Noah and the Whale, the UK folk-rock band who enjoyed success with albums like 'The First Days of Spring' and songs like '5 Years Time' and ''L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.', have decided to split up.

The Charlie Fink-led quintet had been together for eight years, releasing four albums - the last of which was 2013's 'Heart of Nowhere'.

They released a statement on Facebook not long ago, which read:

"Dear Friends

Noah and the Whale have decided to call it a day.
We have had an incredible eight years together and are immensely grateful to everyone who has helped us along the way.
There are too many people to mention in this short message but we would like to take this opportunity to give special thanks to all of our amazing fans, who have supported us so magnificently over the years and made everything possible.
