As Tall As Lions Share Trailer for Farewell DVD

As previously announced, indie rock group As Tall As Lions will be releasing their farewell documentary on Christmas. With only three days left until that date, they’ve shared a trailer for the DVD which you can watch below (and get all teary-eyed over their departure).

Back in September of 2010, the Long Island band announced that they would be splitting up to pursue other projects. Earlier this month, the band logged back in to their Facebook page to say that their Farewell DVD would be completed in time for Christmas. “It’s a long time coming,” they wrote. “Making final …

As Tall As Lions’s Farewell DVD Will be Out By Christmas

Remember that great indie rock band from Long Island that never seemed to be fully appreciated, even though their music really is a work of art? Yes, As Tall As Lions have some news for you, but it isn’t the reunion you want it to be.

In September of 2010, As Tall As Lions announced, much to fans’ disappointment, that they would be splitting up to pursue other projects. Earlier today, the band logged back in to their Facebook page to say that their Farewell DVD will be completed in time for Christmas. “It’s a long time coming,” they wrote. …

Taking to their social networks this evening, Go Radio members Alex Reed and Steven Kopacz issued the following statement:

Attack! Attack! (UK) Announce Break Up Plans

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 …

Underoath

WATCH: Underoath Perform “Reinventing Your Exit” With Aaron Gillespie At Their Farewell Show

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 …

HOLY SH!T: Bleeding Through Announce Final European Tour; Breakup Seems Imminent

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 …

The Air I Breathe

The Air I Breathe Announce Final Tour

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.
