Northern California hardcore band Lionheart have announced that they have decided to call it quits after 12 years together. Prior to the breakup, they will play their final shows and release some new material. The band explains:
“Toured with some good bands, toured with some bad ones. Met some great people, and some complete idiots. Started this band in a living room in San Francisco and ended up getting to see the world. Seen a million bands, scenes, trends, and people come and go- now it’s our time. Everyone has jobs or careers that make doing this (even part time) next to impossible. One more EP, a split with one of our favorite bands, and some final U.S. shows will be announced soon. The current Canadian & European dates will be our last shows in those territories. Thank you for everything- this was one hell of a ride.”
Lionheart released their recent album Love Don’t Live Here last January through their own label LHHC Records.
