Give Up The Ghost has broken up. Here's the message they posted on their website:

After four years and eight months of ups and downs…give up the ghost is done. Due to health and personal reasons…we thought that it was time to call it a day. We have had many of the best times of our lives, and some of the worst. But thats what made us who we were.

A huge thank you to every kid who has supported us, bands that have toured with us, and people around the world who have worked with us. That is truly the most important thing to us…to thank you. We killed it. Good night. xo

The band gained notoriety in the past few years due to a prolonged legal battle over the name American Nightmare with a Philadelphia group of the same name. After a name change, last year saw the release of the well received We're Down Til We're Underground [review].
