Default R.I.P. BoySetsFire

Just in February this year BoySetsFire made a comeback with "The Misery Index: Notes from the plage years" after a long fight with their former major label. But now it seems like the band will call it quits now, and that the tour this fall will be the farewell tour of the band. With "After the Eulogy", released in 2000, the band was a big influence for the modern Hardcore and Post-Hardcore genre, but never as recognised as many deemed they should have. This was posted on the bands webpage:

"dear friends, it is not with a heavy heart that we write these words but with a head held high. we wanted to collectively inform you that BOYSETSFIRE has decided to retire. thank you all for your support and belief in us over the last 12
years...please know it meant the world to us.

BOYSETSFIRE for us was always a vehicle for changing the world and we believe that change comes about by starting with yourself, so instead of awaiting certain things to come our way, as always we decided to take our destiny in our own hands. we're not sure which path each of us will take from here on out, but we plan to continue following our dreams... we will play all the shows of our upcoming european tour (dates posted below) and possibly one or two last shows on the east coast sometime this fall (we will keep you posted on this)



Shiit, bands are dropping like flies lately.
