The Books Disband, Plan Last Releases

The Books are officially disbanding. Guitarist and vocalist Nick Zammuto told Pitchfork via email (without going into very many details because “I’m still too close to it to talk about it without getting angry”) that he would end The Books and focus a new project aptly entitled Zammuto.

However, Zammuto also said that fans will still be able to get a few more Books items later this year, including albums of b-sides and songs from soundtracks, a box set and an updated DVD.

For his new band, Zammuto is working with his brother Mikey on bass, drummer Sean Dixon and Books guitarist/keyboardist/violinist Gene Back for an eponymous debut album set to drop on April 3 through Temporary Residence. Between now and then, Zammuto has four scheduled performances, including a stint in Austin, Texas at South by Southwest. Check out the dates below.

3- North Adams, Mass. @ Mass MOCA
4- New York, N.Y. @ 92YTribeca
6- Allston, Mass. @ Brighton Music Hall
