Following the break-up, Man Overboard took part in an interview with Alternative Press where Man Overboard guitarist Justin Collier spoke about the future of the band.
Collier stated “Today’s my 27th birthday, and I’m the youngest guy in the band. It’s either we can do this forever—well, I don’t think it’s realistic to do it forever—but one day you wake up a certain age and go, “I don’t know what I want to do for the rest of my life.” When other people are nurturing new things in their lives, you need to nurture those things like you did the band when the band started. Everybody still loves doing the band, but right now we’re just focusing on some other things. But we’ll be back, whether that’s a full U.S. tour or some holiday shows in a year or two.”
Perhaps we can expect a Man Overboard reunion in the near future? Only time will tell.
