Grizzly Bear have been dropping some hints their current tour with Florence and the Machine might be their last. Now, the band have confirmed that tonight's appearance in Toronto is their final show — at least for the foreseeable future.

On Instagram, the band posted a 2005 press photo, along with a goodbye message:

Additionally, singer Ed Droste posted on his Instagram story, "Today is also our last show!" along with a mind-blown emoji. This was followed by a couple of images of the band, complete with waving-hand emojis.

All of this corroborates recent statements from Grizzly Bear. Last month, they tweeted out a snippet from an interview with SF Weekly in which singer-guitarist Daniel Rossen said, "If you want to see us, and you can come see us, I recommend that you make it to these shows. Because I don't know when this is going to happen again."

Prior to a Los Angeles concert last month, Droste told LA Weekly, "I'm thinking of this Hollywood Bowl show as a last hurrah: 'See you later, everyone.'"

Grizzly Bear have been around since 2002, beginning as Ed Droste's solo project and growing into a four-piece band. They've released five albums, most recently last year's Painted Ruins.
