Iconic '80s metal band Manowar have called it quits after 36 years as a band. The NYC group posted a lengthy note on Facebook (read it below) detailing their disbandment. Before you get too totally bummed, note that the group will embark on a farewell tour.
Details have yet to be revealed, but the message mentions that it will kick off in Germany and go 'round the world. The group's last album of original was The Lord of Steel, back in 2012.

The Gods And Kings Tour was a groundbreaking moment in our career. The stage, sound, video and you, our fans, were magnificent!
Coming off such an amazing tour it was clear that the next time we must go even bigger and beyond anything we have ever done; something that will fulfill every Manowarrior’s dreams.
Then that will be the ultimate moment to say Thank You and farewell!
The Final Battle will begin in Germany and take us all over the world to say goodbye to all of you.
