Macclesfield's exuberant quartet Spring King have decided to call it a day after five years.

The group uploaded a statement to their social media pages announcing the split, "We are thankful for everyone that has come to our shows, screamed at the top of their lungs, bought our music, wore our t-shirt and joined the spirit of the band in the pit."

The statement goes on to reveal their January 2019 shows have also been affected, "Unfortunately this means we will be cancelling our London and Manchester shows in January. We felt like it would be a disservice to the music and to all of you if our hearts weren't fully in it."

We first caught wind of Spring King back in 2013 with "V-V-V-Vampire", before they returned with their punchy, anthemic indie on 2014's "Mumma".

2016 saw the group release their infectious debut Tell Me If You Like To, which we described as "catchy, consistent and conformable".

This year Spring King dropped their long-awaited sophomore record A Better Life, which featured huge tracks "Animal", "The Hum", and last "Let's Drink".

Spring King's split means they'll no longer play London's O2 Forum Kentish Town on 19 January 2019 or Manchester's O2 Ritz on 26 January 2019. Find out more.
