Twelve Gauge Valentine Breaking Up After Winter Tour

Twelve Gauge Valentine will disband following one final winter tour. Formed in 2003, the group released their debut full-length with Solid State Records in 2006. The following statement has been issued:

"Alright so with every beginning there must ultimately be an end. With that being said, we are embarking on one final tour this winter with our very good friends The Handshake Murders and soon to be friends Memphis May Fire! We hope to see as many old friends as possible and still make some new ones.

"Twelve Gauge Valentine has been a part of our lives for nearly five years now. We started just as many bands do playing around in one of our houses then progressing to a few locals shows. Progressing from one out of state show here and one there to becoming a full-time touring band. It's been an amazing ride that we wouldn't give up for anything in the world. We have seen so many places and done so many things due to this band that I would never of thought possible. We really hope as many of you guys come out as possible to these final shows. We're keeping it short due to other obligations for that I apologize. We will be playing songs from Shock Value and one or two from our old ep Exclamationaire! It's been amazing guys, seriously. Thanks to everyone who has been there or helped us at all over the past years. It means so much to us. Please try to make it out to one of these last shows. We got one last time to hangout and party it up!

"On a more uplifting ending note, don't expect us all to be giving up on music so soon. By the beginning of the new year we should be able to announce some really big new stuff we have in the oven!! It will be exciting for any Twelve Gauge fans and many new fans hopefully to join us on our new journey. Thank you guys so much again! Hope to see you all out there soon. Until then have happy holidays guys!"
