As was previously reported, Sweden's Burst plans to breakup after their upcoming U.S. tour. The band issued the following statement about a final farewell show in Sweden:

"Brethren and…sisthren?

"First, we would like to send you all humble gratitude and reverence for all the response about our hiatus/break-up/whatever. I guess you don’t realize how many people derive meaning from what you do until you die (are we right, Kurt Cobain?). .... Aaaanyways, here be news:

"FINAL GIG: As we previously stated, we wanna go out with a big ass fanfare of a goodbye show in Sweden. The date has been set to December 18, and the venue will be Sticky Fingers in Burst home base Gothenburg, Sweden. And yeah, this really WILL be a special occasion:

"Since this is our last concert, we’d figured we’d do something awesome. Thus, the night will be divided into two sets. For the first part we will perform our last album Lazarus Bird in its entirety. Awesome for us, awesome hopefully for you too.

"The second part will consist of a sort of Best Of Burst, ie. choice cuts from all our albums: Origo, Prey On Life, Conquest: Writhe, In Coveting Ways, as well as one or two from the real early stuff. Also, we will invite some of the guest musicians we’ve employed on our albums during the years, which means that you’ll be hearing songs colored with live saxophone, Hammond, extra guitars, percussion etc etc. Tickets will be fairly cheap. We want this to be a great night for everyone."
