Phantods breaking up

Phantods are breaking up. The quirky Columbus rockers, who melded pop melodies with hard rock guitars better than most, will perform their final show July 21 at Skully's before going on an indefinite hiatus. They posted this statement today on Facebook:

It is bittersweet to announce that July 21st will be our last show! We will be going on hiatus for an undetermined amount of time, in order to explore other things in life ;) We have had so many amazing years in Phantods that have been provided by all of your support and love. The night before our last show, we will be joining Arbor Ave. Films to watch a screening of the documentary that they made about us. They followed us around for over a year, getting behind the scenes shots and live footage. We'd love it if you joined us for both nights. We'll post more about that screening later in the week. Love you all!!

Turns out their recent single "Music is Dead" was more of a harbinger than we thought.
