Dirty Pretty Things Split

British rockers DIRTY PRETTY THINGS have split up after three years together.
The band, formed in 2005 following the break-up of frontman Carl Barat's previous group The Libertines, has announced its decision to part ways to allow the group's members to pursue their own projects.
Barat has confirmed the news in a statement to NME.com - but insists he and drummer Gary Powell will not be reforming The Libertines, which broke up following the dismissal of junkie rocker Pete Doherty.
Barat says, "It is with some sadness we announce the farewell of the Dirty Pretty Things. It's been a glorious three years which we all would gladly live out again, but it is time for us to try new things (not The Libertines).
"We are reluctant to give up touring but will give the last waltz everything. We have and are determined to go out as we came in, after which we all have other ventures to be getting on with and splendid future plans. Heartfelt thanks to all who made it what it was, much love and we'll see you on the road."
