UK band Wild Beasts are calling it quits. They announced the breakup via a letter posted on their official social medias, saying, "The four of us have decided, for our own reasons and in our own ways, that it is now time to leave this orbit...We're care takers to something precious and don't want to have it diminish as we move forward in our lives." They add, however, "Before we go, we'd like to celebrate with you," saying they'll be in touch with further announcements.

Wild Beasts released five albums, including 2009's terrific Two Dancers and last year's very good Boy King. You can read the band's full breakup announcement, and a few videos, below.
