Chart act Supergrass are to split after 17 years following a series of summer shows, it was announced today.
The band - whose hits include feelgood hit Allright, Moving and Richard III - said they were heading their separate ways due to "musical differences".
The group's Danny Goffey and Gaz Coombes have already launched their own spin-off act, The Hotrats.
Supergrass will round off their career with four farewell shows in June, starting at Glasgow Barrowlands on June 8, then Manchester's Academy, the Brixton Academy in London and a final show in Paris on June 11.
The band drew early acclaim with debut single Caught By The Fuzz in 1994 and went on to reach number two in the singles chart twice.
They recorded six albums but had to regroup in 2007 when bass player Mick Quinn suffered spinal injuries during a fall which led to Coombes and Goffey playing live as the Diamond Hoo Ha Men.
Although starting life as a trio, the line-up went on to include Coombes's brothers, Rob and Charly.
In a statement, the group said: "Thanks to everyone who has supported us over the years. We still love each other but, cliche notwithstanding, musical differences have led to us moving on and of course we all wish each other well in the future."Reuse content
