Twiddle set to commence ‘DISTANCE MAKES THE HEART’ TOUR

Article Contributed by gratefulweb | Published on Tuesday, January 10, 2023

After 18 years of touring, Twiddle has announced that they will take an indefinite hiatus after 2023. In addition to announcing over 20 shows in 2023, the band’s lead singer and guitarist Mihali Savoulidis penned this letter to fans, explaining the band’s decision:

I come to you all with a heavy heart today to share a tough but important announcement. With the support of my bandmates, we are making  the difficult decision to take an indefinite hiatus as a band starting in 2024 after 18 years of being on the road.

In times like these, I believe that change is necessary for creative growth and proper reflection.

Music has engulfed my life ever since I was 14 years old, and since then I've devoted every part of myself to it. Twiddle in particular has been my life’s focus since college, and the band & crew members have been like brothers to me.

I’ve now come to a crossroads in life where I feel I'm being pulled in many different directions. I need to make the right choice for me and for my family. I feel that now is the time to make a much needed change to gain a different perspective on life and focus my creative energy elsewhere.

We are so blessed to have been able to live out our dreams because of you and your support. Without all of you, none of this would have been possible. I wouldn't trade a second of this experience for anything. So from the bottom of my heart and with all my love, thank you so much for everything. The Twiddle community really feels like a big family and the amount of kindness and love that you have shown us and each other over the years has been nothing but inspiring. I am so proud to have been a part of it.

With that being said, 2023 will be the band's last year of touring for the foreseeable future. Please come celebrate the incredible community we have all built together during this next year and we hope to see all of you at least one more time.  More shows for 2023 will be announced in the coming months, and we can't wait to celebrate each and every night throughout this tour with you.

This isn’t the end, it's just goodbye for now.

All our love and gratitude
