As Cities Burn Break Up
2009-07-17 by TTrent4 | 68 Comments
Lousiana alt. rockers As Cities Burn have split after 6 years together. Their third, and presumably final, album Hell Or High Water was released in April.

The band announced the news on MySpace, writing: "As Cities Burn has broken up. We are happily moving on after 6 good years. Our lives and our wives have called us in different directions. Thanks to anyone who has come out to a show, had words to say, or bought a cd to help us fill the tank."

This is sad, but not really suprising considering they never even toured to support Hell Or High Water.

Wasn't that big of a fan, so doesn't really matter to me.

Sad but not all surprising as they pretty much said that's what they were going to do before they released the last album.

For whatever reason I always thought these guys were a metalcore band, so I never bothered to check them out until now, and I was pleasantly surprised. Too bad they broke up.

You guys act like this is a surprise.. they were set to break up once the album hit, I'm surprised it took so long for them to announce it publicly.

What? God damm the things you miss when you're gone for a week.
Come Now Sleep changed my life in ways that can only be touched by Lift Your Skinny Fists.
Hell Or High Water was also fantastic.
This diffently isn't a surprise but still terrible news.
They will be missed.

Not sure if they have a myspace or anything like that. But they're in a band called Hawkboy and have been playing shows for a couple months, playing originals and ACB songs.
