Supergrass split up after 17 years together

[b]Supergrass[/b] have announced they are to split up.

The band will play a short farewell tour before quitting this June.

Jokingly citing a "17-year itch" for the reason to call it a day after six studio albums, they thanks fans in a statement.

"We still love each other but, cliché notwithstanding, musical differences have led to us moving on and of course we all wish each other well in the future."

[b]Supergrass[/b] will play four farewell shows:

[b]Glasgow Barrowland (June 8)
Manchester Academy (9)
London O2 Academy Brixton (10)
Paris La Cigalle (11)[/b]

Tickets go on sale on Friday (April 16) at 9am (BST).
