Dirty Pretty Things split up

As told to NME today, Dirty Pretty Things have split up. In a statement issued today, the band said:

It is with some sadness we announce the farewell of the Dirty Pretty Things. It’s been a glorious three years which we all would gladly live out again, but it is time for us to try new things (not The Libertines).

We are reluctant to give up touring but will give the last waltz everything. We have and are determined to go out as we came in, after which we all have other ventures to be getting on with and splendid future plans.

Heartfelt thanks to all who made it what it was, much love and we’ll see you on the road.

Score one for opposers of indie landfill.

Too soon?

  • Not too soon at all. Mind you, for one thrilling moment I thought it actually said The Dirty Epics has split…

  • I read it as that too Johnny!

  • But did you also read “Bing Crosby leaves Bell X1”? I think a trip to Specsavers is in order…
