Snakadaktal have announced via their Facebook page that they're splitting after five years together.

The Australian five-piece formed in 2009, and as well as two EPs, released just one studio album, Sleep In The Water, in 2013. The band won the Triple J 'Unearthed High' competition in 2011, which is an Australian radio contest that seeks to dig up hidden talent.

In a statement on the band's Facebook page, they wrote: "Dearest friends, It saddens us to share with you that Snakadaktal has come to an end. Since we were 15, we have been sharing our passion for music together. Today, collectively, we feel that it is time to move onto different pursuits that we each individually wish to explore."

The statement continued, "Our goal has always been to create music that exists timelessly. We hope that what we have released will accompany you and be there for as long as you need it. It is yours to keep. We are proud of ourselves and feel fulfilled. It has been a journey we will treasure forever. Thank you. Always. Love Snakadaktal."

The band were scheduled to perform at Northcote Social Club at the end of the month, but fans are currently unsure as to whether the performance will still go ahead.
