Sorry fans of X Factor band Stereo Kicks, they’re over!
In a statement on their official Facebook page, the group said: “We have considered endless ways of how we might try to make this work, but it is logistically impossible for us to continue as Stereo Kicks.
“From the bottom of our hearts, we will be forever grateful for all of your hard work, support and love. We can’t thank you enough.”
The eight-piece auditioned for The X Factor in 2014 as solo artists, before Simon Cowell decided to join them together.
A public vote was held to decide their name, and the band were mentored by Louis Walsh, making it to the eighth week of live shows.
Continuing their Facebook message, they said “We all feel the time has come for us to now continue our journeys individually.
We have learnt first-hand just how tough the industry is as an unsigned act. Unfortunately, due to these circumstances, we are no longer able to carry on as a band”
“We have considered endless ways of how we might try to make this work, but it is logistically impossible for us to continue as Stereo Kicks.”
Stereo Kicks – Tom, James, Barclay, Jake, Chris, Reece, Casey and Charlie – scored their first Top 40 hit earlier in July, when Love Me So reached Number 31.
We’ll miss you boys…
