The dance rockers' mainman Rob Swire tweets that the band have called it quits

Very sad to hear about this as they are an amazing band and so epic live.

Post your reaction and feelings on this, as well as your favourite songs and memories,

NOOOOOOO.

Although I feel like they were on their way out, this is a real shame. I knew they were never gonna go back to their old days as in Hold Your Colour era, but still, that sucks hard. And while I don't really dislike Knife Party too much, it doesn't hold a candle to Pendulum imo.

I'm a sad, sad Gira. One of the few bands who always got it right (for me), it's a shame for them to have made it official (though it was pretty clear it was going to happen eventually- I just wasn't ready :( ).
On the other hand, I like Knife Party a lot, so it's not ALL bad. Still pretty bad, though. :(

Glad everyone feels the same about this, it is very sad to see them go! :(

I made sure I had all the albums on my phone last night, so I could play them back to back! :(

Got to love Tarantula and Propane Nightmares! :D

Not the biggest D&B fan, but it's really sad to hear that Pendulum have split up. Really great band. My favorite song is probably Witchcraft, though I've yet to listen to more of them.

Pendulum are probably my favourite DnB artist and I really like the genre, so this was pretty big news.

My favourite song is probably Watercolour because that introduced me. I also really like Hold Your Colour's title track.

Knife Party is nothing in comparison.

No, I loved Pendulum, so sad that they're splitting. I would have loved a last big tune from them, though...

Their songs were amazing, my favourites were Watercolour and Witchcraft.

Streamline please. It's a shame that most people only really know their stuff from In Silico or Immersion because imho they were reallllly at their best before then.

I know. But Pt. II has them about 8 bars in, and it's probably why nobody thinks of the second song and there's no publicity for it. It's not the only reason I like it (it would be really sad if it was) - it's only the reason I found about the album, it has a lot of other aspects that makes it awesome. I don't listen to them that much but when I do it's usually something that I find at least decent

Well, maybe we'll get into them later, right? It's the same for Daft Punk - I found out about Discovery first, then I slowly downloaded their other albums. It's the same here, it's just that they never have gotten the main spotlight, though they were famous. And now that they have Knife Party, it's not like the other dead bands who you can't get any new songs from.

Give it a few years, they'll do a reunion. Even if they don't they'll probably release some unfinished material.

I too am a big fan of them, I guess I'm a bit peeved about it
