R.E.M. Ended as Band

Legendary Athens-based rock band R.E.M. announced on their website that they intended to “call it a day” as a band. The official announcment read: “To our Fans and Friends: As R.E.M., and as lifelong friends and co-conspirators, we have decided to call it a day as a band. We walk away with a great sense of gratitude, of finality, and of astonishment at all we have accomplished. To anyone who ever felt touched by our music, our deepest thanks for listening.” R.E.M.
