Norwegian hardcore outfit JR Ewing are to split in the autumn.
The band will honour their remaining dates - including an appearance at the Roskilde Festival - before going their separate ways after the summer.
A statement is currently posted under the news section of their website, selected 'highlights' below.
"We are truly sad to announce that by the fall of 2006 JR Ewing will no longer be a band. After eight years we feel it's time to move on. This has been a very hard decision for us, as we all love each others company and feel our music is as relevant today as when we started out in 1998.
"JR Ewing has been to over 20 countries in our time as a band, and we feel we've seen and experienced more in these eight years than we expected to do in a lifetime. We've met an incredible amount of inspiring people who have encouraged us on our way, and made us feel welcome even when thousands of miles from home.
"It's hard to for us to explain what we've been trying to do with our music, but the one thing we know is that we have wanted to be challenging from day one. We have not done what people have expected us to, and we've been unafraid of change. Repetition Is Failure.
"What now? Well, it's not over quite yet. There's a batch of shows that have been booked for a while which mostly includes festivals throughout the summer. We hope to see you all there, so we can make these last shows really count. We will be digging up some songs we haven't played for quite some time, so we promise something for everyone."
