Jet announced last night (March 26) that they have split up after 11 years together.
The band released three studio albums during their career and sold over 6.5 million records. Their 2003 debut ‘Get Born’, which contained the hit singles ‘Are You Gonna Be My Girl?’, ‘Cold Hard Bitch’ and ‘Rollover DJ’, sold over 3.5 million copies alone. They released their last album ‘Shaka Rock’ in 2009.
The band posted a statement about their split, which reads as follows: “After many successful years of writing, recording and touring we wish to announce our discontinuation as a group.”
They continued: “From the many pubs, theatres, stadiums and festivals all across the world it was the fans that made our amazing story possible and we wish to thank them all. Thank you, and good night.”
The group, who consisted of brothers Nic and Chris Cester, Cameron Muncey and Mark Wilson, have promised that they will attempt to keep “their music, legacy and brand alive through new licensing, publishing, merchandise, re-records and releases”.
All members will now focus on new projects, with Nic Cester and Mark Wilson already involved in a new band called DamnDogs.
