It is the end of their world as they know it.
US rock band REM say they have decided to call it a day after more than 30 years of making hits and selling millions of records.
Members put a post on their website, thanking fans for their loyalty.
REM have released 15 albums since coming together in 1980.
Their most recent, ‘Collapse Into Now,’ was released early this year.
They were once dubbed America’s best rock and roll band.
Signing off, singer Michael Stipe said they had built something extraordinary together and it was now time to walk away.
