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...

From the MessagePLEA will be playing our final U.S. shows alongside, long time friends, AS HELL RETREATS in August and September of this year. The run has been dubbed the “QUIT YOUR BAND AND GET A JOB TOUR.” The last seven years have been amazing. Come have one more party and a few more stage dives with us at one of these final shows.

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...

This Is A Standoff have broken up.
StatementAs you may have noticed, things have been quiet with us since the fall, and apologies are due, as we have been holding onto this bit of news for a few months now. To make it short and sweet, This Is A Standoff is done. Touring has become harder and harder, and everyone's lives have been heading in different directions for quite some time now. We set out to be a part-time band, but somehow we ended up playing 322 shows in over 25 countries across 4 continents. Along the way, we were lucky enough make amazing friends in all corners of the world and play along side some of our favourite bands. It's been an amazing and surreal five years,...

From the StatementAs of last week we have decided that Take Cover will be parting ways. The time has come where some of us feel ready to move on to the next chapter of our lives and we had to be honest with ourselves and each other and accept it. Although we are disbanding as Take Cover, I want to assure everyone that this is not the end of music for any of us by any means. It’s in our blood and its not going anywhere.

Seminal 90's pop-punk/indie rock label, Lookout! Records is shutting its doors. In a recent blog post, Ted Leo made the informal announcement.
From the BlogI’ve been getting a lot of Twitter questions about why a bunch of my records have disappeared from all the digital services (Sportify, iDudes, Mandora, etc.). It’s because our beloved Lookout Records, which ceased releasing new material in 2006, but carried on keeping the catalog in print until this past December, has, sadly, shuttered it’s windows for good.

A better eulogy should be forthcoming, but just to answer these questions, this means that these records have reverted to my complete ownership, which is kind of cool in...

Message from CassadeeHey everyone! Cassadee here. I know since I announced my solo acoustic tour, there has been a lot of rumors and confusion swirling around. I wanted to let you all know that Hey Monday is not “broken up.” We are, however, taking a break and pursuing things on our own. In my case, that is a solo project. I hope you all understand that this does not mean we’ll never release new music or tour ever again. I just felt the need to fill you all in since I’ve gotten a good amount of questions pertaining to this. Me...

Sublime With Rome are not breaking up.
Message from the BandThere have been some misunderstandings and miscommunication on what exactly is going down with us so we wanted to set the record straight. First off, rest assured that Sublime with Rome is NOT breaking up. Our brother Bud is about to have a baby and, understandingly, taking some time off to be with his family. We couldn’t be happier for him and welcome him back out on the road with us as soon as he needs a break from the diapers and baby bottles. We already have some major touring plans for 2012 that we’ll be announcing very soon so we’ve started talking to a few drummer friends. Which brings us to the second thing…there’s...
