Did Hostage Calm Actually Just Split Up Three Weeks After Releasing ‘Die On Stage’?

It's hard to tell what's real and what's not with this lot when it comes to the internet. But it kind of looks like Hostage Calm just split up. 

Three weeks ago, Hostage Calm released their fourth album 'Die On Stage'. It's really quite great and we play it a lot.

But this evening, the Connecticut punk / hardcore / pop / surf / everything quintet have posted a mesage across all their social networks that says they're not a band anymore.

Hostage Calm has broken up. It's too soon, it's too young, and it hurts too much. 

All planned shows are canceled. We are still figuring out if and when there will be any final shows.

I want to personally thank every one of you who supported us over the years. You shared so much more with us than you'll ever know. From our music to our politics, you helped make a bunch of Wallingford kids' foolish dreams a reality. It was the great privilege of our young lives.

To all of you who've connected with us, who've grown with us, who've loved, changed, cried, lived with us - and to all of you who will yet - Just know that we loved what we did, and we could never have done it alone. "I've been a hero, and I've been a fool. And all of it for you."

Yours Forever,
Hostage Calm

The band dropped off Citizen's North American tour earlier this week. They were scheduled to take part in Man Overboard's UK and European run later this year.
