Melbourne electro-pop duo Gypsy & The Cat have announced they will part ways at the end of their Virtual Islands album tour this October.
The highly-anticipated third album from Xavier Bacash and Lionel Towers took four years to piece together, with the pair stating they’ve achieved everything set out to with the project.
“We have come to a place with the band where we feel like we have achieved the things it set out to, and are incredibly proud of the catalogue of music that we've built along the way,” said a statement from the band.
“This is in no way a sad or bitter thing, we speak every day in fact, instead it's more of a decision to keep growing as individuals and explore our artistic limits in different incarnations.
"Lionel is going to be moving into the world of film scoring and I have a solo project under an alias with music coming soon."
The five-date national tour kicks off in September at Thredbo Alpine Resort, NSW following the release of Virtual Islands August 5 on their own indie label, Alsatian.
