Nashville's Be Your Own Pet are calling it quits. The band announced:

To all of our fans, we are sad to bring you the news that our upcoming shows in the UK are going to be our last as a band. We thank you for all your love and support these past few years. It's been a blast, but the time has come for the four of us to go our separate ways.

Those dates can be found here.

The band released Be Your Own Pet in 2006 via Thurston Moore's Ecstatic Peace! label, followed by Get Awkward this year. The band specialized in bratty, adolescent garage punk, with much of their critical acclaim coming from indie rock circles. This, combined with recent disparaging comments made on the Warped Tour made them a polarizing band among more traditional punk fans.
