Tribes have announced that they have split up after four years together.

The London-based band made the announcement this morning (November 7) with posts on their official Facebook and Twitter pages. The band released their second album 'Wish To Scream' earlier this year. In 2012 Tribes won Best New Band at the NME Awards and opened the NME Awards Tour alongside Azealia Banks, Metronomy and headliners Two Door Cinema Club.

The statement released online announcing the split reads as follows: "We are sad to announce that we will no longer be writing and performing together as Tribes. Thank you to everyone who supported us along the way. We are proud of what we achieved together. You gave us the best four years of our lives so far."

Tribes released two albums in total, their debut album 'Baby' in 2012 and 'Wish To Scream' earlier this year (2013). Their singles include tracks such as 'Sappho', 'We Were Children' and 'How The Other Half Live'. In January Tribes frontman Johnny Lloyd released a novel he wrote titled A Journey Through The Heart Of A Pig.
