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).
