Rest in peace, Maccabees. It was good while it lasted. And it lasted a long time—14 years and four albums, to be exact.
The London indie-rock quintet announced today on social media that this is it. The band is no more. The members will continue to make music in some capacity, but that’s not set in stone just yet, their official statement explained. Farewell shows will be announced in the near future.
Read the band’s full statement via Twitter below, and reminisce in the glory of the Maccabees by listening to “Ayla” via the Paste Cloud beneath that.
