thing I love about putting on these shows is everything is real. It’s right in front of me. We make real memories every night. You guys made this possible and I can’t thank you enough for making my first tour one I will NEVER forget. My crew and tour family, I love you- To everyone who’s along for the ride, 2017 is coming❤️ #evolutiontour

Doing it Right #23

Peyton’s POV

Since I told Jack about the pregnancy, things got significantly better in our lives. I returned to work after our Thanksgiving in Omaha while Jack and Johnson continued to plan their tour. They finally decided they wouldn’t start until April, when their European leg of the tour would begin. It landed that the tour would end in the beginning of August to ensure Jack would be home in time for when the baby would be born. The only thing left to plan was our wedding. The original date was supposed to be around October but we scratched that since our baby would only be a few months old, we couldn’t handle planning a wedding, too. Jack had suggested we just put the wedding on hold for a while, until we could figure things out. I agreed it was a smart idea.
“Hey babe, how was your day?” I asked Jack as he crawled into bed next to me.
He had been at the studio working late with Johnson and Nate. The three of them had a new song set to release before the tour.
“Long,” he mumbled as he laid down.
“I think we should get marry next week,” I suddenly said.
Jack had previously been tired but now he was wide awake. He sat up and looked at me.
“Next week?” He asked, his eyes wide.
I nodded.
“Next week.”
“Peyton, that’s hardly enough time to plan a wedding,” he said.
“I know, it’s crazy, but I want to.”
“Why? I thought we agreed to wait until after the baby was born?”
I sighed.
“It’s just, I don’t want to be fat and gross for our wedding, I want to feel beautiful and I haven’t started showing yet-”
Jack cut me off.
“You could never look fat and gross,” he told me.
“You know what I mean,” I pouted.
“Okay. Let’s do it,” he said.
I looked at him in surprise.
“Yes, if that’s what you want, then let’s do it, let’s get married next week!”
I flung my arms around him.
“I love you, I love you, I love you!” I giggled into his neck.
“Our moms are going to kill us,” he chuckled.
“I’ll go call them right now!” I said and crawled out of bed. “Goodnight, Jay, I love you, baby!”

Jack’s POV

Peyton blew me a kiss and scampered out of our room to go call our moms. I couldn’t help but smile as I rolled over to go to bed. She was crazy. But I loved it. Plus the thought of finally being married to the girl of my dreams in just a week, sounded pretty incredible. I decided I should let the boys know before I fell asleep. I picked up my phone and sent out a quick text. They were about to give me so much shit for it. I laughed at the thought and then put my phone down, I could wait for their responses until the morning.


When I woke up, I found the bed the way I fell asleep: empty. I looked over to see the time. It was around 10 am. I remembered it was Saturday morning so Peyton wasn’t working. Where could she be? Did she even go to sleep? I rubbed my eyes and crawled out of bed. I didn’t bother to put on a shirt so I walked downstairs in just my shorts. I found Peyton sitting at the dining room table surrounded by papers and her laptop.
“Well look at you,” I chuckled while walking over to kiss her head. “Did you come to bed last night?”
“Just for a quick nap,” Peyton answered, her eyes not leaving the computer screen once.
“Peyton that’s not good, you need your rest,” I told her while taking a seat in the chair across from her.
“I also have a wedding to plan!” She said, looking up to give me a smile.
“Fine, well let me help, what can I do?”
“You can shower and then pick our moms up from the airport.”
“They’re here?” I asked.
“Yes, they want to help with the planning,” Peyton explained.
I chuckled.
“You girls,” I said while standing up. “Sure, I’ll go pick them up.”
With that, I walked back upstairs to our room to get ready and tried to prepare myself for the chaotic week ahead.

Peyton’s POV

As I sat at the dining room table, I couldn’t believe how much there was to do. My head hurt and I was tired. I sighed and picked up my phone. I needed Grace.
“I’ll be there in ten,” she said to me once I explained everything.
A wave of relief rushed over me. Grace would be here soon and then Katherine and my mom. That was plenty of help. We would be able to plan a wedding in a week…right? I tried to not think about it or else I could seriously freak out. As I gave myself a break from scouring the Internet for a bakery, I decided to call Johnson.
“Johnson, it’s Peyton,” I said.
“Hi Pey, I hear you had the crazy idea of getting married in a week,” he laughed on the phone.
“That was me,” I giggled. “But listen, I’m going to need your help. You have to get the boys all fittings for their tuxes and plan Jack a bachelor party, okay?” I instructed him.
“Don’t worry, P, you can count on me. Just take care of all the other stuff, I’ll handle the boys.”
I smiled at Johnson’s words. He always had a way of comforting.
“Thank you, Johnson, I love you,” I told him.
“I love you too, Pey, now get back to planning!” He joked.
I hung up the phone and dove back into planning. This week was going to be a long one.

  • me: wild's only been out for over a month i can finally relax-
  • troye: *releases full version of talk me down and plans to drop the music video next week, announces preorder of October 15th for album and a release date of December 4th, sets up scavenger hunt for tickets in current tour date cities for people who missed out, is releasing new merch from his store every week, has a world tour that will begin by the end of this year, is generally just being the absolute best version of himself right now*
  • me: never mind

I wanted to write briefly to thank everyone for the overwhelming amount of messages we have all had over the last week, even the handful of people I’ve bumped into since the announcement. So many stories about little events and crossovers of significance our band has had, accidentally or otherwise, with you in the last ten years or so. It’s all truly appreciated and really re-affirmed what an amazing time it has been. So, thank you.

On a personal note, The Maccabees always meant the absolute world to me. It has given me incredible purpose and been the place where I have lived out what were childhood dreams. I am very grateful for that. We were what I considered to be as authentic a band as you could get, from putting a band together in a bedroom as teenagers and learning between ourselves, literally starting being totally unable to play, to making four albums, writing and recording everything ourselves from the beginning to the end, touring the world and making the band our lives into our thirties. Part of being in a group that works is just the coincidence of the right collection of people meeting each other at the right time. It’s that little thing that just makes a band it’s own and inimitable. I believe we had that.

It was far from unblemished and, as tends to happen when you are learning in public, there were a lot of calamities, which though at the time were mortifying, with hindsight, are just really funny. Personally, given the chance I probably would take back shouting ‘FELIX!” down the microphone to a very silent but very full Birmingham NIA (supporting Ben Folds, ten years ago) when asked by someone in the front row, ‘What’s your name?”, him just trying to point out we hadn’t told the crowd what the band were called yet. It’s one of many.

Amongst those though, we made some huge strides, laughed a lot and were part of some really special shows. In the early days they were chaotic, drunk and frenetic, and in the latter they felt fully attentive, impassioned and multi-dimensional. Though the nature of the shows changed quite dramatically across the years I, almost always, felt borderline euphoric on stage with the band, looking across and seeing my brother, for a while both brothers even, and friends I had grown up with playing this music we had made and that I loved. Of course, there were more than a handful of really average gigs, some of which I’m sure you witnessed yourselves, but there were also no doubt some really magical ones too. When you have been part of something like that it is an absolute buzz, a really unexplainable thing. I used to walk around still fuelled by them, on top of the world, for weeks after they happened. Just as valuable to me as those over time were the never-ending hours travelling on buses, sleeping on airport floors, generally waiting around and turning killing time into an art form on tour between all of us, road crew and whoever else happened to be there. I wouldn’t be surprised if the waiting around, having moaned about it pretty much for the duration, is the thing I miss the most once we have had distance.

There were long spells too when making a record felt so impossible that we were never going to get out of it sane. We poured so much detail into the writing and the making that over the 14 years we probably made less music than we could have done. Sometimes we just felt like we were going backwards for months. But we always got there, always finished with evolved music, something different from the last and a progression of where we had been, and those records always took us to new places too. It wasn’t for everyone. But I loved it all. I really, honestly did. It’s where I learnt to play guitar, write music and have lived out my entire adult life until now. I’d recommend being in a band to anyone. I feel like we did it on our own terms and always immersed ourselves really passionately into what our group stood for. It was a magical time.

I’m looking forward to what is next. We’ll wait and see exactly what that is whilst the dust settles. The future is a bit unknown, but then again, it kind of always is. Thank you again to all those that shared in any of the good times over the years!!! The farewell shows should be great I hope.

See you soon and lots of love,

*puts earphones in* sorry i can’t hear you *turns volume up to max* HERE COME THE DR0O0OONES


In the part where I get really sad, one of the nights at the beginning of the tour, I ended up putting my hand out, and this girl grabbed my hand. And all of a sudden, I started feeling all of these girls grabbing my hand, and it was just this moment of, kind of comforting me. And it’s a really vulnerable and emotional part of the song, I feel it every time I sing it, so for them to be holding my hand is really nice and it made me feel a little better. And so I just started putting my hand out every night and there’s something really, really cool, for me, in that connection. Holding somebody’s hand is such a personal thing, I really like that part of the show.

ViViD announces their disbandment.

ViViD, who will be holding a nationwide tour「THE BEGINNING of THE END」from next month onward announces that the final show『THE BEGINNING of THE END FINAL「CROSSING OF THE DREAM」』to be held at Pacifico Yokohama National Convention Hall on April 29th, 2015 will be their last live after which they will stop all activities.

After 6 years of band activities, this sudden announcement is definitely a shock for many fans. Or perhaps ViViD has actually already dropped the hint through the title of their new single「Thank you for all / From the beginning」- “Thank you for all” who have been supporting ViViD and “From the beginning” of their new lives and ventures.

Nevertheless, all the best to Shin, RENO, RYOGA, IV and Ko-ki.
