As years go, 2016 hasn’t been the worst for band splits. After a turbulent few years in some bands history, perhaps the dust is finally starting to settle.
However, 2016 has seen the end of some iconic bands, and sealed the fate of a few others, who promise final albums and tours in 2017.
So let’s take a look at some of the victims of 2016!
The quartet, hailing from Brighton, released their debut record Feel It Faster in 2014, but decided to call time on the band this year. It all seemed to be going so well. The lads even dropped ‘Invisible Lovers’, a previously unheard song, at the turn of 2016.
The band took to social media to announce the split to their fans.
You can read the full message below.
“It’s not an easy thing for us to tell you all, but the time has come for us to call it a day. The four of us are still best mates and still as close as we’ve ever been, but we’ve simply reached the end of the line as a band. It’s difficult to explain why, but various things have happened over the last couple of years that forced us into a long period of inactivity, draining the life out of us and resulting in a lack of enthusiasm. It would be totally unfair for us to continue doing this without putting 100% ourselves into it.”
“Despite all that, we’ve had an absolute blast over the last few years and we can’t thank you all enough for believing in us.
Big love to you all. Over and out. x”
