The band has been playing since 1981 and each of its current members are in their 50s. There was talk last year of a new album on the way along with rumors earlier in January about the band doing a new version of the 1990-1991 Clash of the Titans tour featuring Megadeth, Sepultura and Testament.

No dates have been announced for their farewell tour, so stay tuned.
