Pendulum have announced that they have split up.

The Australian dance rockers released three studio albums in a 10-year career, with their most recent effort 'Immersion' coming out in 2010. They have also been a fixture on the festival circuit in recent years, playing over 30 festivals across Europe last summer.

The band's multi-instrumentalist and main songwriter Rob Swire [pictured on the right], who is currently touring with his side-project Knife Party, announced the news, writing on his official Twitter account Twitter.com/rob_swire: "There will be no further Pendulum live shows. There are no current plans for a new album in 2013."

Swire also confirmed that Knife Party was very much his priority in a recent interview with Australian radio station Triple J, saying when asked about the future of Pendulum: "The Knife Party thing is going so well we don't really feel like going back to junior school anytime soon."

He continued: "We're having too much fun with this project. It's also great because Pendulum towards the end sort of felt like we were doing it because we had to and that's never a fun way to do music. Whereas Knife Party is pretty much solely us doing what we want to and if no one likes it we don't care."

It looks as though the name Pendulum will still continue to operate, with members Paul "El Hornet" Harding and Ben "The Verse" Mount continuing to book DJ sets under the band's name.
