The Strypes Split Up

It's last orders for the Irish rhythm 'n' blues band...

The Strypes have decided to split up.

The band's raw, stripped down take on rhythm 'n' blues was injected with a punkish energy, akin to Dr Feelgood for the 21st century.

Releasing two albums, the group played a series of exhaustive tours across the land, taking their R&B sound to every nook and cranny of the UK and beyond.

It's time for The Strypes to call it quits, however, with the four-piece sharing a valedictory statement on social media.

Thanking fans for their support, the band say they have been "from Scotshouse to Tokyo and back again…"

Check out the statement below.
