The Maccabees have issued a short statement confirming that they are to split.
The band recently headlined Latitude, and appeared to be on fine form during a sharp, muscular set.
In a fresh statement, though, The Maccabees have confirmed that they are no more.
“The decision has obviously been a difficult one,” the note explains, “given that The Maccabees has been such a huge part of our lives until now. We are very proud to be able to go out on our own terms, at our creative peak and off the back of the best and biggest shows we have ever done.”
The group deny that any ruptures have occurred, and take time to thank “anyone who has ever stood by our band”.
The note promises music from each member, with The Maccabees also confirming that they intend to play some farewell shows.
