Chumbawamba won't be getting back up again. The English band, known for their 1997 hit 'Tubthumbing' have announced that they are splitting up via a post on their website.
"We do, of course, reserve the right to re-emerge as Chumbawamba doing something else entirely (certainly not touring and putting out albums every 2 or 3 years). But frankly, that’s not very likely. Thirty years of being snotty, eclectic, funny, contrary and just plain weird. What a privilege, and what a good time we’ve had", reads the message.
Chumbawamba formed in Burnley in 1982 and were well-known for blending punk, pop and political sensibilities in their music.
'Tubthumping' was the band's most successful hit, charting at #2 in the UK and #6 in the US and has been licensed to countless commercials and TV shows over the last 15 years.
