Be Your Own Pet have announced they will split up after they complete their forthcoming UK tour.
The Nashville band broke the news in a post on their Myspace page entitled ‘BYOP Final Tour!’ saying:
“We are sad to bring you the news that our upcoming shows in the UK (dates below) are going to be our last as a band. We thank you for all your love and support these past few years – its been a blast but the time has come for the 4 of us to go our separate ways.”
The band were due to play McCarren Pool, Brooklyn on August 7, when they were scheduled to open for The Black Keys, but will no longer play that show.
Instead, the band will wrap up their career with four shows in the UK. The dates are:
Reading, UK Reading Festival (August 22)
West Yorkshire, UK Leeds Festival (23)
Liverpool, UK Carling Academy 2 (25)
London, UK Dingwalls (26)
