Pretty Girls in the grave: Seattle punks split
- Pretty Girls Make Graves »
Seattle's finest pop-hooked punks Pretty Girls Make Graves are calling it quits after five-plus years together and three well-received albums.
Drummer Nick Dewitt (far right of picture) left the band a little while ago, and this has been cited as a reason to disband the five-piece for good.
A message on the band's website reads:
"We are sorry to announce that our upcoming tour in May will be our last. Nick quit the band and the rest of us feel like it wouldn't be right to continue on without him. The five of us feel very lucky to have met and worked with some truly amazing people over the years. Thank you all so much."
PGMG's third and final album, Elan Vital, was released through Matador last year. For the band's final tour dates (in the US), please continue to check their website via the above link (there's nothing in the shows section as yet).
