The album, the follow up 2016's Dusk and their fourth in total, was to be their first with new label Bella Union. It was announced last month with new single "Not Gonna Burn Myself Anymore".
"I'm very sad to announce that Ultimate Painting are no longer a band," writes the group's Jack Cooper on Facebook. "Anyone who has worked with us knows that the partnership at the core of this band has always been a very fragile thing, but due to an irreconcilable breakdown we will no longer be working with each other. Obviously if there's no band, then it's understandably not really in Bella Union's interests to put out the previously announced album, therefore I’ve asked them not to release Up! at this point in time, which they have agreed to. Thanks to everyone who bought our records and supported us. You know who you are."
"If it ends tomorrow," Cooper said in a press statement last month, "I'd feel really good about the work we've done together. There's a cohesion to it but most of all they're records that we made of music that we wanted to hear. We don't really have an agenda other than that."
