CAVAN, IRE (CelebrityAccess) – Irish rock band The Strypes have announced that they are calling it quits effective immediately.
The Cavan-based group, who were signed to Mercury Records, confirmed the news in a note posted to their Twitter saying: “Over the past 7 years we have played in toilets and theatres, in cafes and castles, from Scotshouse to Tokyo and back again.
“It’s been fun and exciting, dull and dangerous, easy, tough, frustrating, satisfying and amazing.
“It’s been a life and a living. But we’ve decided to call time on The Strypes. Thank you to all.”
