Milburn to split

Arctic Monkeys' mates announce farewell gig

Milburn have announced they are to split, ending months of speculation about the Sheffield band’s future.

In a statement posted on their Milburnmusic.com, the band claim that there has been “no falling out” and that they remain “friends and supporters of each other”.

“Not everyone in the music media understood us but you the fans did, and over the last two to three years we’ve shared some amazing experiences that we’ll never forget and we feel very privileged to have done so,” the statement explained.

“We want to sincerely thank every one of you that supported us along the way. It’s been overwhelming.”

The band plan to release two new songs – ‘The District Line’ and ‘Stay At Home’ – and play a farewell gig at Sheffield Academy on May 24.
