See you around, gentlemen.
Yellowcard are calling it a day after nearly two decades of activity.
The band have posted a lengthy message to fans which reads, "We have decided that it is time for Yellowcard to come to an end."
They continue: "We can only hope that the memories we have made together with you will stay in your hearts as well. You have stood by us through all of the highs and lows on this unbelievable journey."
Their final, self-titled album will be released on September 30 via Hopeless Records, and you can hear new song 'Rest In Peace' below.
Yellowcard will tour the UK and Europe one last time in December with support from Normandie and The Kenneths.

The band's final album was self-produced - by Ryan Key and Ryan Mendez - and is available to pre-order at their website.
You can read their full statement below.
"Putting this into words hasn’t been easy. When saying farewell, it is hard to know where to start, especially when there are so many reasons not to say it, but the time has come to share this news. After countless discussions and months of thought, we have decided that it is time for Yellowcard to come to an end. This will be our last album and our final world tour.
"The decision was an incredibly difficult one for us to make. We considered so many things - our families, our health, our future endeavors. In the end we realized that this was the right time to step away and preserve the legacy and integrity of the band. It is with you, the fans in mind, that this decision was made. We wanted to have the chance to share our farewell with as many fans around the world as we could, and now is the right time to do just that.
"We went into this record knowing it would be the last, which is why we chose to have Ryan Key and Ryan Mendez produce it. The motivation behind this was to make sure these songs came from a place that was deeply rooted in us. We wanted to push ourselves to create a lasting finale for this incredible story on our own. It is also why we chose to self-title the album. We were lucky to still have our friend and mentor, Neal Avron, on board as Executive Producer and mixer and we've made one of the strongest records of our career and a fitting final creative piece.
"Once this final chapter for Yellowcard comes to a close, we will all be heading in new directions in our lives, but these memories will never leave us. We can only hope that the memories we have made together with you will stay in your hearts as well. You have stood by us through all of the highs and lows on this unbelievable journey.
"We will be forever grateful to Yellowcard fans all over the world for the opportunities you have given us. We have played shows for nearly two decades on six continents, and had the chance to keep recording the music we love year after year. While it is with sadness that we say goodbye, it is with gratitude and amazement that we look back on a career we can be proud of, and were so very lucky to have had."
"Please come and join us on our last trip around the globe. We hope to share this final record and tour with each and every one of you.
“I won’t be with you, but I won’t be far away and this is goodbye.”
-Ryan, Sean, Ryan, and Josh"
Expect a new album soon.
The Kenneths have released a new single titled 'All Cried Out'.
“It’s two and half minutes of pure frustration and angst," explains vocalist Josh Weller.
"About one of those addictive, self-destructive, emotionally devastating relationships, where you break up over and over again. By the time it’s finally finished, you feel numb. You’ve got nothing left to give. You’re all cried out.”
The song comes with a video, which you can check out below.
'All Cried Out' is a first taste of the band's debut album, which they recently recorded with producer Bill Stevenson.
"A new era of music begins..."
Turns out the mysterious messages multiple bands posted last night were teasers for the launch of a new record label.
SharpTone Records is co-founded by Nuclear Blast's Markus Staiger and Shawn Keith and announced its roster today.
Attila, We Came As Romans, Miss May I, Loathe and World War Me will release new music through SharpTone soon, and Don Broco have also signed with the label.
"We are REALLY excited to announce that we have officially signed to SharpTone," said Attila's Fronz.
"We are at an amazing point in our career and we know that these guys have the power that we need to take things to the next level. We're ready to dominate the planet with our brand new album. SharpTone is a label that shares our enthusiasm and understands who we are and what our vision is. So let's fucking crush the world and spread party metal to the masses!”
