Published Oct 09, 2008Long running geeky New Jersey punk rock band the Ergs! have decided to split. In a post made on their MySpace blog last month, the band announced they were throwing in the towel due to the departure of their guitarist. Thankfully, the band have announced a slew of farewell shows, including dates in Montreal and Toronto.
