Read Yellow breaks up

"Basically,we have done eveything that we had ever wanted to do as a band," says Read Yellow's Evan in a Lemming Trial post. "All we ever wanted was to make music for our friends. Fortunately for us, it went beyond just playing parties in Amherst basements. The four of us are in agreement that now is a good time to bow out."

Fenway Recordings' Mark Kates confirmed today the group is breaking up.

Read Yellow's remaining shows are March 3 at T.T.'s with the Thermals (already sold out), March 9 in Brooklyn, and then a final gig March 22 at the Middle East with Lock & Key (a band with whom they were profiled for the Phoenix back in 2004).
