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."

There is no word on whether the band's forthcoming album [b]'Release The Drones'[/b] will be released or not.

[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).
