Sad news, pop punk fans. New York’s With The Punches have revealed plans to go on hiatus before summer is out.

Taking to their official Facebook page just before 11AM (EST) this morning, With The Punches announced plans to take a break from music with an open letter to fans and followers. The message details the events leading up to the announcement, as well as plans for a final run of shows in the coming weeks. You can read the band’s word below, followed by their farewell tour poster.

With The Punches have been one of our favorite bands on the rise over the last few years and it is with great sadness that we wish them all the best in their future endeavors.

After 5 years, 2 EP’s, 1 LP, 3 Continents, 4 Vehicles, and a few hundred shows, With The Punches is sad to announce that we will be going on hiatus for a while. We would like to thank everyone who ever took the time to listen to our band, everyone who supported us in any way, and those of you who went above and beyond and helped us keep it together at times where falling apart could have so easilly happened. We will be doing a run of last shows in August (the dates of which are listed below) in which we will be playing as many of our songs as time will allow. We would love to see as many friends at these shows as possible and will post the individual show information via all our social networking sites. Thank you for making this everything it became and so much more than we ever dreamed.

In conjunction with the final shows we are proud to announce that we have partnered with our friends at Panic State Records to release a limited farewell pressing of our first two EP’s on 12” Vinyl. Supplies will be very limited and pre-orders will be announced in the coming weeks. We will have any remaining copies for sale at the merch table at the shows

Thank you for everything this became,

With The Punches
