This Condition has announced their farewell. They will be performing two final shows (April 19 Toquet Hall Westport CT, April 28 Highline Ballroom NYC) and disbanding. On a good note, the band will also be releasing a new record on April 23, 2013.
It's not easy to write this message. We can't begin to express how grateful we are for the support that we have received over the past 6 years. Yeah... 6 years.

We played our first show in March of 2007 at a venue called Noche Blue on Long Island. We had no clue what we were doing or where this band would take us. Fast forward to 2013 and we have played more than 250 shows in 40 states. We've been lucky enough to open for some of our musical...

Aficionado have broken up.
It saddens me deeply to announce that after almost 9 years of playing together, Aficionado has officially broken up.

Since I was a kid, all I ever wanted to do was live the "band life"…revolve everything around music, do nothing but create, record, and then get in a van, travel around and play shows with my friends. For the past couple of years that was my life and I'm really grateful for that experience.

Thanks so much to Chris Hansen of No Sleep Records for taking a chance on us. Thanks to Phil Battiato at the Agency Group for working his ass off and getting us on a bunch of awesome tours. Thanks to anyone who ever cared about what we were doing, all...

Streetlight Manifesto have gone on hiatus from touring.
Today, it's time to announce to our fans and friends that we're turning the last page of this particular chapter of our lives. We've solidified plans to tour our well-traveled asses off for one last year, until the end of 2013, at which time we will be not necessarily be moving on from the band, but changing our approach to what we do with the majority of our time. More specifically, we will no longer be touring year round, nor will we be touring much at all anymore. We have decided to step away from the table before we get sick of our favorite meal; we've seen enough bands over the years grow old playing the same songs for...

Trapped Under Ice are going on a "pretty lengthy hiatus" after their shows this summer.
Hello World. TUI here. We're writing to give everyone an update on the future of the band. Let's get straight to the point: Beginning in August 2013, Trapped Under Ice is going on a pretty lengthy hiatus. We are NOT breaking up. This is by no means the end of TUI. We just decided that it was important to keep the band fresh and something the five of us enjoy. We don't wanna spin the wheels for nothing and just write music because we feel like we have to. We don't really feel right about just putting out another record for the sake of touring right now. So, while its still fun, we're gonna go on a...

We Are the Union have broken up.
We’ve decided to take a hiatus from active status. This does indeed mean we will not be playing Block Party in New Orleans. Usually this type of announcement would be accompanied by a longwinded rant about how unique our struggle was, how every ending is a new beginning, or something else equally stupid and bullshitty. I’d rather just leave it at this:

We were a band. Maybe someday we will be again. We’ve had some amazing times, and we truly appreciate those of you who’ve contributed to our existence. We’ve never been a supercool hype band or uberpunx beardy band, so we thank each and every one of you who listened to our music over the...

An all female band in Kashmir were forced to break-up after a fatwa was declared on them by a senior cleric who stated, "Shameful incidents like gang rapes, that happened in Hindustan recently, are a result of all this. It happens when women are given freedom to roam around, sing and dance."
The members of Pragaash, a Kashmiri word that means "from darkness to light," have been the subject of escalating threats in the past month. The girls, 16-year-old vocalist Noma Nazir, drummer Farah Deeba, and guitarist Aneeka Khalid, both age 15, formed their trio at a music institute where they all took classes after school.

Bleeding Through frontman Brandan Schieppati has confirmed the band is breaking up. They will disband following farewell tours later this year.
StatementWhen you have some success doing something that you love, you never really think about writing a statement about that something coming to an end. Well, that dream that we have had as Bleeding Through has come to an end. I think I can speak for the rest of my bandmates in saying that we always hoped it would end on our terms, and it has. We have been fortunate to have a strong fan base worldwide and have brought joy to many and pissed off many more.

Bleeding Through was always a band that wore the emotion of the music on our sleeves....

Former Thieves are calling it quits. You can read a full statement from the band in the replies.
From The BandThe actual difficulty of being a band transcends location, privilege, ultimate goals, or musical ability. It's staying a band. That's the hard part. As a band progresses and time moves on, there is a lot of life happening in the periphery. It gets to be a lot to balance. The task becomes how well you can keep one foot planted in two polarized worlds, without getting completely lost in the tap-dancing act of making a home life and a band life work. There's no easy way to say this, but that's where we as Former Thieves have become exhausted.

WU LYF has seemingly broken up. A new track titled "T R I U M P H" was posted on YouTube with a message from singer Ellery James Roberts.

Hit the replies to hear the new song and read the full and detailed message posted alongside it.
From The StatementWU LYF is dead to me. The sincerity of "Go tell fire" was lost in the bull shit of maintaining face in the world we live. Clap your hands chimp everybody's watching. A year spent losing faith; Innocence lost wide eyes see clear the dark. There's blood running down streets of every city in the world,...

From Nick MooreThe Finale. This will be the final chapter in the Before Their Eyes book. I started this band one night out of boredom sitting in my bedroom one night on township road 94 in Findlay, Ohio back in 2006. I never in my wildest of dreams thought we would travel the world playing hundreds of shows to thousands upon thousands of people. I have no regrets. I had some of the highest & lowest points of my life in this band. It really helped me find myself. I appreciate EVERY SINGLE one of you for supporting me and making me feel so special. Meeting you all was really the highlight...

Dr. Acula have broken up.
StatementsBill Graffeo: "After almost 8 years the band named Dr.Acula will be put to rest. Being the only original member that was left, it is very sad for me to actually have to say this. Dr.Acula started off as a joke back in 2005. Over the years we kept our sense of humour and pissed off many people. I have nothing but love and respect for ALMOST everyone that's ever been a part of DA. Especially my brother Kevin who saved this band on many occasions. I had quit the band a little less than a month ago. I had some personal problems of my own holding me back from continuing with DA. Most importantly I could not handle the 'sketchy' things some people...

He informed us that he desired to make his family and career the primary focus of his life and with this part ways with Lifestory: Monologue. Although a deep sadness was our first reaction (Richard and I cried together on my porch for a good half hour) we’ve all come to respect and honor this decision. It was and is the right one. Shortly afterwards, the remaining five of us unanimously agreed that this...

After 30 years together, Chumbawamba are breaking up.
From the StatementWe felt we’d got to a point where what we did as a band – and specifically the writing, recording, touring cycle – wasn’t doing justice to what Chumbawamba set out to do in the first place. We were always as much about ideas as music, and that meant doing more than writing, recording and touring songs. It meant trying to be relevant and active and up-to-date, while trying to avoid the dreaded rut of routine or repetition. being up-to-date meant giving plenty of time and energy to the band, constantly, for those thirty years; a constancy we plainly couldn’t keep up with in the end.
