The Stills have announced they have split up.

The Canadian band confirmed the decision in a statement to their fans after mulling over "how and when" to break the news for a number of months.

"Ultimately, the best decision for each one of us, and in order for each of us to live fully, creatively, and freely, being true to our hearts, this had to happen," the band said.

"Now that the book closes, we can look on the journey and see it as one trip, from beginning to end; one complete and perfectly imperfect universe," they continued.

The Montreal five-piece were together for 11 years. They released three studio albums - 2003's 'Logic Will Break Your Heart', 2006's 'Without Feathers' and their final record 'Oceans Will Rise' in 2008.

You can read the full statement at their publicity company's website, Canvasmedia.ca.
