Indie pop duo MS MR are back after a seven-year hiatus to release one last single and announce their break-up.
As they celebrate the 10th anniversary of their debut album “Secondhand Rapture” with the announcement, the band shared their desire to move forward with the project.
“When we realized that the 10 year anniversary of our first album, ‘Secondhand Rapture,’ was approaching, we knew we wanted to do something,” the band said in a statement.
“I felt it was the right time to formally end the band while celebrating and thanking our fans and each other for such an exciting and significant time in our lives.”
The band have also shared a cover of Harvey Danger’s “Flagpole Sitta” – listen to it and “Saturn Return” below.
The band emerged in 2012 with the first single “Hurricane”, and the 2013 debut album “Secondhand Rapture” was followed by the second LP, “How Does It Feel”, in 2015.
His broken statement posted: “With great gratitude, we are ready to leave the MS MR project behind: each of us has become a new person with wider ambitions, interests and tastes.
“But we are excited and committed to continuing to be a part of each other’s personal and creative lives. So, although this is the end of the band, it is not the end of our collaboration in each other’s work as LPX and alexmaax.
“That’s our latest single ‘Saturn Return’. We hope this latest musical offering as MS MR gives you the joy and closure it gave us. Thank you for letting us into your life for us – he changed the course of our times forever.”
