http://www.themusic.co.uk/ from 4/21/11. Sad for me to see these guys split up and go their separate ways. I have always liked their music and think they have alot to offer to all music fans. 'Ghost Hands' is their final download and basically a Thank You to all the fans out there. This is what lead singer Robert Harvey had to say about the song... "We love the track and it just seemed a shame to leave it gathering dust for ever. It's good to go out with something positive and new and we think it deserves to see the light of day. Hopefully the fans will agree - again we want to thank everyone who's been with us on this journey and look forward to celebrating an amazing ten years this summer."
Below is what was posted on The Music's official website in regards to the split up of the band...
After 10 years, three albums and some unforgettable live performances, The Music have announced a series of final shows in Japan and England before going their separate ways at the end of this Summer.
The Music formed in Kippax near Leeds in 1999 after attending high school together and came to prominence in 2002 with the release of their hugely acclaimed eponymous debut album. Their song "The People" was a radio hit throughout the world and saw them tour extensively throughout Europe, America, Australia as well as numerous trips to Japan, where the band enjoyed a great rapport with a fervent and loyal fanbase. Two further albums followed, 2004's "Welcome To The North" and 2008's "Strength In Numbers". Over the last decade, the band have played main stages at every major festival from Fuji Rock to Lollapalooza, Glastonbury, Reading/Leeds and Big Day Out, sell out shows throughout the world and gained a reputation as an incendiary live band. All good things though, come to an end, and The Music have decided that it's the right moment for them to call time on the band and start new chapters in their musical careers, but not before one last batch of shows to thank the people who have supported the band throughout their careers so far and go out on an absolute high.
