Derby U.K. melody masters LostAlone have announced that they will disband in December following a final run of European shows. 

In a statement posted via Facebook the band imply circumstances beyond their control as the culprit for what feels like a premature end for the band whose new album, Shapes Of Screams, we put in the running for one of the best of 2014.

“This is not something that we wanted to happen,” they said in their statement. “Unfortunately for us events have transpired that make it impossible right now for us to continue the band we love.” 

Read the full statement below:

“Hey guys, we've some important and sad news to share with you.

LostAlone will forever be documented by our three albums of which we are immensely proud, the memories of the incredible support you have shown us, and the unbelievable places around the world we’ve had the opportunity to travel to together.

This is not something that we wanted to happen, and not a decision we took lightly but unfortunately for us events have transpired that make it impossible right now for us to continue the band we love.

We never dreamed that we would ever have fans as committed, passionate and supportive as you guys and we are extremely thankful to each and every one of you. We hope that this will continue as we take our first steps on our individual musical paths.

Hopefully we’ll see as many of you as possible at these final shows so we can say goodbye in person.

It’s our sincerest hope that in our physical absence our music will be safe in your hands. 
Listen to it, share it, play it loud, sing it, cover it, own it, wear it and spread the word of LostAlone

Breathe in the future and exhale the past.

Steven, Mark & Alan
