Yep, that’s right. The band Pacific Air called it quits (for now). Member Ryan Marshall Lawhon has a solo project in the works called Mating Rituals. Here is what he said about the new project:
Mating Ritual is alive and here to stay, independent and eager to mark out it’s own corner in the seemingly endless ocean that is the modern music community.
Mating Ritual is my first completely solo project, and I’ve spent the better part of a year working (mostly) by myself in a dark cave in the Valley to craft these tunes. With previous musical projects, I have always put rules on my songwriting to preserve some (possibly false) sense of continuity with myself. For Mating Ritual I let these hesitations dissolve and allowed the songs to go where they needed to, resulting in the most explosive, beautiful, textural and honest songs that I have been a part of, baby.
