After 9 years together, New Jersey hardcore act The Mongoloids have decided to call it quits, announcing plans to release a new 7-inch and tour the eastern US one last time this summer. Here’s the statement they posted on their Facebook page:
During the past 9 years we’ve overcome countless obstacles, seen more than a couple of member changes and made some of the best of friends / enemies, however we feel that the time has come to bring this band to an end. We will be releasing a final 7” on Six Feet Under Records in the summer which will feature 4 brand new songs and in the coming months we’ll be playing some shows throughout the U.S. and Canada. Our final show will take place on Saturday August 23rd in Howell, NJ at GameChanger World and the full line up will be announced in the coming weeks. The Mongoloids started as a straight edge band in the summer of 2005 and will end as a straight edge band in the summer of 2014.
We’ll be sure to keep you posted as more details on The Mongoloids’ final 7-inch come to light. For now, you can find details on all of the band’s farewell tour dates below.
