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.

    Its a crying shame these guys have broken up. Lots of people cite them as one of the first bands to try the screaming/melodic hardcore thing but dont let that give you the wrong impression- this was no whinging MCR bullshit. They were very decent musicians (try our time honoured tradition of cannibalism) and fantastic song writers (plague, unspoken request) and will be sorely missed by all on the punk scene. It sucks that they never got the respect they so deserved. What a shame.

    I've only heard of this band recently, but I don't like em that much. It still sucks that any band has to break up... except blink 182.

    i think this is a band my brother loved, and they sounded pretty good from what ive heard of them. shame theyre breaking up, but maybe some of them will continue in music.

    If anyone can tab "Requiem" by Boysetsfire on here than that would be immense.

    to bad they werent really that big (in the independent label sense). although i did really like that song they had on the dare devil soundtrack (dont ask me why i had that), i think it was called high wire escapa artist or somethin.
