The Allman Brothers band will take the occasion of their 45th anniversary to wind down on the heels of the announcements that their two guitarists, Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks, will exit the band at the end of 2014.

In an interview with Relix magazine, band leader Gregg Allman said "This is it—this is the end of it," adding, "45 years is enough and I want to do something else, anyway. Everyone has their own real good perspective bands."

Word of the band's sunset follows the joint decision of the band's two guitarists, Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks, to depart the Allman ensemble to focus on their respective solo projects after 2014.

As word of Haynes' and Trucks' coming departures set in at the start of the year, tickets for the band's annual Beacon Theatre residency quickly ramped up in demand, prompting the addition of added shows to bring the total to 14 shows. The band currently has two festival bookings on its 2014 itinerary following the Beacon run. They'll play the WANEE Festival in April and Montage Mountain in August.

Allman doesn't completely close the door on possible Allman activity down the road. "Who's to say?" he said to Relix, "We may get together every five years and just do one play at a time."
