Los Angeles-based metallers The Human Abstract have called it quits.

Last summer, vocalist Travis Richter left the group, stating that he wanted to spend more time with his family and pursue an audio production degree. The Human Abstract toured on with fill in singer Ryan Devlin, but never announced a permanent replacement for Richter.

According to Under the Gun Review, bassist Henry Selva posted the following message on his personal Facebook page:

"Folks, we are not looking for a new vocalist. We are not touring anytime soon. I think it's only fair you guys know that we're on 'break or hiatus if you will.' I don't know why we haven't said anything. I guess it's because there is always that 'maybe if something happens, etc..etc...' Or maybe it's hard for us to realize the reality of our situation, the band's situation, to finally let go. I'll be honest when I say the folllowing: Periphery and Never Say Die were our last tours together as a band."

Formed in 2004, The Human Abstract would go on to release three studio albums, including last year's critically acclaimed 'Digital Veil.'
