Haunted Graffiti no more, seemingly

American lo-fi artist Ariel Pink has seemingly parted company with his band, Haunted Graffiti.

Ariel Pink remains an errant, unpredictable artist. Sure, he might nestle into the bosom of 4AD that won't prevent the artist making the odd spur of the moment decision - such as breaking up his band.

Writing on Facebook over the weekend, Ariel Pink informed fans of his decision to split Haunted Graffiti:

"BROKE UP THE BAND TODAY
HAUNTED GRAFFITI R.I.P."

The move comes just a few days after Ariel Pink outlined plans for a new album. 'Mature Themes' will be released on August 20th, with the artist recently giving Spin a few ideas of what to expect.

"There are definitely not any links to my lo-fi origins" he said. "It's so diverse but so different from anything I've done before. In a sense, it's really the record I wanted to make back when I made 'Before Today', but couldn't due to pressures and different factors. We had time to let our hair down and try new things."

New track 'Baby' has already emerged online. A cover of the Donnie and Joe Emerson track, 'Baby' features guest vocals from Dâm-Funk. Set to be released as a one sided 12 inch on July 9th, you can listen to the cut HERE.

'Mature Themes' will be released on August 20th.
