EOTO Breaks Up Due To ‘Irreconcilable Creative Differences’
Jason Hann and Michael Travis remain band mates in The String Cheese Incident.
EOTO, a livetronica duo featuring members of The String Cheese Incident, has broken up. Michael Travis and Jason Hann announced “due to irreconcilable creative differences we will no longer be appearing as EOTO” on the band’s social media pages.
Travis and Hann formed EOTO in 2006, one year after Jason joined The String Cheese Incident. EOTO was known for their improv-heavy, EDM-tinged performances which often came late at night.

Hi guys! We hope everyone is thriving in these uncertain times. What a life changing passage this has been! We have recently had numerous questions about when we might appear again and we wanted to clear that up. Due to irreconcilable creative differences we will no longer be appearing as EOTO. Thank you for all your love and support over the years! What an amazing and beautiful ride! We will cherish this chapter forever!
