Irish band Royseven have split after 11 years together.

The group formed in 2003 and enjoyed success across Europe, especially in Germany and Switzerland.

The break-up was confirmed in a post on the band's Facebook.com page on Monday (31Mar14).

It reads: "With heavy hearts we've decided to bring down the curtain on our Royseven adventure. Rather than disappointment, we feel an overwhelming sense of gratitude and satisfaction for the last eleven years of creativity, performance and friendship.

"To those in Ireland, Germany, Switzerland and Great Britain who worked with us, supported or encouraged us, we'd like to thank you for helping to create experiences that were once mere childhood dreams."
