Posting a photo of a red neon sign reading “closed” on their Facebook page, indie rockers Guided By Voices announced the end of the band this afternoon.

“Guided By Voices has come to an end. With 4 years of great shows and six killer albums, it was a hell of a comeback run. The remaining shows in the next two months are unfortunately canceled. Our sincere apologies to those that have purchased tickets and made travel plans. Thanks to everyone who has supported GBV” the band wrote on their Facebook page. They posted a link to the band’s website with all upcoming dates crossed out.

The group enjoyed a successful run in the nineties before calling it quits in 2004. They reunited in 2010 for the aforementioned “comeback run.”

Guided By Voices was scheduled to play on Fun Fun Fun Festival’s Orange stage on Saturday, Nov. 8. Transmission Entertainment, the company that books the festival, also announced that the band would play a FFF Nites afterparty earlier this week.
