British rock group The Dead 60s have split after five years together. The band, who hail from Liverpool, England, decided to go their separate ways earlier this year (08) - posting a statement on their website, insisting the break-up was amicable. The official statement reads, "The Dead 60s are no more. We decided to call it a day just after Christmas (07). There's no big story, no falling out between us. We just felt like the band had run its course, time for us all to branch out + try other things. "A big thanks to everyone who has been partial to the success that we had and to all the amazing gigs/tours/nights out that we experienced along the way. And so, on to new things and new music. We will keep you posted of our new projects + hope to see you all soon." The group, who were previously known as Pinhole, achieved moderate success with their eponymous debut album in 2005 but their popularity began to wane before the release of the follow-up record, Time To Take Sides, which failed to scrape into the U.K. top 40 when it was released in January (08).
