San Diego's The Plot To Blow Up The Eiffel Tower has announced their impending break-up. Following a fall tour, the group will permanently disband. Additionally, a seven-song mini LP, "Saviours & Suckers," will be released posthumously by Three One G. The group has issued the following statement:

"Over the course of the last five years we have accomplished and exceeded every goal we had set out to accomplish. We saw the world, and in the process made half of it fall in love with us and the other half wish us dead. We released records that will surely be regarded as classics in the years to come. We made life long friends in faraway places. Perhaps most importantly, four best friends watched each other grow from boys to men."

Formed in 2001, the group has previously released material with Happy Couples Never Last Records and Revelation Records, among others.

"We've made records that will surely be regarded as classics." f*** OFF! I'd only heard of this band ONCE before today and it wasn't a good thing I heard either. Needlessly egotistic it seems.

i hate not knowing who bands are. so i looked them up, heres what wikipedia says about them

"On their earlier work, their music incorporated elements of punk rock in a jazz-oriented improvisational and constructional sequence, whist later works incorporate a more noise and lo-fi approach. Their name is taken from a book by Greil Marcus.

In 2005, while on tour with the Blood Brothers, they interviewed with Ken Cheesy while he was producing the Ken Burns documentary series Jazz.

The band are known for their at times confrontational live shows. Whilst performing each member wears a red armband with "PLOT" written in a white circle, intentionally mimicking the armbands worn by members of the Nazi Party. However none of the band have Nazi beliefs, as several members of the band are of Jewish descent and openly homosexual, and this is done purely as a shock tactic and as a tie in with their Nazi-themed album, Love in the Fascist Brothel.
Live shows often include "everything from smashing the stage, molesting the microphone to random acts of homo-erotic behaviour." Welchez often walks into the crowd and will kiss, touch or undress members of the audience, especially men, which some people take offense to. Welchez also claims they caused a "near riot" in Salt Lake City, and caused a "piss waterfall" in Baltimore, which lead to them being banned from playing in the city. [1]

The Plot have won the San Diego Music Award's "Best Punk Act" award two years running, in both 2005 and 2006."

wow, sounds like they suck
