“Until we meet again” – Spring King announce split

The four-piece have also cancelled their upcoming 2019 shows in London and Manchester

Spring King have announced that they are splitting up.

The Macclesfield four-piece formed in 2013, releasing their debut album ‘Tell Me If You Like To’ in June 2016. A second album, ‘A Better Life’, was released back in August. The band were also notably the first act to ever be played on Apple Music’s Beats 1.

Spring King confirmed this evening (November 20) that they have “decided to call it a day”. Writing in “a message to all that have supported us”, the band said they were, “thankful for everyone that has come to our shows, screamed at the top of their lungs, bought our music, wore our t-shirt and joined the spirit of the band in the pit.”

“Your support was something we never took for granted and we are immeasurably grateful and will take that sense of positivity and energy forward into whatever we do next.” See the band’s full statement below.

Spring King also confirmed that they have cancelled their upcoming shows in London and Manchester in January as they “felt like it would be a disservice to the music and to all of you if our hearts weren’t fully in it.” Those gigs were set to take place at the O2 Forum Kentish Town and O2 Ritz Manchester on January 19 and 26 respectively.

“Until me meet again, take care and look after yourselves!” the band signed off by saying.

Spring King have long been linked to The 1975 – back in August, Matty Healy shared the “pop fact” which connected Spring King with The 1975 side project Drive Like I Do.
