NEWS: On August 1, 2008, the band announced on their website that after finishing a small tour of England, they would be breaking up. The band posted the following message on their website; "To all of our fans, we are sad to bring you the news that our upcoming shows in the UK are going to be our last as a band. We thank you for all your love and support these past few years. It's been a blast, but the time has come for the four of us to go our separate ways". Jemina explained to NME why they broke up, She said that it wasn't really fun for them anymore, especially Jonas who was considering leaving the band. They didn't want to be in BYOP without Jonas, so they decided the best thing to do was to just call it a day. She also said that its better we split now 'while people still give a fuck' than drag it on and on when our hearts wern't in it anymore. She also quoted a Neil Young song (and Kurt Cobains suicide note) when she said 'someone once said "its better to burn out than to fade away" and maybe thats what we're doing'. On the brightside though, she said that Jonas Stein and John Eatherly would continue in Turbo Fruits, Nathan Vasquez will sill be part of Deluxin and she was heading to Oslo and Norway to write songs for a Jemina Pearl solo record which she said would be 'a little more mature'.

The music however, never dies. It's always there for us to listen to and remember one of the truely incredible bands!

    i remember that they didnt post on the warped site last year that these guys werent gonna be there. i spent the whole day freaking out because i REALLY wanted to see them. i stood at the list of bands and times just going "where is BYOP?" and eventually i just gave it up. i still listen to them every day. i love those guys. :'( but on the plus side, Jemina is going to make an AMAZING soloist. Good luck hun! i promise to buy the album the DAY it comes out!!! May 06
