Boy Sets Fire have announced on their website that the band has decided to retire:
"It is not with a heavy heart that we write these words but with a head held high. we wanted to collectively inform you that Boysetsfire has decided to retire. thank you all for your support and belief in us over the last 12 years...please know it meant the world to us.
"Boysetsfire for us was always a vehicle for changing the world and we believe that change comes about by starting with yourself, so instead of awaiting certain things to come our way, as always we decided to take our destiny in our own hands. we're not sure which path each of us will take from here on out, but we plan to continue following our dreams... we will play all the shows of our upcoming european tour and possibly one or two last shows on the east coast sometime this fall (we will keep you posted on this)"
Through the 12 years the band was together, they released countless full-lengths, EPs, and splits. 1997 saw a release of The Day The Sun Went Out, Suckerpunch Training and splits with both Shai Hulud and Coalesce in 2000, After The Eulogy in 2001, Live For Today in 2002, Tomorrow Come Today in 2003, and most recently The Misery Index: Notes From The Plague Years.
