It was announced last night that Faithless will be splitting up at the end of their European tour.
Maxi Jazz made this statement through the band's website:
'After 15 years and six albums I think we've probably made our collective point by now and that it's time to close the book and return to the library.
'We've had, with you, the most unbelievable, epic and moving experience, stretching over years and tens of thousands of miles. Joyful, exhilarating and empowering, we never for a moment thought an affair could last this long.
'Quite naturally people grow, change and leave the things of youth behind them. You've not only brought us with you, but introduced us to y'children too! What're you like..?
'The album 'The Dance Never Ends' was written and produced for you, as a thank you, but also as a goodbye.. the tour schedule has been particularly hectic as we attempt to visit as many territories as there are people who wanna see us.. And say thank you.
'If I devoted the rest of my life to the task, I could NEVER thank you enough. I have memories that will still be with me in my next life.
'But, like when writing a song, you always just 'know' when it's finished... this is and was the 'Thank YOU And Goodbye' tour and to be truthful, I really hope you just pick up the ball of your life.. And RUN WITH IT!!'
The band's last show will take place in a homecoming fashion at The Brixton Academy, London on 8th April 2011.
