Tubthumping hitmakers Chumbawamba have split.
The British punk band announced the sad news to fans on its website on Monday (09Jul12).
The statement read: "That's it then, it's the end with neither a whimper, a bang or a reunion. Thirty years of ideas and melodies, endless meetings and European tours, press releases, singalong choruses..."
And apparently there's little hope for a future get together after the bandmates wrap up their 2012 live commitments: "We’ll play a few final times and then we'll hang up our guitars, trumpets and football rattles.
"We do, of course, reserve the right to re-emerge as Chumbawamba doing something else entirely (certainly not touring and putting out albums every 2 or 3 years). But frankly, that's not very likely."
The pop anarchists also had hits with Amnesia, Enough Is Enough and Top of the World (Ole, Ole, Ole).
