My Pop Punk Heart Is Broken: A Loss For Words Plan To Disband In 2015

There is no way around it. The news I am about to share sucks more than I can begin to express in the introduction, but at least we have a year to let everything sink in.

Last night, August 23, A Loss For Words were playing a hometown show in Massachusetts when frontman Matt Arsenault told the crowd that the band had a very special announcement to share. We were not on site, so it’s impossible for us to tell you exactly what was said, but we do know that the group revealed plans to disband next year. In fact, …

The Civil Wars Officially Break Up

I have one word for this story: Dammit.

After nearly five years together, The Civil Wars have announced that they are officially calling it quits. The duo, as you may well know, had been on indefinite hiatus since 2012, but this morning they made it known that there is apparently no hope left for reconciliation.

It’s not all bad, however, as the band has decided to say farewell by releasing their cover of “You Are My Sunshine” as a free download. Previously released in 2011 as a B-side to the band’s limited-edition Barton Hollow 7-inch, it’s the first time the …

Death Grips Announce They’re “Over”

Noise hip-hop group Death Grips are always full of surprises, yet perhaps today’s is the biggest of all. Shortly after dropping a mixtape collaboration with Bjork, they’re calling it quits.

The band is known for canceling shows and dropping unexpected mixtapes, so who’s to say if this will hold true (or if they won’t reunite in a matter of months à la Thee Oh Sees). For now, it’s safe to assume the band’s telling the truth. No more shows, no more new music (apart from The Powers That B), and no more surprises. The Facebook post stating …

Ovlov

Ovlov Have Officially Broken Up

Connecticut-based band Ovlov just announced on their Facebook page that they are breaking up. Really.

On the post, they wrote that “like the last season of Degrassi” they too are putting an end to their limited run. They will still be playing shows on July 11 and August 17-20, although almost all of them are sold out since the band has been riding high since the success of their 2013 LP am. We’ll be busy listening to that and their recent split with Little Big League on repeat as we cry for the remainder of this week (if not month).…

Rest In Peace: G-Unit (2002-2014)

It’s the end of an era for one of modern hip-hop’s most popular rap collectives.

Speaking in a new interview with Power99′s Cosmic Kev at the end of last week, rapper and Vitamin Water investor 50 Cent broke the news that G-Unit has been ‘dismantled.’ He claims despite the numerous rumors that have popped up over the years there are absolutely no plans for a reunion at this time, and even if the possibility presented itself he has no desire to ever enter a new contract with either Lloyd Banks or Tony Yayo.

This is not exactly game …

City Lights

City Lights Call It Quits

City Lights have been together since 2008, and they’ve released two full length albums in that time. One of which, was released this past December. It’s a rather short time for a band to be together, but it appears as though that’s long enough for the group as they have announced their plans to break up.

Though the group did no go into detail about their decision, they did indicate it was time for them to take different opportunities. It seems that a few of them still want to make music, and the others want to focus on working behind …
