Citing “an endless series of personal difficulties,” New Jersey screamo kings Thursday have announced they’re calling it quits after their upcoming North American tour.

“We haven’t had any falling out and are all still close,” the band said in an offiical statement. “I’m sure that we will continue to create, in some capacity, together. We’ve talked about turning Thursday into something else: a non-profit, a band that only records sporadically, a collection of other projects … Underneath it all, the personal circumstances involved make it impossible to continue Thursday in the spirit that has made it special. So, we stop. For now, at least.”

Formed in 1997, Thursday released six studio albums and helped redefine punk rock for the ’00s. The band is best known for 2001’s ferociously emotive ‘Full Collapse,’ an era-defining record that continues to resonate with fans.
