Larrikin Love split up

Thamesbeat band decide to call it a day

Larrikin Love split up
Larrikin Love have split up, it has been announced today (May 4).

The group made their decision to call it a day earlier in the week, but have so far only told friends.

The band issued the following statement to NME.COM explaining why they will not continue: "Larrikin Love have announced today that they have split up. The band would like to thank all their fans for their support and love over the last two years and assure them that all is amicable between the four members."

However they added they would continue to make music, stating: "Further details of ongoing projects from all members will be announced in the fullness of time."

The group's future had been the subject of rumour for the last few days, although the first public confirmation of the their end came last night (May 3), when Jamie T - a friend of the group - dedicated his track ’Shelia’ to Larrikin Love during his Shepherd’s Bush Empire show in London last night (3).

The band, who consisted of Edward Larrikin, Micko Larkin, Alfie Ambrose and Coz Kerrigan, released one album - 'The Freedom Spark' - last year on Transgressive Records.
