This Century are breaking up.
We have decided as a band that after eight amazing and fulfilling years, we will be closing this chapter of our lives and stepping out into the next. This band has allowed us to grow and learn more about each other than we ever thought we would, and we all feel like we’re better people because of that and because of you guys. We love each other like brothers, we always have and we always will, so we’re happy to say this isn’t a result of anything negative. This Century has been an amazing experience, but we unanimously agreed while we were making this new album that it was time to move on to pursue each of our passions and musical projects. We wanted to see...

Morning Parade have broke up.
Today is our time to come clean and reveal that with great thought and heavy sadness, we as 5 individuals have decided to call time on our journey as Morning Parade.

This is not down to musical differences, nor is it down to interpersonal relationships or band disagreements. It comes down to the simple reality that at this current point, for us to continue any further would be to do so at the detriment of our friendship, our personal, emotional, mental and financial well being, as well our enjoyment of music and memories of our time as Morning Parade.

Morning Parade has given us some of our greatest memories, dream like experiences, hysterical laughter,...

The Blackout are breaking up after a final UK tour.
Hey Guys, There’s no point in dancing around the subject, so we’ll cut right to the chase. We regret to announce that Wolves will be the final release by The Blackout. Unfortunately we have come to the conclusion we are unable to sustain this band anymore, and we feel the time is right to bring it to a close. This is the hardest decision we have ever had to make as a band, and although we do it with heavy hearts, we also do with our heads held high. We are all extremely proud of Wolves, and are eternallygrateful to each and every one of you who helped it get made. We said that it would not exist without your support, and we honestly mean...

Another great band is throwing in the towel. K Será are breaking up.
Hey friends,

We want to thank all of you for the giving us the chance to pursue our passion and create memories that will last as long as we live. We hope you continue to enjoy the music that we feel proud and lucky to have made.
Until we meet again friends, good luck & take care.

Glocca Morra have decided to break up.
hello everyone and happy holidays. it's a stressful time for all of us, as a country and as humans. in light of America's most recent case of our failing justice system I feel that now would be as good a time as any to tell you that we are ending glocca morra.
my first draft of this post became too autobiographical and contrived. I wanted to talk about our history but it started to become a history lesson that even I got bored of writing.
this band was very important to me and definitely dictated my formative years. we haven't really done anything in the past two years save for two short tours with Owls and Joyce Manor. we just kind of stopped. but...

Guided By Voices have broken-up.
Guided By Voices has come to an end. With 4 years of great shows and six killer albums, it was a hell of a comeback run. The remaining shows in the next two months are unfortunately canceled. Our sincere apologies to those that have purchased tickets and made travel plans.

Abandon All Ships are breaking up.
We'd like to start this off with a thank you.
Thank you to our fans, friends, and family for the last 8 years.

After many ups and downs, good times and bad, it's time that Abandon All Ships comes to an end. There's no hard feelings or inner turmoil, it's just time that we all move on to the next chapter of our lives.

We'd also like to say thank you to Velocity/Rise Records, The Agency Group, Avocado Booking, Redfield Records, Go With Me Records, Underground Operations, and our management teams at Artery Foundation & Cloud Empire. Without you, this could have never happened.

We've launched a discount merch store for those who've wanted to...

Honour Crest have broken up.
On January 15, 2009, we met and soon after preformed our first show with just Lucas, Chad, and a laptop. Since then, the adventures and people we’ve met changed our lives forever. Without all of you we couldn’t have achieved any of our dreams as a band, a family of brothers. Just over five years later though, like all great things, our journey is coming to an end.

It wasn’t an easy decision by any means, and there is absolutely no bad blood between any of us. If anything we’re close than ever and we can’t wait to go out with a bang at our last show coming up in September. Look out for any announcements about that.

I Call Fives are going on indefinite hiatus.
The future for I Call Fives will remain uncertain, but I can say certainly that we will never be in the position to tour like the band did for so many years. The opportunities that people gave us make it very hard to ever say it’s done forever. Unfortunately, the reality is that we’ve had to work jobs full-time, finish school, and do whatever it is we found best for the next chapter of our lives. It has been so hard to admit or write this for me because this band became all I knew, all I thought about, all I put myself into. We met so many bands, many that have grown to be very successful and are still doing it. So many people that let us...

The Seeking have broken up.
Hello everyone. It is with much sadness to announce that The Seeking is no longer a band. Too many members decided to part ways and it left us with no choice but to call it quits. I know this happens all the time with bands and we were hoping to keep this band alive and continue making music we love but we just couldn't. We can't thank you guys enough whether it was buying our CD, merch or simply singing EVERY lyric to each song we played. You guys are literally the best and you all hold a special place in each of our hearts. The only way we can think of repaying you is coming back strong and writing music that relates to you more than anything and playing tons...

Go Radio have broken up.
It is with heavy hearts that after 7 years of making music and touring the world, Go Radio has come to an end. For some of you this comes as a huge shock and for our friends and family this will be a certain sense of closure. There is no easy way to write something like this so we won’t beat around the bush.

Earlier this year Jason came to us with the news that he felt his time with Go Radio had come to an end. He felt a shift in priority to spend more time with his wife and retire from a life on the road. The decision to end this chapter was far from easy, but it simply would not be Go Radio without all four of us. Because of that, this decision is the...

Design the Skyline have broken up.
My heart is heavy as a dawn sets towards a new sunrise. 4 years ago my band Design The Skyline formed from the passion of 7 individuals with the goal of creating a unique open-minded experience in a world bound by normalities. While the goal was ultimately reached and many loving, dedicated fans rose and stand by us, we have decided to part ways and begin a new chapter in our music careers.

"Thank you to all the fans who supported us, fought with us and will continue to do so! I have endless love and appreciation for you! I will never forget all the messages from everyone saying I saved lives, opened eyes, inspired, and helped push through the...

Kid Dynamite will be breaking up after a farewell European tour next year.
It was 2010 when we were first invited to play This Is Hardcore in Philly. It was our first show in nearly 5 years, since playing CBs. We’ve always gotten offers to reunite for a show or two, but nothing ever really panned out. It seemed like all of us were interested in possibly hitting the stage a few more times. Why not? Right? Over the past 3 years we’ve had the pleasure of playing some pretty exciting shows; a warm welcome in California, a magically dusty weekend in Austin, a unexpected romp in Gainesville, a beautifully nostalgic show at the Church in Philly and most recently our first trip to Europe. We...

After nearly 7 years as a band we, House Vs Hurricane have decided it's time for us to move on and call it day.

The five if us could have never imagined the amount of support we have received since our beginnings from our fans, friends, families, past members and and the amazing team that has been behind us the entire way.

We see this as an exciting step more than anything else, of course it's sad but we have been given the opportunity to travel the world, record music, meet so many amazing people and share what we do with anyone who will listen, and for that we are so so grateful and humbled.

Gerard Way has written a very long letter concerning the break up of My Chemical Romance.
My Chemical Romance had, built within its core, a fail-safe. A doomsday device, should certain events occur or cease occurring, would detonate. I shared knowledge of this “flaw” within weeks of its inception.
Personally, I embraced it because, again, it made us perfect. A perfect machine, beautiful, yet self aware of it’s system. Under directive to terminate before it becomes compromised. To protect the idea- at all costs. This probably sounds like something ripped from the pages of a four-color comic book, and that’s the point.
No compromise. No surrender. No fucking shit.

To me that’s rock...

Being in this band for the past 12 years has been a true blessing. We've gotten to go places we never knew we would. We've been able to see and experience things we never imagined possible. We've shared the stage with people we admire, people we look up to, and best of all, our friends. And now, like all great things, it has come time for it to end. Thanks for all of your support, and for being part of the adventure.

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...

After being together for over a decade, MxPx's side project band, Arthur, have officially called it a day.
“Arthur was never a full time touring band, but we were a band none the less, which is why we're formally BREAKING UP,” said band frontman Arthur. “It just doesn’t make sense to keep doing nothing, so we’ve collectively decided to pursue separate creative endeavors.”
“We want to thank all of you that listened to our music and supported Arthur throughout the last decade,” said Arthur, Edmund, Alexander and Zane. “We created music for you, and the best part is that our music will never die!”

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...

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.
