R.E.M. Split Up
R.E.M. have split up after 31 years together.
Says frontman Michael Stipe of this decision:
“A wise man once said: ‘Tthe skill in attending a party is knowing when it’s time to leave’. We built something extraordinary together. We did this thing. And now we’re going to walk away from it.
“I hope our fans realize this wasn’t an easy decision; but all things must end, and we wanted to do it right, to do it our way.”
The band will have a career-spanning compilation released in November.
