The King Blues have to announced their intention to break up following a final album release in June 2012.
From the band's Facebook page:
"It is with great sadness and very heavy hearts that we must inform you, that as of today The King Blues are no more.
We are all immensely proud of our body of work. We will be releasing the last The King Blues album entitled ‘Long Live The Struggle’ as the final chapter. The album will be released in early July 2012
We simply feel we have taken things as far as they can go and it would be unfair on you if we were to go through the motions like so many other artists do. We all believe strongly in what The King Blues stands for.
Can we take this opportunity to thank you all so much for your support, love and passion down the years.
long live the struggle
The King Blues"
Pretty sad. I always liked this band and Itch is a damn good lyricist. Interested to see if he does something new.
Josh will be crushed.

FUCK THIS SHIT
;) but seriously this sucks
Itch has had a side project lined up for a while- its supposedly Rancid meets The Beastie Boys meets Skrillex (I hope I've remembered that correctly!).

i couldn't stomach their last album, but this still sucks.

Digging: Of Montreal - Daughter of Cloud
gonna kill myself now
Yeah this is shit, but they were sometimes a little too preachy for my liking
Went off this band when most of the members left, their first two albums are great though.
For some reason I saw this coming. Well kinda sucks. I wasn't crazy about them but they wuz cool.
you guys are wrong punk and poetry is their best
Quiting while still on top? Quiting after releasing what they believe is as good as they'll ever be? Like At the Gates? Imense respect for that.
Dude what the fuck.
Digging: This Will Destroy You - Young Mountain
DOES ANYBODY CARE ABOUT USSS
They were a great laugh live.
Damn, this sucks.
WE ARE FUCKING ANGREYYYYYYY
I thought these guys could only keep going up. They're one of my favourite bands and I'm so glad I got to see them live in September just gone. Their set was awesome, and the support The Skints were damn good too. Along with Motion City Soundtrack, they're a top live band.
HOW COULD THEY BREAK UP ON MY BIRTHDAY
