Snapcase planning final show

Snapcase guitarist Frank Vicario recently posted a few messages on the group's website suggesting that the band will soon be calling it quits and are in the process of scheduling their final show, which will apparently take place in mid-January in Buffalo, NY. More specifically, here are some postings by Vicario: "Snapcase isn't broken up... yet. We're in the process of organizing last show(s) for early next year. So for all intents and purposes we're pretty much done... [later] Unfortunately it's looking more and more like it will be one last show in our hometown and that's it. Look for an announcement soon and for those who are still interested in seeing Snapcase play one last time, keep your schedules open in mid-January. It's no mystery that the popularity of the band has been waning over the past few years and it's tough to keep flogging a dead horse when hearts are in other places, whether that be with family, jobs and/or other bands. We reached an impasse where our core fan-base had been dwindling due to disenfranchisement with our newer material and since we were a band who had been around for a while, many people had already pigeonholed what they perceived our sound to be and were reluctant to give us a chance. You know how it is? We sure do." Meanwhile, it appears that Vicario will be playing full-time with his new band, Ourselves, which also features Snapcase members Ben Lythberg and Dustin Perry.
