TIME 'GENTLEMEN', PLEASE! Afghan Whigs Tickets

The cult US rockers call it a day...

TIME 'GENTLEMEN', PLEASE!
THE AFGHAN WHIGS have split after 14 years as a band, NME.COM can exclusively reveal.

In a brief statement released today by their parent record company Sony Music, the band blamed the "geographical distance" between them for bringing an end to their time together. Only frontman Greg Dulli will continue making music.

The statement in full reads:

"After 14 years and six albums, The Afghan Whigs have disbanded. Singer/songwriter Greg Dulli says that the geographical distance, which for so long kept the band fresh, began to work against them. Dulli lives in Los Angeles, bassist John Curley and drummer Michael Horrigan in Cincinnati and guitarist Rick McCollum in Minneapolis. The band remain friends and, apart from the often cruel and unsentimental banter between members, still plan to call each other on holidays.

"Of the four, only Dulli has announced his intention to continue making records. He is currently recording the follow up to his debut album, 'Twilight As Played By The Twilight Singers'. In a joint statement, the band says: "It was a blast. We'd like to thank everyone who took the ride with us and let us ride with them."
