Sharks breaks up.

The UK rock group Sharks has called it quits today which was announced through a Facebook post on their official band page. They had the following to say:

"To all our fans,

We're sorry to announce that the four of us have decided to end our journey as Sharks.
Unfortunately all of our upcoming dates have been cancelled and we have no plans as of yet to play any final shows. We sincerely apologise to anyone who has bought tickets or were planning to buy tickets to any of these shows. On a positive note, we have just finished making a brand new music video for 'Gold' with our good friend Tom Lacey, which we'll be releasing for all of you in the coming weeks. We will also be holding a sale on all of the remaining Sharks shirts we have available, none of which will be re-printed.

We want to thank all of you for the incredible support you've given us over the last six years. We've been lucky enough to take Sharks all over the world and befriend many wonderful people along the way. It's given us so much joy to share our music with you. So with this farewell, we leave you with three records of which we are immensely proud of—The Joys of Living 2008-2010, No Gods, and Selfhood—which we hope you'll continue to enjoy long into the future.

We would also like to send a special thanks to our close friends and family and the great team of people we've had the pleasure of working with over the years -- Oliver Mitchell, Ross Warnock, Matthew Gordner and everyone at Rise Records, Ben Husted and Raw Power Management, Andy Somers and The Agency Group, BB Gun Press, Coffeebreath & Heartache, Vinyl Junkie and Swagger City Records.

Thank you, friends!
James, Andrew, Sam and Carl xxxx

Just listened to their new LP the other day & was a tad disappointed. Saw them live earlier this year & was also a tad disappointed. Talented guys, but it seems something was just not clicking in 2013.

Yeah you're right about their new LP. It's a real shame they don't play any final shows though.

Damn this sucks. I really didn't think Selfhood was as bad as everyone seems to think. These guys had some good jams and it's sad to see them go. Oh well, life goes on.
