Cult metal band HIMSA are to split after a final show in their native Seattle, Washington.
The group, which has been together for over a decade, will say farewell to fans at a show at Seattle's El Corazon on 16 August (08).
A statement from bassist Derek Harn reads, "Having sacrificed everything we had in order to ensure the band's survival it's time to let it go.
"We've got a great label. We're getting along, we've toured and we're fine. It's all good. We're leaving it at that... There appears to be no acrimony or unpleasantness, simply the end of a blistering, phenomenal, tumultuous era of the metal that HIMSA permeated into the modern musical landscape."
