You Say Party have announced they have split up.

The Vancouver band, who were originally called You Say Party! We Say Die!, but changed their name after the death of their drummer Devon Clifford last year, made their split public yesterday (April 14).

In a statement, bassist Stephen O'Shea said: "Becky [Ninkovic - vocals], Derek [Adam - guitar] and I are announcing the immediate cease to activity as You Say Party. Call it a hiatus. Call it a break. Call it whatever you want."

It continues: "It's been a hard year for us. Not a bad year. We've experienced wonderful support from people. But you've got to listen to your body and your mind when it begins to revolt against what you think it is you have to do."

You Say Party were together for seven years. They released four studio albums and a remix LP last year.
