This afternoon (10 August) three of the current Chromatics members - Ruth Radelet, Adam Miller and Nat Walker - announced the end of the band.

Radelet, Miller and Walker didn't give a specific reason for ending the group, and didn't mention anything about their fourth member and Italians Do It Better label co-founder Johnny Jewel in the Instagram post.

"After a long period of reflection, the three of us have made the difficult decision to end Chromatics," they wrote. "We would like to thank all of our fans and the friends we have made along the way - we are eternally grateful for your love and support. This has been a truly unforgettable chapter in our lives, and we couldn’t have done it without you. We are very excited for the future, and look forward to sharing our new projects with you soon."

According to Stereogum, a representative for Johnny Jewel declined to comment.

Last year Chromatics shared a tracklist for their long-awaited Dear Tommy album, but it never got released. Their last album was 2019's Closer To Grey.
