Guns Up! Calling It Quits

Massachusetts hardcore outfit Guns Up! has officially announced plans to disband in early-2007. Formed in 2002, the group has released material with 1917 Records and Rocket Punch Records. The following statement has been issued:

"Four and a half years; hundreds of shows, three US tours, three East Coast trips, a European tour, countless weekends, three records, who knows how many demos...four guitar players, three drummers, three bass players, two vans, at least a few grand worth of broken equipment, and about 12,458 shirt designs later... Guns Up! is done. In brief, we've accomplished everything we could have ever hoped for. It's been a wild ride. We would like to thank Sean Riley, Sean McKendry, Luke Dedeus, Steve Zuretti, Ryan Phillips, Justin Paling, Chucky Edge, James Vitalo, Michael Dolloff and anyone/everyone else as well as every band that's helped us along the way. Your support and encouragement has been invaluable."

In addition to several shows the band currently has scheduled, they will play two final West Coast shows, and one final East Coast show. Here are the tour dates:

1/12 Anaheim, CA @ Chain Reaction w/ Sinking Ships, Shipwreck, and Violation
1/13 Ventura, CA @ Alpine w/ Sinking Ships, Shipwreck, and Violation
2/3 Haverhill, MA @ Welfare Records w/ Have Heart, Verse, Shipwreck, Harder the Fight, and Resist
