British band Little Man Tate has devastated fans by announcing its members are to split.
The quartet formed in 2005, but after four years together they've decided to go their separate ways.
In an announcement on their MySpace blog, the group tells fans, "It's something that we have sat down and discussed at length for a while now and we have decided that after a good innings, we've achieved what we set out to do and it's time we moved on to other things.
"We're all still good mates and we'll carry on supporting each other whatever we decide to go on and do from here."
The band will perform one last gig in their hometown of Sheffield, England in October (09).
