Botch decides to call it quits

We received word early this morning that Botch will be breaking up. A tipster informed us that guitarist Dave Knudson announced at last night's show (2/2) that after nine years the band is calling it quits. He went on to say that they will be releasing a new EP before the end of Summer and have one more Seattle-area show following the Dillinger Escape Plan and Botch dates. UPDATE: The breakup has been confirmed. Here's the official statement: "I am deeply saddened to inform all concerned that botch has decided to quit after 9 years of playing together. The decision, while not completely mutual, is by far the best for all in the band. Personally, I just wanted to thank everyone who has ever put us up for the night, booked us a show, bought out record or put out one of our records =). Most of all though, I want to thank EVERYONE who has continued to support us. I hope that we have done something positive in hardcore, and hopefully have touched some of you on some level. I will continue to answer questions on the message board, and we will keep you posted on when the last show will be. Thanks again everyone, Tim"
