Lionheart breaking up
North California hardcore/metal band Lionheart is calling it quits after roughly twelve years together. Prior to disbanding, they will release some new material and play a handful of final shows. Here is a statement from the group:
"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."
