After 14 years, British band The Maccabees have decided to call it a day. The five-piece band that recently headlined Latitude Festival took to Twitter to share a statement about the decision.

The band’s most recent album Marks To Prove It was their first UK number 1. In their message, the band explicitly states that there have been no “fallings out” and that they are “not leaving the group behind as a divided force”. They go on to add that there are plans to continue making music, even though there are no concrete plans at this stage.
Furthermore, the band says that farewell shows will be announced “soon”.
We wish all band members the best for the future and are excited to hear about their new endeavours.
What do you think of the sudden split? Will you be going to any of the farewell shows? Let us know over on Twitter at @CelebMix!
