Nashville, TN (July 17, 2012) --- As the old saying goes….all good things must come to an end. It was announced today by Downhere that the band will end their music ministry in January 2013 with a final tour this fall. Dates will be announced in the near future. Statement from Downhere:

Hello friends,
It is with many memories and deep feelings that we relay to you the decision we have made over the course of the last year. January 1, 2013 will mark the end of our traveling ministry for the foreseeable future.

It has become very clear to us that this chapter of our journey, initiated by God, is drawing to a close. While we mourn the end of this season we also celebrate over a decade of ministry. It has been hard work and our families have paid a big price. The friends, songs, experiences, and lives changed as a result of hearing the truth of God's love has sustained us through many years and miles.

For those of you who know us well you know that this is not a band breakup. In fact, we are open to playing a select few shows or events in the future. After many years and miles spent together we have become a band of brothers who love each other dearly. There is not one single variable that has initiated this change; rather it would seem the same sovereign hand that has guided us together for this season is now leading us in different directions. We are grateful for the role everyone has played in our lives. Your encouragement and support over the years has carried us through thick and thin.

We have always wanted to finish well. We believe that means finishing together, as a band... and that is what we are going to do. We are working on setting up a few wrap-up shows this fall. More information will be forthcoming as things get solidified.

Sincerely,
Jason, Marc, Glenn, & Jeremy

Downhere's final album for Centricity Music is their current project On The Altar Of Love, received rave reviews with TheFish.com saying, "Plain and simple, this is a band that knows how to write to its strengths and play its songs to the hilt, and this is an album worth acclaim." Downhere has enjoyed great chart success over the years as "Here I Am" and "Hope Is Rising" peaked at #5 and #17 on the AC charts, while "My Last Amen" peaked at #5 on the CHR charts. All of the songs are from Downhere's previous project Ending Is Beginning that media heralded as their strongest studio album at that time. Downhere released their first Christmas project in 2009, based on the enormous success of "How Many Kings" that peaked at #4 on the charts. Also during their illustrious twelve-year career, Downhere has garnered 13 Covenant Awards, 4 Juno Awards and a Dove Award for Modern Rock Recorded Song of the Year. The group's most recent Covenant awards were for Song of the Year (Let Me Rediscover You) and Pop/ Contemporary Album of the Year (Two At A Time). Two At A Time was released in the summer of 2010 and had two new songs plus B-sides, including the single, "You're Not Alone."
