Expire announce their third and final album

With regret

Following the announcement of their third album ‘With Regret’, Midwest hardcore band Expire also announced it would be their last.

The band who formed in 2009 have decided to call it a day, but not before an extensive world tour to say goodbye to the modern hardcore scene that they helped create.

In a statement on the bands Facebook page, it said: ‘Come Spring of next year, we’ll be putting the band to rest. There isn’t some huge explanation to give.

‘To put it simply, we all decided that we would rather end it on our terms and when we want to, rather than fade off.

‘We’ve never been the type to only play a few shows here and there or sit dormant for any amount of time. Expire started as a band that didn’t know how to slow down and that’s the way we’ll end it.

‘This band snowballed into something none of us planned for and before it’s done, we want to extend a very real thank you to anyone and everyone who had a part in it over the past 7 years.

‘Writing this comes with a pretty insane feeling, but really; thanks for supporting us, it’s been fun.’

‘With Regret’ will once again be released through Bridge9 records due out on September 23.
