Test Icicles have split up.
The band, who recently denied rumours that they were to call it a day, have finally confirmed they are pulling the plug after cancelling their upcoming ShockWaves NME Awards Show supporting Nine Black Alps at London’s Hammersmith Palais on February 24 and their US tour.
A statement from the group said: “The band have just come off a European tour and are exhausted from the constant pressures of touring, subsequently they have cancelled their show at the NME Awards and US tour.”
They added: “The band will play their UK tour in April. Details of a final single to be taken from the album to announced. There are currently no plans to make another album or tour beyond this.”
Rumours have been circulating for weeks online that the trio would disband following their current touring commitments.
Guitarist Rory Atwell recently tried to deny these claims saying: “We are on a sold-out UK tour then onto sold-out dates in Europe and America with a new single and UK tour in April.”
However Atwell did hint that the band had no plans after the summer, adding: “Maybe [we’ll do] some festies, after that who knows, depends if anyone’s still interested!”

Glasgow Garage (April 18)
