Rochester, NY hardcore act How We Are have announced their impending breakup.
There are several factors causing us to make this decision but after some discussions and silly arguments we're on the same page and feel this is the best decision. [...] Things are ending on good terms and as bummed as we are that it'll be over soon we feel it's better to go out on a high note than wait until no one cares.


The band, who released their debut full-length To Teach a Hundred last year via the now-defunct Triple Attack Records, has details on their final shows available via their MySpace page.

Vocalist Rory Vangrol will continue on in his metal/hardcore outfit Achilles, who released their second full-length, Hospice, this past week.
We just wanted to make a formal announcement that after 2.5 years as a band we've decided to call it a day. There are several factors causing us to make this decision but after some discussions and silly arguments we're on the same page and feel this is the best decision. I won't go into details, but I'm sure if you talk to anyone of us we'd be glad to explain it. Things are ending on good terms and as bummed as we are that it'll be over soon we feel it's better to go out on a high note than wait until no one cares. We have 7 shows left and all will be with some of our closest friends, with the last one being here in Rochester on June 23. Some of them are listed, the others are coming soon. Thanks to everyone who's cared.

Moving on,
How We Are
