Faithless have announced that they will split once they have finished their current European tour.
In a statement, singer Maxi Jazz said ''that after 15 years and six albums I think we've probably made our collective point'' and it was ''time to close the book and return to the library.''
"We've had, with you [fans], the most unbelievable, epic and moving experience, stretching over years and tens of thousands of miles. Joyful, exhilarating and empowering, we never for a moment thought an affair could last this long."
He added: ''If I devoted the rest of my life to the task, I could NEVER thank you enough. I have memories that will still be with me in my next life.''
''But, like when writing a song, you always just 'know' when it's finished... this is and was the "Thank YOU And Goodbye' tour and to be truthful, I really hope you just pick up the ball of your life.. And RUN WITH IT!!''
The group, which comprises Jazz, Sister Bliss and Rollo, released their sixth and final album The Dance last year.
Faithless will perform the “Passing The Baton” gigs at Brixton Academy on April 7 and 8, 2011.
