Scottish rockers The Dykeenies are splitting up after seven years together.
The New Ideas hitmakers broke the news on their Facebook.com page on Tuesday (31Jan12), and drummer John Kerr told fans he's devastated about the decision.
He wrote, "Words cannot describe my emotions at the moment as I'm truly gutted we've had to call it a day... I personally will retire as my love affair with music will die with The Dykeenies... I do not want to indulge (sic) in the reasons for the split and the decision was one that I personally was against.
"Please understand that we did give it our best shot and I only wish we coulda (sic) had one more last try but the band has decided otherwise."
The band released its second and final album Canyon of Echoes in October (11).
