After months of speculation and hints from band members, keyboardist Pouyan Afkary has officially announced the end of Scary Kids Scaring Kids. The band will embark on their final tour in January. In a blog titled, "We Are Breaking Up," Afkary says:

"The reason we are ending the band is very simple. We created this band together as juniors in high school and though we’ve been able to grow together for many years, inevitably we have also grown apart. We’ve had some very serious difficulties over the years as a lot of you can probably relate to as well. Life throws us all something different and we’ve decided that the best thing for us personally is to end the band on a positive note and start new chapters in our individual lives. We don’t want this thing that we’ve created to become the source of ultimate negativity and we’d rather remember the great times we’ve had together and move forward knowing we tried our best and had more good times than bad."

Afkary goes on to say that "a few of us will continue following our passion for creating music," but no future plans have been revealed.
