Aussie Band Jet Calls It Quits


Australia rock band Jet has announced that they are breaking up after 11 years together. The band released three studio albums during their career and sold over 6.5 million records.

"After many successful years of writing, recording and touring we wish to announce our discontinuation as a group," the band said in a statement.

They continued: "From the many pubs, theatres, stadiums and festivals all across the world it was the fans that made our amazing story possible and we wish to thank them all. Thank you, and good night."

The group, which consisted of brothers Nic and Chris Cester, Cameron Muncey and Mark Wilson, have promised that they will attempt to keep "their music, legacy and brand alive through new licensing, publishing, merchandise, re-records and releases".

Their 2003 debut album Get Born, which contained the hit singles "Are You Gonna Be My Girl?," "Cold Hard B*itch" and "Rollover DJ," sold over 3.5 million copies alone. Their last album Shaka Rock was released in 2009.
