“After 10 years of making music as The Blood Brothers, we have made the collective decision that our time together has come to an end.

“We feel extremely fortunate to have spent such a deeply memorable and amazing part of our lives with each other. At this point, however, we feel it’s best that our futures move forward on separate paths.

“We’d like to express our sincerest thanks and gratitude to all the bands we’ve played with, individuals who have helped us make our records, and fans whohave come to our shows and picked up our music throughout the years.

“Your friendship, support and love hold such a profoundly special place in each of our hearts. We hope that the memories you attach to our music are as fond as those you have given us.

“Thank you and take care, we’ll miss all of you.”

Rumors of the breakup began to surface this summer as vocalist Johnny Whitney and guitarist Cody Votolato’s side band, Jaguar Love, began to pick up steam, most notably with an opening stint on the West Coast leg of the Queens Of The Stone Age tour.
