People they come together, people they fall apart Empty The White Stripes split up

Yup

One of the most critically lauded bands of the early part of the previous decade, Jack & Meg White caused as many headlines for their mysterious relationship as for their albums. But having not toured in 4 years, and given Jack's many side-project bands, this hardly comes as a total surprise.

Interesting, all I really know by them is Icky Thump which is ...... elephant I suppose in a few years time they could always nab a new member or two and make a reunion of some icky thumpy sort. Thinking of INXS and we all know how that turned out. elephant

Funny you say that, probably their most acclaimed album was 2003's Elephant. Always seemed a bit un-special to me, I must say, but I don't deny Jack White clearly fires ideas like sparks off a catherine wheel.

If, as reports suggest, Meg is the problem, I don't see the band name being revived anytime soon, even though most critics suggested she was the Andrew Ridgeley of the outfit.

I've long thought it might be an idea to note bands who split, or indeed reform.

This week, JLS joined the ranks of those calling it a day. Despite a pretty successful run in the past 4-5 years since they finished 2nd on the UK version of The X Factor, they're using the end of their 5 album deal as a cue to go their separate ways. Such bands tend not to sustain a serious longevity without a good reason, and the various members had dallied with solo work already anyway.

A forthcoming drama about the music biz has prompted the following:

Chaz Chance And The Prophets.

"A group of veteran rock stars from Roxy Music, The Smiths, Suede and Supergrass have teamed up to form a new supergroup for a TV drama series."

Roxy Music guitarist Phil Manzanera, The Smiths drummer Mike Joyce, Suede bassist Mat Osman and Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes have come together to make up Chaz Chance And The Prophets.

The fictional rock band was put together to feature in a new UK TV series called The Records, which tells the story of the ups and downs of a music industry talent agent.

Welsh rockers Lostprophets have called it a day. They formed way back in 1997, and had some success in the first half of last decade. Their current fate is that their frontman is facing serious allegations of child abuse pale

Though several members left in recent years, it now seems that UB40 will reform (or at least some of the original members will)
Vocalists Ali Campbell and Astro and keyboardist Mickey Virtue, who together started the act in 1978, said on their website they were recording new songs.

Campbell and Virtue left the band in 2008 and Astro quit in November 2013.

British boyband The Wanted are apparently going on hiatus in the near future, after the mis-fires of their most recent album (which is a shame - despite rubbish like 'Walks Like Rihanna', they did show signs of trying to broaden their palette a bit). That they were so overtaken by One Direction probably didn't help, either.

The Civil Wars announce their split, once and for all
The Civil Wars have conclusively announced their split. Two years after stating that they were “unable to continue as a touring entity”, the country-folk two-piece shared a goodbye song and a message gesturing to their forthcoming solo work.
Didn't hear much from them anyway, but what I did seemed alright to me. Oh well.

Jason Orange has decided he doesn't want to commit to a new album/tour with Take That! - the other three are going to carry on, though. Not entirely surprising, or all that crucial.

I still find it so baffling to see that Take That's ONLY Top 40 hit in the states was Back For Good. Certainly not their best song, though will take what we can get. Going back and looking through the UK charts has introduced me to soooo much good music. Take That were always charting with something awesome! It's highly unlikely in the US to meet anyone under 30 that would even know Take That .... (bows head in shame to our music industry).

Liam Gallagher has announced that Beady Eye, his post-Oasis project who knocked out 2 albums in 3 years, have come to the end. Noel's got a new album coming in the next few months, I think.

Legendary Canadian rockers Rush may or may not be heading for the final encore:

Rush star Geddy Lee 'optimistic' over band's future
The Canadian rock band completed a 40th anniversary North American tour this summer amid rumours it might be their last.

Earlier this week it was reported drummer Neil Peart considered himself "retired".

But in an interview with the BBC, Lee said he was "optimistic" that Rush would play live again.
Given the number of acts from the 1960s currently celebrating the half-century bandwagon, it seems somehow a bit naff to throw in the towel at a mere 40 years.

There are rumours that Robbie Williams will be re-invited to work with Take That! again soon in view of their 25th anniversary. The stories have come from TT though, so might well be just wishful thinking.

Hot on the heels of the above, the Spice Girls are supposedly planning to reform again. However, only 3 of them are involved; Ginger, Scary and Baby. Posh and Sporty are presumably otherwise too busy. The 20th anniversary of their 1st album & single are the peg on which they're hanging the excuse for this money-grubbing exercise.

Brit indie rockers The Maccabees are to split up after 14 years together:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsbeat/article/37011628/the-maccabees-are-breaking-up-after-14-years-together
The group say they are going their separate ways at their "creative peak".

"The decision has obviously been an incredibly difficult one, given that The Maccabees has been such a huge part of our lives until now," the band said in a statement.

Their last album, Marks to Prove It, was their first number one in the UK and they recently headlined Latitude festival.

Hugely successful Japanese boyband SMAP are going to split up after 25 years.
The Japanese boy band, which sold 35m records up to last year, will disband on 31 December, its management agency said on Sunday.

Rumours of a split had been rife since the turn of the year, but had all previously been denied.

Its five members, who are aged between 39 and 43, are now expected to pursue solo careers.

The band, formed in 1988, has built up a huge fanbase in Japan and throughout Asia with members appearing frequently in films, soap operas, and commercials.

Members of SMAP, which stands for "Sports Music Assemble People", have also appeared on cookery shows and Japanese coverage of the Rio Olympics.

One of Canada's most enduring bands, The Tragically Hip, played their last gig after 30 or so years, because lead singer Gord Downie has a terminal brain cancer. Current PM Justin Trudeau was among those attending to pay tribute to a much-loved band coming to an untimely finish Surprised

Bros brothers reunite for 30th anniversary concert
Twin brothers Matt and Luke Goss will play London's O2 Arena next August. But original bassist Craig Logan will not take part in the reunion.
"I've always wanted it to happen in my heart," Luke said. "But I wanted it to be the right time."

^^^The Bros reunion gig sold out so quickly, that they're turning it into a tour as well:

Bros reunion expands to full UK tour
They said they would play London's O2 arena on 19 August 2017 - the anniversary of their last ever gig, at Wembley Stadium in 1989.
The show sold out "in seven seconds" on Friday morning, said promoters.
As a result, six further dates have been added, in Manchester, Birmingham, Nottingham, Newcastle and Glasgow, along with a second night at the O2.

Still following on from the Bros story, original bassist Craig Logan has been talking about why he won't be part of the reunion. Basically, he doesn't want to, and doesn't expect that the audience wants him to, either. Nice to know some folk in the industry have level heads. Of course, as a look at his post-Bros CV shows
He was head of RCA Records from 2006 to 2010 and now runs his own company, the London-based Logan Media Entertainment, which looks after artists including Anastacia, Dido and Aston Merrygold, formerly of JLS.
He's busy enough as it is.
