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...

Lifestory: Monologue is breaking up. Information about a final tour, a farewell EP and more can be found in the statement below.
Statement from the BandYes, it’s true. 2012 will be Lifestory: Monologue’s final year.
This summer Richard made us aware that his heart had shifted. 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.

Back in March, we announced that Pinsky have decided to break up, set to play their final show on July 28th. Well, they decided to record one last EP with Brian McTernan that will release on July 24, 2012. The band will also be recording some acoustic versions of songs from each release, starting with "What We're Doing" from 2008's Two For the Road, which can be seen in the replies.

Abigail Williams will be breaking up after their upcoming U.S. tour.
StatementAfter much consideration we have decided to make these upcoming Abigail Williams shows our last US tour. This was a very hard decision to make but feels absolutely necessary at this point. I've had the best times of my life with this band and learned so much about what I want to do with music as well as what I don't like about the industry etc and we honestly feel like its best to put the band to rest after making what we feel to be our very best album. Im honestly just feeling satisfied with everything we have done as Abigail Williams and I feel ready to put it to rest. We want everyone to know this...

Elevate: I Am have broken up. Vocalist/guitarist John Martinez and guitarist Brett Glazier are starting a new band together.
StatementHey there everyone! We havent been on in a while because we are no longer together. We wanted to get back together and release another album but it just isnt in the cards anymore (life is a bit to hectic right now). John Martinez and I (Brett G.) are going to assemble a new band though and could use everyones help to find musicians that would be willing to be a part of something awesome. The new stuff will be heavy and melodic. The band will be fronted by John, and I will continue to play my guitar. If anyone is interested or knows someone who may be, feel...

Brightwood has gone on an indefinite hiatus.
From the BandFirstly, our deepest apologies for not keeping you guys in the loop about what's been happening these past few years. The goal with this message is to fill you in on everything. By employing your impecable deductive reasoning... skills, I'm sure you've already gathered that Brightwood has been more than a little beneath the radar for some time now. The circumstances surrounding this reality are not sensational. The fact of the matter is, Brightwood has just not been happening. As much as it would be easiest to blame this on a violent break-up, the truth is there really is no clear-cut explaination. All the members of the...

Assemble The Skyline is going on an indefinite hiatus:
Message From the BandThese past three years have been the best years of our lives. We're very fortunate to have had as much support from all of you as we have. We've been living and breathing ATS non-stop. We've traveled the entire country, recorded three albums, and have had the best times of lives. We would have never been able to do it without all of you. We will never forget all of this, however we have reached a point in our career where we have mutually decided that the best thing for us as individuals is to temporarily part ways. There are no personal issues between us. We are all still best friends and this indefinite...

In a recent interview with The Guardian Damon Albarn spoke about how the forthcoming Hyde Park concert should be Blur's last and that the revival of Gorillaz is highly unlikely.
From The Interview"I find it very easy to record with Graham (Coxon)," Albarn said. "He's a daily musician. With the other two, it's harder for them to reconnect … It's fine when we play live: it's really magical still. But actually recording new stuff, and swapping musical influences … it's quite difficult."

The King Blues have split up.
Message From The BandIt is with great sadness and very heavy hearts that we must inform you, that as of today The King Blues are no more. We are all immensely proud of our body of work. We will be releasing the last The King Blues album entitled ‘Long Live The Struggle’ as the final chapter. The album will be released in early July 2012. We simply feel we have taken things as far as they can go and it would be unfair on you if we were to go through the motions like so many other artists do. We all believe strongly in what The King Blues stands for. Can we take this opportunity to thank you all so much for your support, love and passion down the...

Air France have decided to call it quits. A statement from the band can be read below.
Band StatementWe’ll make this brief, because it hurts too much.

During the first year of Air France, somewhere in the middle of the last decade, everything seemed to come so easily. At least it feels like that right now. We’d meet on friday nights to drink wine, listen to music and picture ourselves far off, somewhere on the outskirts on the big map Henrik had on his wall. The songs we made during those nights weren’t really supposed to ever leave the hard drive, but somehow they did, and somehow they took us to almost all the places on that big map we had dreamt about. We got to play records at the...
