Los Angeles duo INTRCPTR, comprised of guitarist Ben Carr (5ive) and drummer Larry Herweg (Pelican) shared a new video this week to announce the group's end.

The video comes from their second EP, II, which was released on Pax Aeternum last year and features a collection of live footage and still photography.

Herweg speaks of the band's break-up:

Kenneth Thomas a longtime friend and collaborator with Pelican and other label mates made the perfect send off for our band. Upon getting the finished video this past week I found out Ben was relocating back to the East Coast. This past week we were also scheduled to open for Shiner in LA, but like all live shows it got postponed indefinitely. It would've been a great last show together, but the world has different plans for everyone right now. Thank you to everyone that listened, came out to our shows, helped us put out our music, etc. I'm going to miss jamming with you Ben. It was nice having you out here for a few years and so glad you asked me to get together to play music. Safe travels and hope to see you soon. Be well everyone.

Watch the video.

Splits Fight Amp

Fight Amp

Philadelphia's Fight Amp have announced a final tour and break-up, playing a few shows in early November before their final Nov. 12 show in ...

Well, here it is. As of today we're officially announcing that our November shows will be our last. Fight Amp is going on indefinite hiatus.
It's been a long strange, wild, educational, fun and sometimes painful journey, and this is not a decision we made lightly or quickly. It may come as a surprise to a lot of you, but the three of us have been chewing on this for a while. The timing just seems right at this point. We're leaving on a high note with the release of our favorite Fight Amp record to date, Constantly Off, as our farewell album.
We can't thank you all enough for riding this thing through with us. There's enough stories, gratitude, lessons and history embedded in this band at this point that we could write a book on the topic. Instead of a long-winded statement here we'll let those things come out as time passes. Without going into too much further detail, we're making this move to focus on other musical projects. We're lifers in this thing and we're not going anywhere as musicians, so stay tuned for what's to come. As far as the new material we had written and started to demo, we'll let that sleep for now.
It's been real, people. Thank you all so much for the continued support and we hope to see you in November to see Fight Amp one last time.
One fuckin' love,Mike, Jon, DanFight Amputation(2004-2016)
