Pretty Girls Make Graves are calling it quits. A statement on their website made the announcement:
We are sorry to announce that our upcoming tour in May will be our last. Nick [Dewitt] quit the band and the rest of us feel like it wouldn't be right to continue on without him. The 5 of us feel very lucky to have met and worked with some truly amazing people over the years. Thank you all so much…
