AP Tour alumni As Tall As Lions have announced that they are "retiring for the forseeable future" and have set a string of farewell tour dates for December.
In a blog post, the band wrote, "After eight years of music, friendship, laughter, adventure, bliss, blood, sweat, tears and everything else that goes along with it, As Tall As Lions are retiring for the forseeable future. There is no sadness on our side, and we hope there is none on yours. We will be playing a handful of shows across the country to try and give everyone an opportunity to see us one last time. Our sincerest apologies to those who can't join us at these celebrations, but know you will be there in spirit. Much love to you all, and thanks again for everything."
The Long Island indie outfit formed in December 2001 and released three full-lengths including last year's You Can't Take It With You. They were part of the inaugural AP Tour in 2007 alongside Circa Survive, Cute Is What We Aim For and Envy On The Coast.
