They will split in 2019 after their final shows which were also announced in the statement, with the band saying “Let’s give LTA the send of she deserves! I wouldn’t even know where to begin explaining just how truly grateful we all are so we’ll just have to show you on stage.”

The final shows are in May 2019. Check out the full list of tour dates below:

Thursday May 9th Manchester Academy

Friday 10th Birmingham O2 Academy

Saturday 11th London O2 Brixton Academy

The full statement reads:

“After much deliberation, we’ve heavy heartedly decided to take a break from the band. It wasn’t an easy decision to make but we feel that it’s definitely the right one and one we hope everyone can learn to accept and respect. We’ve had an absolutely unimaginable 11 years making and playing music for people who have completely changed our lives for the better and we honestly can’t thank you enough for that. But we feel that we’d be doing all of you a disservice continuing this way. We want to take this opportunity to show our appreciation to every single one of you for the unfaltering support we’ve received over the duration of our musical lives so far. We feel SO fucking privileged, honoured and lucky that we were able to achieve the things we have over the years. We managed to surpass all expectations and live beyond our wildest dreams …and it’s all thanks to the fans of this band. So for that – thank you.

We all have very exciting new projects in the works that we can’t wait to share with you. We’re also going to be playing the best shows we ever have which are planned for May and a song that was recorded, produced and mixed by Mike and Ben from the band to coincide with them.

Let’s give LTA the send off she deserves! I wouldn’t even know where to begin explaining just how truly grateful we are so we’ll just have to show you on stage.

Lower Than Atlantis

2007 – Forever”

Fans took to social media to express sadness at the news and share memories.
