It's true.

They're gonna do two more albums and one more tour, and then that's it. So, at least you get a little more of them before it's completely over.

Yes, I can verify, I was at the show when Reese announced it. They are touring this fall, and will release two more CDs (one of them is the "silly" album they've been talking about for awhile). And they promised to play their last show (probably next December) in Denver! :)

It is a happy break-up (nobody is mad at anybody), and the reason Reese gave was that they felt God was telling them to spend time on other things. Such as Scum of the Earth, the church the band started in Denver. There was no mention of Brave Saint Saturn (the side project of several members of FIF), but I know they are releasing a new album early next year (March or April if I remember correctly).

It is still sad, FIF is the reason I ever started listening to Christian music in the first place.

I'm glad to see that they don't feel so institutionalized by the band and its impact on the Christian music industry that they won't get out of it if they feel God is taking them elsewhere. Such an example should be followed, in my ever-so-humble opinion... oh, how many people I know who are all-too-comfortable where they are...
