NME readers have reacted with joy to the news that LMFAO are to take a break from the music industry.

The electropop chart duo – made up of Redfoo and SkyBlu – announced the news earlier today (September 21), saying that they both wanted to pursue new personal and professional interests, reports AP.

"I feel like we've been doing this for so long, five or six years. And we're kind of like saying, well, let's just do what's natural and just kind of explore that, instead of like forcing it all the time," said Redfoo.

Music fans took to NME's Facebook page to express their delight at the news. Cherry Amber Wiles wrote, "The world is now a better place", while a similarly gleeful Aimee Foote wrote "this hasn't made my friday...THIS HAS MADE MY LIFE!:')" and William Knox said "Some faith in humanity has been restored...".

Meanwhile, commenting on the band's outlandish fashion sense, Guillermo Paz asked "What am I gonna do with all my zebra print tights?"

However, some fear was expressed over the duo's possible plans for solo material, with Brad Lednik writing: "Great... Now we're going to end up with two bands that are super annoying."

LMFAO released two albums, 2009's 'Party Rock' and 2011's 'Sorry For Party Rocking'.
