ISIS Announces Farewell Tour, Impending Breakup

According to a post on the band’s official blog, ISIS is throwing in the towel. Their reasoning is actually quite commendable:

Simply put, ISIS has done everything we wanted to do, said everything we wanted to say. In the interest of preserving the love we have of this band, for each other, for the music made and for all the people who have continually supported us, it is time to bring it to a close. We’ve seen too many bands push past the point of a dignified death and we all promised one another early on in the life of the band that we would do our best to ensure ISIS would never fall victim to that syndrome. We’ve had a much longer run than we ever expected we would and accomplished a great deal more than we ever imagined possible. We never set any specific goals when the band was founded other than to make the music we wanted to hear and to play (and to stay true to that ideal), so everything else that has come along the long and winding path has been an absolute gift.

Though this is a bummer, I have to give them kudos for ending it on their terms and attempting to maintain their artistic integrity. Here’s a list of all the dates on their upcoming (and final!) tour.

    Damn! I just started getting into them a couple months ago. At least I’ll be able to catch the tour.
