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.

An interview with Former Thieves can be read here.
QuoteThe EP was kind of one dimensional. We wanted this one to be more well rounded and have more range of emotion. Still be able to do the noodling stuff, but have more punishing songs.
