Isis Is No More

The seminal metal band Isis appear to have broken up, based on a message that was posted on their blog sometime Tuesday night. "This end isn't something that occurred over night and it hasn't been brought about by a single cataclysmic fracture in the band. Simply put, ISIS has done everything we wanted to do, said everything we wanted to say." (via)
The group is definitely ending, but it's not quite over yet. There's a month long tour ahead with guests such as Melvins, Tombs, and some others. They're playing Bonnaroo, and there are some west coast dates as well as stops in Washington D.C., Philadelphia, New York, Boston, and Montreal.
Additionally, the final blog post also stated that when the tour ends the band will be "pursuing the completion of a final EP, compiling live audio and visual material for future releases, and generally doing whatever [they] can to make [their] music available for as long as there are people who wish to hear it."
