Canadian hardcore outfit Abandon All Ships have announced plans to disband before the end of September.

“We’d like to start this off with a thank you. Thank you to our fans, friends, and family for the last 8 years,” wrote Angel Aita of Abandon All Ships in an open letter released Friday afternoon. “After many ups and downs, good times and bad, it’s time that Abandon All Ships comes to an end. There’s no hard feelings or inner turmoil, it’s just time that we all move on to the next chapter of our lives. We’d also like to say thank you to Velocity/Rise Records, The Agency Group, Avocado Booking, Redfield Records, Go With Me Records, Underground Operations, and our management teams at Artery Foundation & Cloud Empire. Without you, this could have never happened. We’ll be playing one last show in our hometown (Toronto, Ontario. Canada) on Sept 25th. We hope you can make it.”

Abandon All Ships were the first group to sign to Velocity/Rise Records, but their EDM-friendly sound drew a lot of hate from critics and genre purists alike. We always applauded the group’s mission to push music into places that are rarely explored, and will admittedly miss their unique brand of ego-heavy lyricism. You can view the video for one of our favorite singles from the band’s debut below.

Rest in peace, AAS. You will be missed.
