Fans pay tribute as Mallory Knox announce they are splitting up

"It's time to announce that Mallory Knox has come to the end of the road"

Mallory Knox have announced their decision to call it day, revealing that their upcoming UK tour will be their last.

The Cambridge band, who parted ways with previous frontman Mikey Chapman in 2018, released their self-titled fourth album last month. Now, they’ve broken the news to fans that feel unable to continue as a band.

“After 10 years, 4 albums and countless tours it’s time to announce that Mallory Knox has come to the end of the road,” said the band on Facebook. “Unfortunately we’ve reached the point where we feel we’ve taken Mallory as far as we can both professionally and personally.

“This isn’t an easy decision for us to make, ending something that we started when we were teenagers, but we’re grateful to all of you that have granted us the opportunity of a lifetime. We’ve decided that this tour is not only the perfect opportunity to promote what is our final record but also celebrate what has been an incredible decade with you all.”

They added: “We never thought we would achieve what we have and we couldn’t be prouder of the music that we’re leaving behind. Let’s go out with a bang, see you on the road.”

Fans have since taken online to pay tribute to the band and mourn their split:

The four British bands I wanted to focus on after the 2014/5 break ups has now officially been dwindled down to just one.

I really want to say thank you. Your music has been a big part of my life. Me and my wife bonded over it when we first met. 1949 was the first dance at our wedding and now we have the lyrics framed on our wall. Good luck for whatever’s next. Thank you for being Mallory Knox!
