Pittsburgh heavy hitters and longtime Facedown Records act Those Who Fear are calling it a day. They'll be playing one final show as part of Facedown Fest on May 11 at the Glass House in Pomona, CA.
The band were already scheduled to appear on the first day of this year's three-day Facedown Fest, the 20th anniversary installment of Facedown Records' annual concert event, performing alongside Sleeping Giant, Bloodlined Calligraphy and Saving Grace.
However, as Facedown Records tweeted on Monday, the gig will now be Those Who Fear's final show. The band followed that tweet with a Facebook update of their own. See both below.
Those Who Fear—vocalist John Healy, guitarists Luke Healy and Caleb DeRusha, drummer Jacob Wilder and bassist Josh Ziegler—formed in 2005. They released their third album on Facedown, State Of Mind, just last December. Previously, the veteran hardcore label issued the band's albums Death Sentence (2014) and Unholy Anger (2013).
On Wednesday, guitarist DeRusha posted on Instagram that he is currently seeking a vocalist, so perhaps a new band will emerge after TWF's wrapup.
