Backtrack, who formed in 2008 and have released music on Flatspot Records, 6131 Records, and Bridge 9 Records, will disband at year's end.

Before the group calls it a day, they will embark on several tours, including dates in the US, Canada, Asia, and Australia.

"We appreciate everyone who has shown this band love over the past eleven years. Thanks to anyone who has supported us along the way, and we look forward to seeing you one last time," the band says in a prepared statement.

Confirmed tour dates are listed below, with more still to come. Backtrack most recently released Bad To My World in 2017 (Bridge 9).

Final Nothington release, Europe dates

Currently midway through a European tour, Nothington has released their final record, a split 7" with Swingin' Utters, released on Red Scare Industries.

“Don’t be bummed this is our last song because, hey, we get to do a split with Swingin’ Utters! So stoked," guitarist/vocalist Chris Matulich says of the record.

The band announced the record and, pending a few farewell shows in 2019, has no future plans, referring to their future as an "indefinite hiatus."
