The Banner Officially Brake Up

The Banner have said they are officially calling it a day but will play some shows and release an EP before the end of 2010.

Front man, Joey Southside made the following statement:

"Alright as im sure you may have guessed The Banner is embarking on our Swan song. Theres no drama or nothing its just we pretty much did everything i wished to do and id like to bow out as gracefully as we are capable (yeah, i know, but for us this is as graceful as youre gonna get.) Were gonna play a last show at the end of the year. im not sure of exactly when someone could nail down a start date of this band but it was 1999-2000 so the end of 2010 will be at least ten years and ten years/6 records is something i can move on feeling ok about.

So before the end of the year were gonna play other shows around the area and do a few things so i can square away the lingering financial obligations and make a clean break.

If you want to book us somewhere that involves flying or touring to get to, unless you plan on paying for us to fly there (and if you are the fuck is wrong with you?), it aint happening.

Gonna be working on final EP of sorts that will ideally be out before the last show, Wondering who is gonna put it out? NOBODY, I begged and pleaded but everybody was "too busy". if i can gather enough funds after paying for recording ill press it myself but lets face it...probably not gonna happen. No, looks like the last album will be coming out on Mediafire Records.

I guess we will let you know about the last shows and stuff when we figure it out
Also anybody want to buy a van? 8k 2004 chevy express 25k you get to keep the vanzig sticker, we can probably work out a trade for comic books though."
