The Mighty Mighty BossToneS have anounced their breakup, the band confirmed via a statement posted to its website on Thursday. The group has recorded 11 albums and 10 EP’s since forming in Boston, MA back in 1983.

“After decades of brotherhood, touring the world and making great records together we have decided not to continue on as a band,” the band wrote in its statement. “Above all, we want to express our sincere gratitude to every single one of you who have supported us. We could not have done any of it without you. Love Always, The Mighty Mighty BossToneS.”

On Friday, the band then added a bit of levity to the situation, taking to Instagram and posting a video of the earth splitting in half set to the tune of their When God Was Great track, “Bruised”.

While the band has undergone several iterations since its inception in 1983, including a hiatus from 2004 to 2007, vocalist Dicky Barrett, bassist Joe Gittleman, tenor saxophonist Tim “Johnny Vegas” Burton, and dancer (“Bosstone”)/manager Ben Carr have remained members since the beginning. Alongside guitarist Nate Albert, drummer Josh Dalsimer, and trumpeter Tim Bridwell, The Mighty Mighty BossToneS released their first record, Devil’s Night Out, in 1989 via Taang! Records.

Best known for “The Impression That I Get”, the 1997 hit song that appeared on the band’s fifth studio album, Let’s Face It, the BossToneS would continue to be a mainstay in the American ska scene throughout their lengthy career. The group is often credited with launching the American third-wave ska scene and pioneering the ska-core genre, which combines elements of ska and hardcore punk.

A total of six albums made it to the Billboard 200 chart, with Let’s Face It reaching No. 27 on the chart dated July 12th, 1997. Let’s Face It would spend 50 weeks on the Billboard 200.
