LA indie-pop act Pepper Rabbit have decided to throw in the towel. After two records and several years on tour, the members of the band have decided to pursue other interests. A more complete statement was posted to their Facebook page, and can be read in part below:

In summation, it doesn’t matter why Pepper Rabbit had to end, that will stay within the people involved. But I have to say that everyone who ever bought a record, illegally downloaded a record, came to or snuck in to one of our shows, I thank you dearly from the bottom of my heart. And to everyone professionally involved with Pepper Rabbit, and to all the bloggers and publications that supported the band, I can’t thank you enough for your support. Not many people take chances on other people, let alone themselves. I never took a chance on myself until Pepper Rabbit. And I am thankful everyday that I’ve learned to take a chance on myself… Everyone deserves a chance, so give it to them, it doesn’t take much effort. It doesn’t take much effort to help people explore their passion. And that counts for life, not just music. At the end of the day, bands break up for many reasons, and at the end of the day it doesn’t really matter why. All that matter is the music. Remember that.
