Yes, they're finished as a unit--but before they go, AoF wants to go out with a big farewell tour. Hell, after all they've accomplished in their ten years together, it's the right thing to do. Here's what George Petit says:
Now that the dust has settled, and everyone has gone down their separate paths, I think it's important to get proper closure on 10 years and share it with the our fans. After this we can leave Alexis in our rear view and remember it fondly, not as something we had to escape.
There's also the matter of a vinayl box set which will include LPs of every studio album along with out-of-print 7-inch EPs llke Math Sheet Demos, Crisis b-sides, Insulation Tapes and BBC Sessions. The box set will also feature a photo booklet and other exclusive items. More information coming soon.
