Arcane Roots have announced that they are splitting up today (August 31), after twelve years together.
In a statement released on social media, the band said they took the decision “with heavy hearts.”
The statement read: “It is with heavy hearts, that we announce the end of this chapter of Arcane Roots.”
“Over the last 12 years, we have achieved more than we could have ever dreamed of and seen more of the world than we could have ever known. The smiles & voices of each of our fans from all over the world have been such an incredible source of light for us, that I don’t think we could ever truly impart the gratitude we have for all of your love & support over the years. Thank you. Always.”
They added: “Thank you to everyone in our team & those who ever pulled their sleeves up for us, you were our backbone and we will never, ever forget all that you gave us.”
