Seattle quintet Pretty Girls Make Graves will disband after their forthcoming tour due to drummer Nick Dewitt’s pending departure, a post on the band’s website revealed. “We are sorry to announce that our upcoming tour in May will be our last,” the post read. “Nick quit the band and the rest of us feel like it wouldn’t be right to continue on without him. The five of us feel very lucky to have met and worked with some truly amazing people over the years. Thank you all so much.”

Logging a six-year long career, Pretty Girls Make Graves — whose name was pulled from a Smiths song of the same name and a quote by beat author Jack Kerouac — released what will now be their last album, Elan Vital, in 2006 on Matador. Dates for the band’s final tour this May have yet to be announced.
