Vanna Break Up After 13 Years, Announce Farewell Tour Dates
Post-hardcore favorites Vanna have announced the end of their career. To say goodbye to fans, Vanna will embark on over a dozen North American shows with support from Lions, Lions, Ghost Key and more.
After forming in 2004, Vanna rose to popularity fairly quickly after releasing a number of EPs before eventually releasing their 2007 debut full-length, Curses. Vanna unleashed their sixth and final album, All Hell, in 2016, reaching No. 2 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart.
The band issued this statement to fans earlier today (May 2):
Our band has always strived to take the negative in our lives and use it to fuel positive change. To foster good in a world that can be so bad. That and to cause the biggest ruckus with our fans while doing so. The relationship we share with you all and with our music has brought us to places we never dreamed of going; countries we never thought we'd step foot on, stages we only dreamed of playing. But the biggest impression left is the overwhelming sense of family that this scene has given us and let us be a part of. It's helped us become the men we are today and, in a way, is partly responsible for different parts of our lives blossoming.
After touring for over 10 years, living our lives on the road and on the stage, it's time for us to go chase those other dreams that may have waited on a shelf. We've started families, careers, and new lives, all the while spending our nights sweating in a club or a Warped Tour parking lot with you and those sides of us and our lives need attention as much as Vanna did.
Words can't begin to express what you have all done for us. In keeping with always sharing ourselves with you, we now turn to you to share one last time with us. Let's make this tour a celebration of every moment and memory as well as make a bunch of new ones with some amazing friends and bands.
Come sing your hearts out and inevitably cry your eyes out with us as we leave a little piece of Vanna on every stage. This isn't goodbye forever — it's just a 'We'll see you around.' Our music will be here whenever you need it; we truly love you and we will miss you all. But remember, all good things must come to an end, but all good things can begin again.
Vanna will be offering VIP tickets to fans on their final tour. Check out the full list of farewell dates below along with support acts for each gig.
