When I woke to a text alert telling me Attack Attack had broken up, I legitimately lept from bed in my Boston home and scrambled to my laptop. Ohio’s Attack Attack! have been one of our most covered bands, and to hear that they quietly announced their break up in the dead of the night seemed strange. Then I logged on to realize the company behind the aforementioned text alert didn’t understand how important the exclamation point is in the band’s name and that, my friends, is how I learned the UK based Attack! Attack! were going to be parting …

The world said farewell to Underoath last night, but not before the band revealed a few last minute surprises.
In the midst of their final performance ever, Underoath stopped the music momentarily to welcome former drummer Aaron Gillespie onto the stage. Gillespsie left the band a few years back, but was one of the early members that helped the band develop their signature sound. The appearance was followed with both Aaron and current drummer Daniel Davison working together for a track, then Davison left the stage and allowed Gillespie to take the spotlight for one last rendition of the fan …
Bleeding Through have been a force in metal no one could reckon with since their formation in 1999, but a recent series of Facebook posts from the band and its members seems to paint a grim future.
Last night, Bleeding Through posted the following message on Facebook regarding their upcoming European tour:
“Hey Europe come see us play the “Hit The Deck Festival” Stay tuned for complete dates. This will be our final European tour…… I know that some of you know this already. Many don’t…. Some people already think we are done. Starts in April.”
As if that post …
New Jersey metal band The Air I Breathe are entering their last days. So many bands fell by the wayside in 2012; hopefully, 2013 will keep the farewells to a minimum. That said, The Air I Breathe’s goodbye tour will feature support from For All I Am, Famous Last Words, and For Sirens & Sailors.
Their reason for breaking up, originally posted in November, is simple: all the band members have moved on to other things, be it other musical projects or life. We’ll keep our eyes peeled for what every soon-to-be ex-member does in the future.
For the full …

Run For Cover Records’ own Basement released a farewell statement to their fan base recently and UTG would like to share it with you all. The group played their final shows last week and became emotional over the amount of support they received. Read the message below and send your well-wishes in the comments section.
“Last weekend was incredibly special for us, it was the perfect way to say goodbye. We chose the Well and the Underworld because they have always been our favourite venues to play, so it really meant so much that people came out to see us. …
When punk band Refused first got back together, no one could have expected the reunion would last. Other than the fact that after their demise they made a documentary on the turmoil that made them break up with the appropriate name of Refused Are Fucking Dead, the band’s whole belief was strongly anti-capitalism – so the whole idea of getting back for money didn’t seem to apply the way it does for the rest of reunited groups (At The Drive In, I’m looking at you).
We’ve known for sometime that this year would be it, to the …

In a time where the world is flooded with artists vying for even a moment of your attention, it is becoming near impossible to find those brutally honest, hardworking, sold their soul to rock and roll types that so many attempt to imitate. James Muñoz, the man whose beard is captured in the photo by François Carl Duguay accompanying this article on the night of his final performance as vocalist of The Bled, is one of those artists.
Joining The Bled following a recommendation from departing vocalist Adam Goss days before the band entered the studio to record …
