R.E.M Break Up

“We walk away with a great sense of gratitude, of finality, and of astonishment at all we have accomplished”

After three decades and 15 albums together as a band, R.E.M. have called it a day. Their final record was this year’s Collapse Into Now. Says leadman Michael Stipe via the band’s website:

A wise man once said--'the 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. "We have to thank all the people who helped us be R.E.M. for these 31 years; our deepest gratitude to those who allowed us to do this. It's been amazing."
