Starsailor singer James Walsh has announced the band is on hold and he is concentrating on his solo career.
The failure of their last album, All The Plans, to reach the top of the charts triggered the decision, the Chorley-born frontman said.
He added: "We just thought, why get back on that treadmill? I think sometimes it's good to stop playing the game for a while."
James Walsh will be playing at 53 Degrees on Friday, December 4. Look for a full interview in the LEP's WOW supplement.
