Andrew and Zach took to Twitter over the weekend to share a very long series of messages explaining the announcement.
“We definitely understand how you are feeling,” the boys wrote, stressing that “Restless Road isn’t over.” They explain that while Colton said “his heart wasn’t in the band” both Andrew and Zach are still totally committed to RR.
“Even though Restless Road will be different without Colton it doesn’t mean that we all can’t make it something special,” they continue. The two can’t reveal exactly what they have in the works but say they’re currently in Nashville and will have details “in the next couple days” to explain “how the two of us are planning on continuing.”
The breakup news comes on the heels of two other huge X Factor US announcements. First, Simon Cowell’s fleeing the country going to an exciting new opportunity at The X Factor UK. That’s great for him since the version here in the States isn’t actually a thing anymore. FOX gave X Factor the boot last week, meaning Season 3 is the last we’ll likely every have X.
The series’ last champs, Alex & Sierra, shared their thoughts on the end of Restless Road as they knew them. “Also sad to hear about @RestlessRdMusic but we'll always support them as individuals and in any decisions they make. love our brothers,” the duo tweeted.
Best luck to all three guys as they find their own roads to success!
